Nope, it doesn't look like that worked either (unless you're uploading a giant pink image)

I should say that this picture has 7 layers of a total of 23.

I can send any part of the image you would like. Maybe the baby's clothes?

Vikki ,
The size proportions are real. Every head hair,every piece of skin, evrey piece of harness, each white spot on each horse,etc was on a separate layer. I was looking for ccolor seperation, was I wrong?
Peace,
Vernon

Vernon,
You can use whatever method you like, but the results will vary.
It's only my opinion, but the method you've chosen is very labor intensive and the results are not realistic looking, in a "photographic" sense. However, if you are happy with the results, that's all that matters.
Question: What blend mode are you using for your layers? Usually when using seperations it should be set to "color".

Truthfully, I'm a bit confused by your postings. Although you've posted "help", and are asking for advice to make this (and others) more realistic looking, it appears you are happy with the results you originally achieved. Perhaps if you asked a specific question, we could be of more assistance.

I don't know how to blend my layers. Wouldn't I have to have one layer on top of another? I have been merging. Would blending help the faces in this picture?

Now I'm really confused!!
If you have several layers, they must be on top of one another.
You should experiment with the different layer blends to see how they effect your image. A good place to start, is to set all your layers to "Color" (except the very bottom layer). See the image below which shows you where to change the blend modes.


For some excellent (and easy to follow) instructions and techniques, I recommend Katrin Eismann's book "Restoration & Retouching". Here's a link to her site. Take a look around.

Vikki,
I worked on your orignal, to get this. As you can see ,it does not look like it was taken yesterday, that is where i need the help.
When I make a layer, I use new layer by cut. So there is nothing else in the layer. There are layers under it but, they don't have information in the same place, so I am not sure how to blend them.
Stick with me ,Vikki, I know you can help, if I can express my problems better.
Peace,
Vernon
