Ken, life experience would suggest that the groom's shirt was white. It could have been yellow, but your rendering leaves the shirt with a the color cast which distracts me. JMHO.

I managed to somehow lose the green in the flower stems though.

Swampy, you're absolutely correct. I think the nature of this picture requires a general overall correction that Ken did very well especially in the skin tones plus some specific corrections such as the shirt and dress to whiten them. I think sometimes we assume that if the general correction is valid the original poster can fine tune the image. I guess it depends on how much time each of us wants to spend on improving the image.
Personally, I think we'd have one heck of a great image if we combined Ken's great skin tones with your corrections in the whites etc.

Cheers
Dave

Thanks Dave. You are correct. I concentrated on the skin tone problem and didn't address the other issues that obviously need correcting. You are right also in that those who post solutions to the major problem in an image will endeavor to solve that area and leave the cloning, patching et. al. to the person originally posting the image. It can often take a long time to completely correct a photo. Sometimes it's a fun exercise though!

heres my try,

I adjusted levels by...

I increased the tonal range by holding alt and clicking on the black slider until pixels first came into view.
I then used the middle eyedropper to choose the most nuteral grey I could find in the photo (on the ribbons of the bouquet).

It was still A little too warm so I added a touch of cyan.

Maybe not perfect but a quick, easy method to be sure.

Speaking of combining, hope Ken and Swampy don't mind. Ken's skin on Swampy's image. Didn't do his hand though.
Looks great to me.
Cheers
Dave

Well Dave, the groom is holding on pretty tight-----most likely a circulation problem

Thanks everyone your help was wonderful!!!

Ken your skin tones are great. I never thought about converting to CMYK and then pasting back into RGB.

My brother avoided the norm and was wearing a yellow shirt - the colour looks like a cast rather than a yellow shirt.

My sister-in-law's dress was a cream colour - not the normal white. I also was frustrated with the appearance of a cast on her.

Both of them had spent a year teaching in Haiti and had dark tans which did not help the photo's problem.

I really appreciate everyone's help with this picture, all the advice gives me something to work with.

Just another thought

Swampy, you are right the twigs need to go - I was so caught up in the skin tones, that I forgot about the other issues in this picture.

The faces need some fine tuning to get rid of the shine. Swampy, I like what you did. Thanks

Thank you, Karyn. I never would have assumed a yellow shirt so I went for the white, but that wouldn't be hard to fix if I had saved the white mask... LOL
