Re: Another one for Craig

I think that you did a very good job with this. A couple of suggestions that I have heard in the past that helped me: There is a lot of white in the little girl's dress, which suggest a light color. Maybe lighten the color a little so it will look a little less metallic. Getting skin colors can be a challenge. I use Katrina Eisman's method of keeping a palette of blurred skin colors from other photos.

Re: Another one for Craig

very cool, britsdad

and to comment on dave's comment about the metallic look, when i was working on this pic, i noticed a sort of sheen also. i was thinking maybe satin or something smooth and reflective like that. so, i dont think you're far off there, britsdad. i disagree with the color choice, but ok.

the hair looks good as does the woman's dress.

you might think of adding a bit more color shading on the faces and the woman's neck, though. it's just a bit weak now that i see it in color.

still, all in all, a very nice job.

Re: Another one for Craig

Cheers Dave:-- I did start off trying ti get the dress yellow, but in hue sat layer the colourizer always looked too green, so I plumped for purple. Is there a way to get the colours you want with hue sat?
(That sounds stupid to me but I hope you'll understand)
John
Edit:---God! same time again ....Cheers Craig, glad I'm doing something right and I believe the dress would have been satiny.....and I'll have a look at the faces again..

Britsdad & Coloration

I felt that the faces were too pale. So copied the layer and used multiply blending mode. To that layer I added a layer mask and masked out the lower half of the photo which seemed to have better color and luminosity.

Re: Another one for Craig

i tend to use the worth1000 colorizing tut, and in that you are using different layers with masks to alter the hue/sat. but, you could also just mask out areas and apply your hue/sat to just a given area on one layer.

hehe, dont worry, britsdad, i aint purfact neider

Re: Another one for Craig

I think they both look good. Yellow is one of those colors that can be hard to find with hue/saturation, but it's there. I always have to fiddle a bit to find it. It's easier to find if you start with the saturation at 100%. Then look at the sample bar at the bottom.

Re: Another one for Craig

Hi guys....this is the one I'm going to print, Dave I took your advice and added a mutiply layer, but with a gradiant mask added (same difference) Craig it seems to sort out the pale skin on the faces. Here's a screen shot of layers pallet, only background layer not visible, just in case anyone's interested.
Thanks all for the input.
John
