Title: Starting another restore
Post by: Lynnya on October 10, 2016, 01:48:16 PM
Hi guys.. I'm torturing myself again  :) another challenge.. got some new tools so lets see how it goes.  Comments and critiques welcome.

This is the original

Ignoring the yellowing parts which I'll deal with later how is the general correction..

I used Margie's levels, auto curve, neutral gray using her method and I did adjust a tad with color balance sliders..

Hi Lynn,
Looking good. Sure enjoy your posts.
On the boy with the green shirt ... could the front of his shirt be modified a bit. Probably just me but it pulled my eye right to it.

Great job Lynnya.  The thing that bothers me on this one is the left arm of the little boy in green.
The upper part of his arm is pointing in the wrong direction. Here's a quick version of what I'm talking about. Yours is on the left.

Much better. I might make it a little more rounded, but that's just me.

Another good one Lynn! Know what you mean ... sometimes you work it so long I think the brain fills in the gaps and it takes another set of eyes to see the holes are there. Really nice work!

And Beth ... Good Eye! I too had to look and look and then it was ... oh yea!
