    Heres the deal. I have a very old southern grandmother named Ma Maw. I took a picture of her at the last family party. It was before I started shooting RAW and the end result is a good capture with a bad, blue halo exposure jpeg. My challange to you is to fix it, please!! I have converted it to a sepia type image to get rid of the bad backlighting, but i have to put this up for my mother in law to respond to. I really don't want to offend...

    Here is the one i shot

    And here is the one i made...

    I like B&W for the elderly, just seems right to me. Perhaps boost the contrast and lower the brightness.

    Alright, I like BW better than the sepia and am agreeable to the no color thing. However how can we make her teeth whiter? Is that possible?

    if it's in black and white...her teeth look white enough as it is. If you boost the contrast a tad, it'll probably make them look whiter.

    I wouldn't change anything, she looks fabulous, natural, thats a hell of a smile btw...:D
    If you dont like the colour, the sepia is the most.....attractive
    The B/W's are a little unforgiving..

    If you have Photoshop you can use the dodge tool to whiten her teeth.
