Well I believe the color is correct.  Whites are white and black is black.  Your off to a great start.😎

Ignoring the whites how are the skin tones coming.. maybe the lady on the right looking at screen is still too pasty?

Lynn, I think she looks pretty good. This photo looks like it is suffering more from age and the owner is going to be really surprised and happy to see it brought back.

I think the skin tones need a little yellow.

Hey Lynn. The skin tones seem off to me. This is what I see. Did you go back to the original and do the color correction or did you color correct the wip? Think Margie is on to something. Hopefully the color wizards will weigh in with some direction for you. Good luck!

Thanks Lyn.. this is a real doozy skin tone wise.. I may start over I think.  I did a multiply layer early on and I'm wondering if that threw everything off.. All there tones are so different.. and so "off"...

Back to the drawing board  ::)

Lynn, she may actually have looked that way--some makeup and powder and good luck color correcting.  :cool: The photos is much better that I doubt anyone is going to zero in on the woman, but I understand wanting to get it to look perfect. If you try to correct, I would do her on a adjustment layer so as to not change the rest.
