no, i dont mind, bill. feel free.

the yellow background certainly lessens the blue. good job on that. not sure about the skin color. the color in the dress looks good. but, what are those blue/purple glows in her hair and under her neck? did that come from mine or something you added? also, her shoe now looks a bit too colorful to me. the lips definitely look better than mine!

oly19, bad? you dont like it?

Craig

Craig,

I'm not sure where the purple came from. I think from adjusting channels although I didn't notice it as I was working. It may have happened (or gotten worse) when I adjusted the size down to post.

As for the shoe, I agree but I think it looks odd on all the images including the original (as you said earlier it looks very much painted on). I'm not sure the whole bottom of the picture isn't problematic and a bit distracting from the face. This would be a quick cheat to deal with all of it.... <G>

lol. when there's a problem, frame it! hehe.

i think that blue/purple comes from something i did with color balance. i looked at mine again and i've got it too.

nice job

Craig

Really great job!!!! Yes, it is overall blue, but I like it! ... By decreasing the yellow, the blue comes really 'alive' so, you could use the Hue/Saturation to lightly desaturate the blues only, or to lightly change their hue.... This would influence the blue of the dress as well unless you used a Layer mask to cover it...

Bill,

Great colours!!!

...Selectively decreasing the Magenta could help...

Bill,

it's my turn to hope you don't mind if I used your version of Craig's restoration to work on .. .... I think it was a pity to cover it with a vignette simply because some parts didn't satisfy you ...

I tried to fix those parts pointed out in Attachment 1

In Attachment 2 my version of your version and one with a soft darker vignette ...

thanks flora

and i hope there wasnt any misunderstanding when i said 'crap'. i meant that as 'crap, i missed that', not 'crap, you're wrong' i was banging my head on the desk at the time so my typing may not have conveyed the correct meaning

Flora,

Great job! I prefer the second one with the dark vignette. I actually liked some degree of the “burnt “ color of the background from the original and I think that captures some of that without the damage. Craig is right, I think with your work it’s probably restored!

My post with the frame was meant as a joke. Probably didn’t make that clear. I know oly said in the first post that it was a painting but as I mentioned earlier I wondered if it had not started life as a photograph that got hand painted. In any case I still think, whatever it is, that the face is lovely---very detailed and the lack of similar detail in the lower portion distracted.

Bill
