When you get lemons........

Here is a picture that a friend asked me if I could make it better. After trying awhile to correct all of the tone and exposure problems not even being able to address the composure problems I gave up and did something different. He loves the effect and now wants one of each of his 6 kids. Hope you like it.

Way to go Tex! That's using the old noodle. I've seen it happen before where someone was happy with something they didn't expect. Pass the lemonade please.

Hey Tex, did you you ever write up a tutorial on this project? It looks great! Would love to try your techniques.

Wow, I'm impressed, both with your creative solution and the lovely results. This would be a great variation for wedding photos. Any chance you'll share the technique with us?

Looks like you found a great way out of a tough situation and it worked to generate more work for you. Not a bad call in my book. Looks great.

Nice work Tex.

When I read your original post, I thought the image you had to work with was going to be really poor...but I was more than pleasantly surprised.

Things may have been smoothed out a bit with the resize for web posting - but the original did not look too poor to me at first glance and would make a nice start point for a traditional colour correction and or minor retouch.

I would be more than happy to offer help in improving the original image with the more traditional look in mind, but I think you are onto a 'photo-art' winner here...so since you found another approach, it is perhaps best that you did not go down the standard path as you originally intended.

Stephen Marsh.
