Thank you for you kind comments. Glad you liked it.
Your picture looks great too. There is a little bit of the oval left on the dress, but apart from that, the rest is very well done.
Your picture is looking good. There is a cyan cast on the lower part of the dress, but that’s easy corrected.
I just wanted to say thank you again for all the assistance. I keep coming back to look at everyone's methods, especially when I get stumped in a section and don't know what to do next. I am almost done now and will post my final result.
I think it is so neat to see how one picture can be made to look so different based on the artist's interpretation of what they see. I hope that one day I will be at least half as good as you all.
Thank you again,
Great job everybody!
welcome to RP!!
.... couldn't resist ...What a beautiful bride!!!
My first attachment is simply the B&A a plain restoration ...
In my second attachment are two different version of my restoration ... a simple grey vignette to make your Mom 'pop' out more ... and a soft, romantic pink/violet vignette...
Let me know if you'd like a detailed description of what I did...
could be my monitor, but in your restoration the shadows seem completely black ... leaving no details whatsoever in the bride's hair ...
Wow Flora you did a lovely job! In your first before and after is that a created background or the restored original? I also like that you were able to get the green back in the trim.
I plan on offering my mom two different versions of her picture when I am done. The first choice will be as close to the original, when it was taken, as possible. It was shot in front of a grey screen and lit from behond (your first attempt and others with grey backgrounds are excellent examples for me). Some people, and I agree (my progress shot I posted is so cool I think I see icicles ), find that look a bit cool, but I want her to be able to have a copy of how she remembers that day being.
I then want to be able to give her a copy that has been warmed up. I love the idea of adding a vignette around the edges (any recommendations on how to do this softly are greatly appreciated), and other people have used a warmer toned background and smoothed and warmed up the skin (love this too).
Well I've rambled on long enough now, off to bed.
Hi again Kerry and thank you so much for your kindness!! ,
I usually create vignettes on a blank Layer so I can play with Opacity, Blending and colour until I'm satisfied with the result. The procedure is very fasy and easy:
* Create a new blank Layer.
* Working on the newly created Layer, use the Elliptical Marqee Tool to create an Oval selection ... Transform the selection around the subject until you are satisfied.
* Invert the selection Ctrl+Shift+I ... Now, the borders and corners of your image are selected.
* Strongly feather your selection Ctrl+Alt+D ... in this case I used a 80 pixels feather Radius.
* Fill the selection with the colour of your choice.
* Experiment with Opacity, Blending and colour ...
