Heat damaged from 1971

I've had this photo for many years and just decided to tackle it...I'd be curious to see if anyone can do any better with it.

I converted to LAB mode and gave it a try, but I like your effort better.

Not better... just a different, quickly done version. Painted on color layers

Tired eyes here and I got sloppy with the FIREWORKS signage colour replacement exercise. Good practice though, thanks

Re: Heat damaged from 1971

Thought I'd have a play with this, used HSL and reduced the saturation of the yellows, made an adjustment layer for the grass and gave it back some colour, did a colour replacement on the sign, sharpened and then fixed a few holes and stripes it revealed with the healing brush

Re: Heat damaged from 1971

Hi all

New member, first post.

Just the basics on this photo.

Levels, desaturation to get rid of the yellow, re-colorization, and then deconvolution with IA.

Re: Heat damaged from 1971

Here's my take on the photo. Duplicated the image and, on the duplicate, increased yellow saturation until the discoloration clearly stood out. The blue channel from that duplicate, inverted and with a contrast boost from a curve, became my mask for the yellow discoloration. Back on the original image, I did one layer of global yellow reduction (sampled the yellow in a 'neutral' area, filled a soft light layer with that color and inverted it) followed by a new yellow-reduction layer using the discoloration mask. This produced a fairly even, bluish, washed-out image. Used a couple of curves to set neutral points and skin tones. Then masked selective color and hue/sat layers to tweak colors. Burned the vertical light streak. Did a modest smart sharpen. Made a black/white adjustment layer set to luminosity to improve tone (I think it was MarkZebra who gave us this tip). Finished off with an unadjusted soft light curves layer.
