4 Happy Ladies
« on: April 03, 2020, 11:28:34 AM »
Well I just downloaded this photo and was taking a look at it.  The top background is dark.  Is that artifact? or is it that the darkness represents shade from an awning or something?

Thanks.  :wnw:

I would think shade. It comes down further on the windows, like shade would.

Thanks.  I'll post an update.  Lots of messed up bricks among other things.

Well I went with the awning causing shade on the wall and window.  Using levels on each channel initially brought back a lot of color.  Here is where I am now.

Phil, great job on the repair and on the color correction. I'm good but wondered if there was more of a red cast. However, if this is out in the sun, it may be spot on. Just to tone it down a little, I used the gray dropper in Curves on the cement between the bricks on the left side.
