I think it is a good testament to your coloring that no one has mentioned it.. In this case silence could be interpreted as " It looks good to me!"... that would include the girls dress ... But, if it will make you a happy camper.. Change it if you must!

Just a hint (and I am being very picky!).. you might want to hit the color layer on the dress with a touch of Gaussian to blend it a bit.. and check the edges of the yellow.. other than that ..I think you are off to a great start and doing very good!

Thank you very much for your reply and for the sample dresses, are you saying the colour i've aldready used apart from the adjustment of the girls' dresses are ok, I am re-colouring the armchair at the moment and perhaps will re-colourize everything else and leave the skin tones intact, I've colourized the photo quickly just to show the client the skin tones, she is very happy with everything. I will use similar colour but perhaps less saturated, if you all don't mind I will upload the final photos for more critiques

Thanks very much

OOPS!
This thread is a good example of why Doug prefers for everyone to also attach an under 100K version of their picture so the thread remains useful in the future, regardless of external links.

The link in the first post is already dead and people have nothing to compare the coloring changes with and have to read all the way to post #14, to yet another link.... to have any idea of what they are trying to date

Sorry I had hiccups with my flickr account yesterday, I have altered the original post and put a new link using my pbase gallery the photo should now be shown. I find posting at 100k the image is pretty small and you don't get the full impact of seeing the image in it's original size therefore it's hard to judge.

I hope all is in working order and welcome any critiques. The client is very happy with both photos so I think I will send them to print I shan't change anything. I would like to thank you all who gave me critiques it is appreciated and they are valuable.

many thanks
