Chic Lady!
« on: November 18, 2018, 10:23:03 AM »
Hey y'all! It's been a moment for me, hasn't it? I'm currently tying to finish this restore. It's one of those that you zoom in and see something, then zoom out and see something else.  ;D

Wanted to share my progress. 

Current:


Original:


I've been using a second photograph from the same batch to clone parts of the tree. To get rid of the yellow damage on the grass, I was able to use a combination of hue/saturation shifts and color balance layers then cloned in missing patches. Still work to do filling in the tree and patches of damage to fix.

The overall tone is a bit too blue, and there are parts of the tree where you can see patches.  :P

RS, tell Margie not to use the Christmas wreath machine again on pictures.  LOL  You've done a great job of bringing out the Star of the picture as well as the surroundings!  PS.... welcome back

SHE'S ALIVE!!!

After one evil boss retirement, job upheavel, and detoxing from said boss's general bad juju, I have finally returned to this restoration (feeling very sheepish considering how much time has passed since I started.)

I think this one is finished?

Amazing repairs RS!  :up:
I wonder if it would be possible to have a little less shade so we can see her face better?
You are probably still working on that, the reds around the tree need to be toned down some.

Glad to see you back. Fabulous repairs! Hannie's tips will make it even better. Wondering if the purple coloring on her outfit may actually be damage?
