Lady in a peter pan collar
« on: June 13, 2018, 06:17:16 PM »
Hi gang.. this is my color correction for this image so far.. it may change a tad later.. comments welcome..also.. looking at it again. I assumed that the image of a person to the right was a shadow of the photographer but now I'm not sure.. is it  superimposed damage from another image? Your thoughts please..

I would say shadow, but the lack of a shadow from the woman does make you wonder. I will try and see if the family knows.

It is shadow, the lady's shadow is almost completely blocked by herself but it is visible.

The shadow is what makes it such a wonderful photograph. I love this one.

Sure have come a long way Lynn. Looking good so far. On her face, is that shadow or damage over her right eye (looking at screen)? Hopefully others will weigh in on the background.  :)

The Patch Tool in Normal>Destination might help with the blurred and discolored parts of the trees. They don't have to be exactly the same, just not distracting. Then go after the bushes on the right with the Spot Healing brush and remove a lot of the clone marks. The marks on the shadow are damage. Cleanup an area and then use that part with the Patch>Normal>Destination.

I'm sure you know how to do that, or even have a better way. Clean it up so it doesn't distract from the woman.

Hey girl. Think Bambi's suggestion will help with the clean up on the shadow and the ground left side of image. Thinking those dark spots are damage. Could certainly be wrong! It's a common occurrence in my home  ;D 
Good luck. You'll get there!  ;)

Looking good Lynn, I think Shadow is right about the dark marble like spots on the stairs.
