Hi all,

I'd appreciate some feedback on my wip please.
There was a lot of fine mud specs and some mould.

Regards,
Kim

Hi Kim, looking good. On my screen the whites are bit bright. Not sure if this is b&w or tinted so disregard the Channel Mixer layer. Just a suggestion.  :)

In addition to bringing back the blown white areas, I saw a few small things to work on - it's really close to done.

The older daughter's hair is lighter and discolored  at the top (where it meets her Dad's jacket shoulder). The younger daughter's arm on the left side of the image has some light blue blotches on it that you should be able to clone out. There's a colored spot and jagged shadow edge on the lower part of the Dad's tie on the left side of the image.

Some of the shaded areas on the Dad's face have pink-ish parts - if you made this monochrome, they'd probably just blend in and not need cloning - The odds are good it was a B&W print originally...

I don't think the photographer did the Dad any favors in putting a spotlight on the top of his shiny scalp, but I don't think we get to alter things like that which are clearly not damage in the traditional sense :)
