When I first started this it seemed pretty easy until I started to adjust the color and then I saw the dreaded lines..... yikes .....

I used a photoshop action called Picture Enhance to adjust the color and levels.... then I duplicated the picture and ran the top layer thru Xero filter "super smooth" until it looked very flat and smooth.... I lowered that layer's opacity until the lines sort of disappeared and then I erased the areas that I didn't want covered.... like people's faces, etc... I finished it with a Diffused Glow vignette.... there are still lines but I'm at a loss as to how to get rid of them.

Great work on this very difficult retouch Solitear,
The original was dark and full of grain.
Also it had a big dose of the dreaded moiré patterns.
I think the dark vignette works well with this photo.
Good work on the bride and groom.
I can’t see any moiré left on my monitor.

Solitear - Excellent work!

I tried this one and am ashamed to say I gave up.
A retouch to be proud of.

Well done

Regards

Steve

Thank you, Steve..... I know what you mean about the retouch.... it looked like a simple retouch until you opened it....... this was just an accident for me and the steps used probably won't ever work again for anything else, as I'm sure you guys already know..... thank you

Great job! I starting to give this photo a try, but as you said the color correction proved to be a bit difficult.
