The young man appears to be holding something, but none of the 10 channels provide the slightest clue of what it might be.

Best I could determine his tux is white, but I'll entertain other subtle color suggestions.

Does the curtain on our left appear to be too phonied in?

The skin tones have gone a little blue in the Photobucket images, they appear to be OK in the .psd file

Thanks for your time.


The StealthKat photo needs a caption.

The curtain is real. He is holding a gold chain, either latching or unlatching it. Try the green and blue channels after a levels adjustment.

Hi Terry,

How about this for a caption with an OPR slant. Cat: "I'd love to post my WIP to the forum, but I know those dogs are just waiting to get me! OK,  :P

Hi Terry

I played with the levels and curves, and it appears to me that the young man's tux is a light gray.

Here's the image:


The only problem I see with the drapes is right in the middle where there's a bit of a smear, rather than the flowered pattern. Otherwise I think it looks fine.

Thank you, thank you, thank you  Kiska.  I interpreted the necklace as the edges of a water spot and cloned it away.

And thanks GK for the light gray suggestion on the tux and the smear on the curtain.

Also, I added the vertical stripe on the left trouser leg that I missed first time.

Tori, your StealthKat caption is perfect...caused a BIG chuckle here.

Margie, I'm working on your caption suggestion with talk bubbles for the dogs...stay tuned.

Additional caption suggestions from forum lurkers are welcome.

Terry, you've done an excellent job on this one. My only picks would be that I think the young man's rumpled right sleeve is really damage and that the cummerbund should be all the way black.

Stealthcat is hilarious - wish I had the wit to contribute a caption.
