: I thought of doing it in colorbut 1906 was B&W.
First I used the burn tool on all the fogged areas to bring back detail. Then I used Digi daans B$W filter. I did two adjustments. First levels and then curves to adjust the different elements to give it an Ansel Adams look? I used the healing tool on the scratches and the clone to repair roof canvas. At first I tought of doing the center are to black canvas but if you look at the flowers it was clear to let the sun come in so leave it be. I used lens flare on the center floer table and a couple of spots thet light was showing through. I then tried Sepia filter, which gave a little snap to it and lastly the unsharp mask. I tried to keep the bushes and flowers in the rear visable. It was hard to determine what was a scratch and what was part of decore.

Incredibly nice, sharp, crisp details!

A bit dark...but that might be my monitor..

When I started on this picture, one of the first thing I wanted to do was 'remove the glare' as well....
I decided to leave it there because I liked the softer touch it gave to the picture ...

Great! It is a little dark, but that would be typical of photos from this day. Very sharp, good detail, and the sepia tone really makes it.

Thanks on my monitor its not that dark. I remember breing in one of these many years ago and it is on the dark side with spots of sun light. LIke I said Flora I did it like Ansel Adams would but when I saw yours I realised it looked good that way as well. Isnt it great all the diffferent ways you can see the same picture

Too much glare on the table in the foreground,its distracting in that position, but otherwise extremely good. I like the definition you have achieved.

Very nicely thought out. The lens flare really adds interest. I like the overall tone and contrast you have chosen.

What a great image. Not something that I would have thought to have done to it for sure.

Love how the lights are vivid.
