Title: Old family group
Post by: Lynnya on January 08, 2017, 09:15:09 AM
Just starting on this lovely image.. don't ya just love these oldies  :loveit:
here is my wip so far... levels, curve auto, black and white adjustment layer - trying to keep it where I can see the eyes and mouth details.. Do you think the white splotches around the tree are leaves or damage.. I think the palm shaped leaves are real but I'm not sure about the white rounder ones..The more I work on it and look at it ... it seems like it may be light coming through the trees...

This is a great oldie and I like where you've taken it so far! The smaller white spots look like light coming through the tree to me, but that bigger one just below the pic's edge ... not sure about that one.

In the latest WIP it does look more like damage. Looking very good by the way!

Lynn, Looking good. The boy on the bench on your right needs to have have his pants coming down to his shoes--just lighten in an area and the mind will get it. Otherwise he is cut off from his shoes. I don't know if it is just me, but does anyone else want the whites toned down a little?

Happy Monday Morning! Really like what you have done! That Margie has the good eyes!  :D
The skirt on the little girl on the right looks great. Maybe zoom in and check her ear ...  can't tell for sure. Looks like the guy in the back on the left, there's a wee bit of a line on his face onto the hat. Awesome how far you've taken this wonderful oldie  :up:

Thanks Shadow.. need your eyes every time  :up:  I don't know what that was near the girl's ear.. could have been damage or a ribbon or something.. It's gone now and is less distracting.. also fixed  where I think you meant on the guy in the back left.. let me know if you see anything else..

Lynn, I got your upload and it looks great. Nice job on the skirt, even if I got confused and thought it a boy.
