Re: plz help

Hi, and welcome. If you are using photoshop I would try the auto lvls command. I tried it and it did a nice job. The color is still decent where the frame was covering the photo. If someone spent some time they could recolor this photo or you could just have a nice black and white. If you want to take the time and learn, bring up the curves dialouge box and just tear in and start moving sliders. Youcan't hurt your picture as long as you don't save. You can find some good tutorials here on Retouchpro too.

Hope you don't mind, but I did a quick recolour using this technique

You could spend some time and do better as I could only guess the colours.
(Apart from the plaque on the wall...I remember them )

Great job. One sugestion; you didn't do anything at all to the teeth and they are still looking bw. I would color them with and off white that leans toward yellow.
