Some of my restorations (MooNy)

106 layers, almost 8 hours. know that the shoulder is not even close to be perfect, but i did all i could.

I would love some comments on it. It was my firs project this hard to recreate.

Looks great to me. You did a very nice job with keeping the origional background. On the shoulder I think I would try burning down just the dots. I think that would help a lot.

Re: Schoolgirl restoration (MooNy)

I noticed that the photo has a yellow tint, so using curves and the white eyedropper on her collar I adjusted the color

Re: Schoolgirl restoration (MooNy)

First of, all, thank you for the appreciation.
I know about the yellow tint, i tried to remove it, but he "client" wanted it more natural. Removing the yellow tint enhances some other colours and makes them burnt and saturated. I will post one of these days some of my retouches too

Re: Schoolgirl restoration (MooNy)

mooNy214, welcome to RP.

nice job on the clean up. only thing that bugs me is the brightness level. it's a bit high. levels, curves, brightness/contrast, or even a histogram adjustment shld fix that.

Re: Schoolgirl restoration (MooNy)

I'd run a level adjustment, with just a bit of color touch up.

Re: Schoolgirl restoration (MooNy)

klassylady25, i really really really appreciate what you did, but some advice here: the photo is over-contrasting. What you did to the hair mattifies it, remoes the natural shine and added the color on her ear.
The background shadows are too black and between her hands, something turned out from pinkish peach to blue.What i like is the way you repaired the uniform's dots, but too much contrast and some blur on the table...
I've dealt with tones of colour enhancements and retouches last summer when i worked, and trust, i did learn something from the 48000 images i retouched. Don't over contrast, don't oversaturate.

Re: Schoolgirl restoration (MooNy)

Another photo i restored. The person that gave the image tom me wanted too keep the brown tone of the photo's grays, but remove the "wrinkles" and the "stick" coming out behind the girl's head:

Some comments would be highly appreciated

Could a moderator please change the topic's name to: "Some restorations (MooNy)" pretty please?
