I picked this one up off the dark room floor and scaned it so I could try photoshop.

Lots of potential here, but as is it seems a touch overexposed?

You've lost her eyes a bit in toning down the highlights, they've gone a bit 'vampire about to bite'.

I'd also stay with the original crop or lose the chair. When cropped it, the black chair looks she could be wearing wings.

Also if you scanned it in colour, try using the channel mixer to do the black and white convertion, you have loads more control. Finally a bit of sharpening is good.

Hi Steven, now that the technical stuff is sorted - who are the subjects, and is there a story behind the pic?

Tks
Ken

Yes there is a story. They span 5 gererations. It was taken last summer at a family reunion. It is my Grand mother and my Grand son. I shot this pic with Fuji Neopan SS. Processed it by hand in the dark room. This particular print had several dust specks and was culled. I attempted to manipulate the negative to remove the Bass Pro Logo from the chair. Was unsuccesfull in that attempt however I managed to blur it enough that it could not be read. I scaned this print so that I had something to use to learn Photoshop. This photo also won a Superior in class at the county fair. Of course the final print was dust free.

As Paul Harvey would say " now you know the rest of the story"
