Yeah, well I'm with you on this one, too, Craig!

Thanks everybody!!!

...After reading all the posts, I really started having doubts about the bow ....

Bill,

I also realized how bad the scan bands were well into my restoration ...

Flora, stand firm, don't let them sway you...it WAS a bow. (And if not it is now, at least in our worlds---ever watch Bob Ross' painting shows? It's your world, add a happy little bow!)

I saw those bands right off in the original but then when I copied the red channel and started I thought that had eliminateed them on the girl, they only seemed evident in the background there. Until I started adding color then I realized they still ran through everything. For both good and bad, I suppose color can bring out details.

Bill

No, no! I wasn't for a second suggesting it wasn't a bow! It certainly is! Just that I wasn't very observant! *lol*

Craig,

I think you've gotten the best results so far. This is the hand colored photograph look I was going for but you did it much better. Your colors look closer to what I think the were in the original and you got completely rid of the scan bands.

Good work!

Bill

thanks bill,

it looks a bit blue overall to me. if you wanted to mask the girl and dress and remove some of the blue in the background, or vice versa or both, it might work out better. i didnt want to lose any of the blue in the dress, so i left it for comment.

Craig,

You may be right about the blue. I did a few adjustments using your image and masking parts as you suggested. Changed the background color and increased the red in the skin and tried to bring out some more of the color in the dress.

I think the picture is a bit light/bright overall but when I played with curves I couldn't get anything I really liked better so I just adjusted the curves a bit for the background and then the seat.

Oh, and I added a layer to add color to her lips.

Hope you don't mind my fiddling with your work...like I said I think you had the best repair job.

Bill
