" I think QC is going to have fun getting all the photos to come close on color."

Margie, you hit the nail on the head!  One of the hardest things to do is to have multiple individuals working on wedding picture because of the color variables.

These type of pictures remind me of the batch of school pictures I took on.  I wanted all of them so all the 'yearbook' color would be the same.  Once I did the original correction of color on an adjustment layer and clipped it to the picture, then when I brought in another picture, I duplicated the curves layer onto the new picture.  Probably bass ackwards way but it worked for me.

I have all the confidence that Lynn will make this picture shine!!

One tree is showing up in the left but only the trunk. Then there is a bird house behind the middle boy, but you really can't tell make out strong details.  I can see the peak, door opening, and a little bird, the left of the middle boy. I took it into Lab, and that helped the colors did come up a little more. 


This is Candy play below.  Whatever you choose to do Shadow, the family will be thrilled to get their babies back!!  :hug:

Candy, the sign is back in Bambi's Gallery with her email address. Wind must have blown it away.

Lynn, I am impressed! I think anyone working any of these particular wedding photos would do well to look at any other ones in the gallery. You could use them for reference and also borrow parts if the dimensions are close. I even thought of ones with the bride where you flip horizontal to match a similar photo of the bride/groom. I think QC is going to have fun getting all the photos to come close on color.

As to the mirror, looks like a fair silhouette of the bride and the groom is toast. Not sure whether to put more shadows and a blur in.

My 2 cents to add to the confusion.  :)

I wonder what was making you doubt your approach? Although the transition between hair and the dark background will require some care, I think you have the color in the restore matching the undamaged areas and the overall direction of the hair & parting match.

I am guessing that there were some trees in the background - very dark and blurry - so making the dark background mottled in some way will probably avoid it ending up looking like a roll of black paper in a studio shot!

Was there something specific you weren't comfortable with?
