Hi Scott
Welcome to RP

I normally charge extra for one hour service.

It is very similar to your Concorde picture

Levels
Colour Correct in CMYK
Neat image

I can't tell you the exact steps, but it was a lot of playing with color balance and curves in the red channel.

There's still some work to do on my version, but it's fixable.

Nice, Ken!

Did pretty much what Ken did. Set my highlight and shadow points then duplicated, changed to CMYK and made some skin adjustments. Flattened, selected, copy and pasted back into RGB file. Found there was still a lot of blue fringing and blue hair so sampled some skin and painted in Color mode. Sampled some of the background to the right and did the same thing to eliminate the blue to the left.

Edit: I like the red Rondon got so did a Color Range and filled with sampled red in Overlay.

Cheers
Dave

Channels

This is Just Channel play... other than the Jerseys which I selected then manipulated with hue and saturation. the girls seems to have blue eyes that can be drawn out further as you address the other needs of this photo.

hope this is helps you in your work.

oops! dog ate the method

I did and undid lots of stuff and had the results on multiple layers with various opacities which I combined.

but basicly I adjusted the channels in several ways.
1. was to bring up the channel window and after viewing each channel i selected each and made some minor adjustments using the adjustments allowed to single channels with image/adjust as well as filters.

2.with channels set back to RJB I used image>adjustments>channel mixer on separate duplicates of the background layer. this is where the opacity as well as layer placement played it's part once I had a few layers.

3. for the Jerseys i used the layer that allowed me to select them best with the wand. then made a new layer with them on it ... ctrl C then ctrl V. then I used image>adjustments>hue and saturation on them.

well hope this helps... I'm sorry I really haven't a set method... I just hop in and see what happens..

one note though. I was ready to post a reply with different results when Ken responded with his rendering... quite nice ... comparing my results at that time I decided it was back to the lab.

Thanks Swampy and Rondon

Scott

I just converted to CMYK to get the skintone.

First you need to get the overall cast corrected.
If you want to try Auto Colour then I suggest you read this tutorial first

This tutorial will help with the overall colour cast and remove the Green
