Blue accident

I received this image from a friend who scanned a b/w photo in RGB. I had to give her telephone instructions, long distance, to get a good resolution image.

I decided to capitalize on the blue tint and colorize her skin and hair. I'd be interested to see what others might do with her.

Hi MaryLynn, just played about with levels and curves, gave her an eliptical vignette, bevelled and textured. Not sure if I like it, but thought I'd post and see what others thought.

Very nice verision, Gary. I like the texture.

My version with vignette and a slight sepia tone.

Nice work, both of you. Thank you!

Gary, I like the effects of the vignette, texture and beveling.

Ken, I like the contrast between her hair and the background. The overall effect is a pleasant softness.

Nice job Ken, you've seperated the figure nicely from the background, whilst still keeping the feel of the piece. Highlights on her face possibly a little strong for me, but that's really just a judgement call, it does'nt detract from your excellent picture at all.

yes, I agree about the highlights, a bit much. I do think, though, with the sepia it would print nicely on Epson's Velvet paper.

thanks,

Hello MaryLynn,

I tried my hand at this one. Quite challenging

Played with channels, L.A.B. and left in dark tone to highlight the face and lace. Some dress detail was lost and the picture blends into the background, but I didn't feel there was too much of the dress that could be recovered - thus the facial focus.

Detail lost in the save for web, but that is also anticipated. Not sure even i am happy with the appearance of pic i am posting, but c'est la vie.

Sean

That "blue tint" sure looks like the reflection one gets from a silvered print. If that had been copied with a polorized light souce, (called double polorized light) then the tint would be gone, the contrast of the image improved and you could have saved a lot of work in photo shop.

You are not very far from me, wish we could get together with that orginal print and do a show and tell!!!

Mike

Hi Mike,

I agree it would be good to get together with the original print but unfortunately it isn't in Washington state. The image I have was emailed from Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, and I am not sure that was even the original. The original may be in Illinois. I'll see what I can find out.

In the meantime, I would like to know more about shooting photos with the digital camera. I may gain access to several hundred photos and documents that are in the possession of a relative in Spokane.

Thanks, everybody for your input on this photo.

ML
