Post by: Shadow on October 09, 2018, 05:30:11 PM
This little cutie could use some extra eyes please. What say all of you?

I think it's 96% of the way there, but needs a bit of overall contrast and some of the darker and faded areas evened out.

Here's something that I hope explains what I mean

I didn't include the second screen mask as it was just a few areas - like the girl's socks - that needed a little extra lift. The Contrast layer is just a curves adjustment layer with the black point and white point moved in a bit. You could play with the curve if you thought it needed it when you're looking at the full size image.

Let me know if you have questions (I don't want to belabor the point if it's already clear :))

Thanks Lynn and thanks Jo Ann. Always appreciate the screen shots. Made perfect sense.

Better?

It is better. I think the socks are still a little dark - even if the lower draperies are in shadow, I think the socks would be lit. I think it's that dark brown staining that made the lower front section so dark.

Looks lovely Lyn.. I agree with Jo Ann that the sox could be a little whiter..

Lyn, can't add much to what has already been said. Big improvement and one tiny suggestion might be to have just a little darker around where she is sitting so that she doesn't look like she is floating.

One more suggestion for your already beautiful restore Shadow:  perhaps one of those Multiply layers like Jo Ann did with a layer mask and then brush over the girl's face, sweater and top part of her pants?  (you can vary the opacity of the brush and/or layer)

Thanks Margie and Hannie. Added that Curves/Multiply ... see if this brings it home.
