It's best to post a reduced-sized version here (that way when someone looks back at the thread in a few months the image will still be here and they won't be left wondering what we were all on about) but include a url to a full-sized version stored on your own web space if you'd like us to look at that. Everyone here is really friendly and helpful, certainly on the restoration and retouching side, so don't be afraid to ask any questions as you go along!

To show another option, here is a colorized version. Used Multiply layer blend and then used the Levels adjustment layers to adjust colors -- using it once to bring up the red/yellows and using a layer mask to mask out the grass, then another Levels adjustment to bring up the greens, masking out the non-green areas. (My masking may not be exact, but you can get the general idea -- once you get the general idea of masking. )

I cropped the image to reduce some of the sky and to emphasize your aunt.

Jogray,

You're going to have a lot of pleasure working on all of your photos! The members here all know how much there is to learn -- at the beginning, and still now, so most will always be glad to point you to info and techniques that you can add to your personal bag of skills.

Take a look at our Tutorial area and the tips sections. Especially look at the Challenges (both new and old sections) for Retouching and Restoration -- you can find a photo that has similar problems to one you're working on and see how others attempted to deal with those problems.

I'll echo Leah on how valuable Katrin Eismann's book is -- did you get the new release with our "janitor's" work (Doug Nelson) included?

Welcome to RetouchPro -- I've learned a lot here, and you can also.

Thankyou Goldcoin!

My cousin's (the subject of the picture) husband came to visit the other day, first time ive seen him since she died, he was so flattered/touch that you'd all taken the time to do the picture, i put them all on disk for him thankyou again

the reason ive been so quiet is because my Katrin Eisman book finally came, i havent put it down since I'm reading it over and over to make sure it all sinks in
