Re: Is this beyond repair?

Thanks everyone. I played around a little today; I'm 99% done. I will hopefully have more time to finish tomorrow. I'm at the point of trying to repair the dress. Haven't spent too much time on it; just quickly ran through it with the spot healing brush, but it's definitely not yet where I'd like it to be. What did you use, Cupcake, to get the dress so "clean"?

Re: Is this beyond repair?

Can someone critique this for me? I still need to clean up the dirt on the bottom of the dress, etc. I would have liked to show it to you completely finished, but I have to stop for the day and wanted to send this out and get some feedback before I resume tomorrow. But as far as contrast, levels, and those types of adjustments go, I think I've done all I can do. What do you think? Aside from a critique, I need some advise: My biggest hurdle right now is isolating just the background so that I can brighten just that area without consequently making the woman too bright as well. I tried lassoing the background, but I wasn't happy with that. Also tried curves. I'm not getting anywhere with it.

Her dress is too blown out and her skin colour looks washed out, you need to put some more skin colour in perhaps use the burn tools a bit or look at a colour photo of a black person that would give you an example how her skin colour should look.

Thank you. Can I get some more opinions? Does everyone else agree that the woman is too washed out?
