Restoring School Play
« on: October 12, 2016, 01:52:07 PM »
This poor image is a mess, I hope I can (with your help) send it home repaired with love.



this is the blue channel... seems to me the lady on the left is wearing glasses.. what say you friends.. I looked at it all a couple of ways and I think she is...
feedback appreciated.



this is my WIP color correction using levels, curves auto, neutral gray - probably need to add a little warmth maybe at the end? Where the red arrow is on the left hand boy? it's fuzzy.. do you think it's damage or actually a fuzzy neck thing..I can't figure it out as I'ts absent on the other side but they are all wearing a black neck tie garment.

Lynn, my guess it is the tie and not damage. The blue channel is great for seeing detail a lot of the times, especially if a photo has yellow and red streaking. Have fun as this one will keep you busy.

Yes to the glasses and collar thingy.
Don't you just love the expression on the face of the little boy in the middle?

Hi Lynn,
Hannie's right ... that little boy's expression is priceless. And yes to the glasses on the lady in the back and the black thing the boy is wearing. Color looks good. Like you, I find a little warmth is often needed later. Look forward to seeing your progress!

Beautiful result!

It is possible that your levels now need a little extra adjustment, perhaps even use a Color Balance Layer and play with the sliders some.  Keep in mind that you want a pleasing skin color, even if it makes the colors look faded.  A Vibrance layer can fix those faded colors afterwards.

thanks Hannie... I'll play with it..

added:  Hannie, the levels were out of whack (but you knew that lol) I adjusted them back to where they were in the initial correction and bumped up the vibrance some..I this any better? Oh and I played with the color balance a little, I'm not really used to color balance.. gotta learn it more..
