Re: Techniques to remove shadow?

Brian, to get rid of the yellow, add a Selective Color Adjustment layer on top of your dodge layer. Alt+Click on your dodge layer's Layer Mask and drag the mask on top of the white layer mask that appears on your Selective Color adj layer. The dialog box will ask you if you want to replace the ,ask - say yes. By placing your dodge mask on the Selective Color Adj you will restrict the changes to the areas you dodged. Now select the Yellow Channel from the pull down menu and drag the yellow slider to the left until the dodged areas return to normal.
The result should be color correct but you will likely find that the dodged areas will have an increase in Saturation. To fix it, just add a Hue/Sat adj layer. Do the same thing as with the Selective Color layer and replace the mask with the Dodge mask. Then reduce the saturation.
Chillin has done a super job as usual. Some people prefer to isolate small areas that need to be fixed and they use a different curve on each. I find a single dodge layer worked best for me on your image. However I did not spend the 1/2 hour needed to do a good job on it.
Regards, Murray

Re: Techniques to remove shadow?

Hi everybody!

Photodabbler,
congratulations for your new baby!!!

Your 1st born is just too sweet .... and what we say over here is that if your babies are all so beautiful you should make at least ten!!!!!

For your picture I used: Shadows/Highlights, Levels, Curves, Color Balance, Hue&Saturation and Vibrance Adjustment Layers plus several "Blank/Empty Layers set to" as described in this Tutorial

Let me know if you'd like more details...
