Still Trying

Vikki,
Am i getting closer. This time i also used the selective color like you suggested and curves. I was only concerned with the skin tone and hair coloring at this time, nothing else. I line my work up side by side with yours and i still cannot get the nice tones you get. Thanks to you as i look at my original post and now, i can see that it is a lot better. In fact i'm sorry i posted it, but then again i guess i would never learn. It looks baddddddd.
Wayne

I think you're getting it. Still, there is cyan in her dress. Use the "trick" to see what I mean. You can use selective color, set to the whites, and then remove the cyan.
I've been doing this for a few years, and I started off knowing nothing. It just takes practice, experimenting, and patience. Hang in there.
If it looks good on your screen, but different here, you may need to some calibration, or see what your color profile is in Photoshop. I always recommend sRGB, not Adobe's.

I used your trick and it made all the difference in the world. I am happy with this for now. I will move on to some other photo to practice on now. Thank you so very much for your help. Oh and i did do on last step, i used the shadow/highlights adjustment to finish it off.
