Help me create something artistic..., with an unintentional silhouette?

I like, Gary

You made the bg disappear and turned it into a certain mood more.

Lovely Picture! I can see why you wanted to salvage it, Mom.. :-)

In Photoshop CS, ran shadow/highlight then a jpeg reducing filter. I felt the overall photo was a little too warm for the mood so I reduced the reds.

I think it's nice as is. You don’t really need details to impart the feeling of the moment. Maybe just something like this.... You might even want to darken the figures more. It has the look of the old silhouettes and darkening out the detail would increase that. You could probably then find better background and matting colors. I tried to find something that matched what was there.

Perhaps this is too abstract considering the event, however, I'm just bouncing this idea.

Knocked out image.
Replaced bg.
some hand work.
Corrected color.
simplified.
Numerous hue & sat adj.
Added texture and lace frame.

My Try

Well, I gave it a go - I found it quite difficult to get the image bright enough - my first few attemps were disasters because of the strong discoloration in the blue and green channels. I ended up replacing both and then running the adjusted image through noiseware. The sunset is from our vacation this year when we stopped in Carmel for a day.

Say, that is yet ANOTHER idea entirely I hadn't thought of!

An image over another romantic type image!

Thanks

Here is my shot at it. I selected the bride and groom. You can use the selection tools but I used "imagiam: Auto recognition". It makes selections far easier. I then used CS2's shadow/highlight feature to bring them out. I then reversed the selection to dark and blur the background. I then applied the "Neat image" filter to reduce the noise resulting from the low light.
I then duplicate this image to another layer. I then guassain blured and screened that layer. I also adjust the opacity of the layer until I was pleased with the image. This second layer is used to create a sort of dreamy/misty glow. I then decided this image would be better off as black and white and then adjust the contrast. For this quicky tehre were a few things in the image I accidently overlooked. Suych as the bright window passing throu her vial. Also My selection of the bride and groom left far too sharp an edge. So I used the blur tool to correct for that a little. The final image could be better but all in all I like it.

thought i would give this another shot. dont ask how i got here cause i just couldnt tell you. basically, i wanted to treat this as a restoration, but didnt quite make it, so i went for close with a touch of photo art.
