Re: color balance problem

butch, I like your adjustments to this image
is that really all you did?
was it the curve that created the contrast?
this is my attempt
I used a neutralising curve for all but hair (hair went too green)
then a warmimg curve (subtracting yellow) for hair
then another with more contrast
2 soft light layers for doge and burn (based on a flat version of the green channel)
then lightened eyes and overall cuve for more contast and lightening in skin
any comments?

Hi Karin...good work

Those were the two big adjustments… I got the contrast and color by adjusting the curve of the red, green, and blue channels individually.

It has been awhile but I think I used a hue/saturation and another curve to even the shadow around the eyes.

I enhanced the eyes themselves and added a new catch light.

Anything by Dan Margalis if you want some hard core color management.

Anything by Katrin Eisman if you want info on retouching and restoration including skin.

Re: color balance problem

Here is my version ... just some Hue/Saturation, Curves and Levels ... hope you like it. I left it a bit on the warmer side.
