Whatever happened to this thread

I can't seem to find the thread that goes with the attached photo. It appeared a day or so ago and then disappeared. It may still be around but I can't seem to find it.

I was looking forward to see how this photo was retouched.

Thanks

Bill,

Thanks for your quick response. Guess this was a tough one to repair so responses were practically nil.

Thanks again.

Imagine how tough I find it. Been at this one for days but I am getting there.

I gave it a 'look over,' but it's a tough one and would require a lot of time to do it correctly. I couldn't find an easy way around this one. Sorry.

No drama.
I am not after a quick easy fix, I just want to learn how to do it.
I figured out how to fix the color cast and make the image a little better. Now all I have to do is get rid of those stains. That should be easy once I read all the tutorials I downloaded and check all of user Flora's posts.

I am in no real hurry, I reckon I still have about 20 years left in me before I fall off my perch.

Lightbulb Re: Whatever happened to this thread

Usually when I see large splotches like that in an image, I think to check my individual channels to see which one can help me minimize the blotchiness.

In this case, the red channel minimizes the blotches, but I like the tonal information in the green. Green's not really an option, but here's an idea to try:

On top of original image, make a channel mixer set to B&W, %100 red, %0 to both green and blue. Between the original image and the channel mixer, make a hue/sat adjustment layer. Now slide the hue adjuster until you minimize the blotches. Now you have a decent looking black and white shot with only a few blotches left to tackle (most notably in the bricks).

Attached is the above process with a quick levels to finish it. Using this should give you some good data to reconstruct with. After cloning/healing out the rest of the blotches, you might even be able to colorize this.

Hi Jafo
It looks a lot better. I'll try it out.
If I can get a similar result, I will be most happy.

Thanks for spending some time to help. Much appreciated
