This photo of my mother was taken in 1954. This is the most difficult thing i ever did in photoshop. Don't know wich background works best green or blue?? Hope you like it :-) (5 years and 1796 days ago)

..........this is wonderful....the skin tones, and the colors in the dress are remarkable.......someone in this contest said they did this work professionally, this is way above the entry they have submitted.........keep up the good work.

Also has have a tip for you. Cutting or masking the selection should be based on the sharpness of the image. By this I mean how sharp or how much in focus the image is. For example if you blow up an image to 200-300% and see how far the pixels merge or overlap between to objects. It may be in a high resolution image this is only 1 pixel but in a lower resolution or scan of an old photograph with large grain, it may be 3 or 4. It is this “focus” that your image selection should be based on.

avatar adeincyprus

good advice, but you didn't do this in your coat rebuild......there are large differences there...

author says:

Phew! PhotoRepair, I don't think i understand what you mean :-b. Is there a problem with the image? Please let me know

author says:

Is it a problem that i cut out everything with the pen tool, and that the edges look too sharp...?

avatar adeincyprus

author, stick with your instincts, this is a great job, don't be put off by comments.

avatar dmspaulding07

You did a great job. I did see that you cut out part of her neck. If you zoom in on the neck you can see the collar bone line is missing from your final image.

avatar adeincyprus

yes, I see this, I missed it first time. You have mistaken shadow for body line!!...in the original, it is not easy to see, so i think you could be excused..........

author says:

Yess i can see it now, i'll try to fix it if i still got time, thanks anyway

author says:

Thanks adeincyprus & dmspaulding07, fixed it. Boy that was a nasty gap I was going to print it on a large canvas. Glad i could fix it first.

Well done! One of the best I've seen. You got the colors perfect! Good luck to you!

FYI: If your concerned about comments and who you should take advice from, I'd stick with someone who well.. has a higher level, since they probably know what they are talking about. All opinions can be good but when it comes down to it, only yours really matters 2nd opinions are good too.

My opinion? This is a winner

avatar adeincyprus

Agreed!!....this is a great piece of work...........the very best of luck to you.
