Wouldn't the foliage on the background lilies have been green?

They are. If you look closely you can see some green, but they are too far into the shadows to get much saturation in them. I was concentrating on the subjects so didn't pay much attention to the background. I may try again to see what's there.

I couldn't even pull the yellows as much as you did. Those are the correct colors for the flowers and such, so bravo! I don't understand why my grandma left the photo in the sun for 15 years and didn't have a negative...I appreciate all of the help!

xarik, I had a go at the colour version as TS had already done a great job on the BW.



HOSTED PHOTO
please log in to view hosted photos in full size.


Unfortunately there isn't enough colour, or resemblance of colour in most of the image so rather than "guess" I left well alone.
Only concentrated on what I could retrieve, but tried not to push it too much. Lots of sun damage and artifacts that I couldn't
successfully deal with, so it is what it is.
I had to leave the bottom frame marking, as I didn't want to crop out any of the dress.
I've done a test A4 print, and I think it is acceptable (just don't expect original film image quality).
PM me if your interested in the full file, happy to give it to you.

I think this is about as good as it's going to get, but if I'm being honest, the B+W is more usable. It's just too far gone to make a print of it unless I were to actually paint in all of the old colors, which would take me ages as I'd have to go one item after another, and even then it'd look bad. Almost a lost cost unless it's B+W :(
