Hey y'all! I'm still working away!

After hitting wall after wall trying to reconstruct with the color version, I've added an RGB B/W adjustment layer (recommended by my distributor in the original download if the color correction didn't work). This made the repairs A LOT easier since I could concentrate on just the structure of a particular repair instead of the structure and color. What I think I might do is what Margie suggested and try colorizing the B/W when the physical repair work is finished.

One thing I need to toss out to everyone for thoughts—there is a dark band at her hair line near the veil. It doesn't appear to be part of the surface damage but when I look at it in the different channels, it looks like there is hair texture underneath? I don't want to "correct" something that is supposed to be there.

This is a snipping from the red channel... you can see a very distinct, sharp line that makes me think it is damage.

P.S. I'm graduating to chocolate covered espresso beans. ;)

rsvadnie, I think the dark band is just hair with a little shading on it?

Chocolate covered espresso beans ... oh my! Sounds tastefully stimulating!  :funny:    Agree with Hannie about the dark area. Look forward to watching you work your magic rsvadnie.
