After many different attempts I tried a plain filter go. I duped the background and added crosshatch filter 2x at15,3,1. I then set the dupe leve to linear burn. Then I added a dark strokes filter 2x at 4,10,0.
While there are still some damaged areas, most are camoflaged without sacrificing as much detail. Tried lightening a little, but it brough back too many scratches. The duped layer was set to 60 opacity. After flattening, I added one more crosshatch at 30% and adjusted curves very slightly.
Would like it lighter, but htat would require tools on my part.

Here on the site it appears much darker and more blown out around the head. I had more detail before sending. Oh well

Debbie,

Very interesting approach on this one. I don't think it's too dark at all. It adds a mysterious quality. The face looks good with a very interesting texture. Highlights are a bit blown, but I'm sure you knew that. Well done, and a big thumbs up! (Had to edit...I didn't see your post).

Ed

Thanks Ed
If you get a chance could you check out my torture test upload. Would really like some advice on my attempt but I think I posted too late to reach the experts. Thanks if you can.
Debbie
