"I've just heard about this website today and this was just what I was looking for....

Attached you'll find a scanned picture of one of the photographs that were taken during the wedding of my parents. It's the picture they have the best memories of as it stood on their mantelpiece for many, many years. Unfortunately it was not protected by glass so it was very vulnerable to influence of ligth, dust and other dirt.

As my parents are married for 35 years in october, I would like to present them a revitalised version of this picture as a gift. As you can see, the picture isn´t the best anymore and you can clearly see the outer border containing more or less the original colors and certainly on the left side there´s a lot of brownish stains and color cast.

I´ve spend several hours now by myself trying to get an acceptable result and I will of course continu trying but as october is getting closer and closer, I thought it was wise to search for help. And I hope your website and the very many enthousiastic experts - who are not only visiting your site but do a lot of very respeactable contributions too - will help me....

I hope this is enough information and that this picture can be a "challenge" on your site...

Thanks very much and kind regards,

Michael Kiewiet

Challenge: Restore this photo and tell Michael how you did it

Do your best to restore "35th Anniversary", and post the results here using the following guidelines:
  • Make sure you're using the largest version of the Challenge photo
  • Enter your name in "Enter a title for the photo"
  • Enter the Challenge type and number in "Descriptive Keywords" (ie: "Photo-Art Challenge #501" or "Manipulation Challenge #132"
  • Include a complete description of the steps you used under "Photo Description". (You might want to write it elsewhere and paste it here)
  • Attach your file as an 800 pixel wide JPG file, compressed so that the overall file is under 200k (this usually means 60% compression).
  • Make sure you post to the correct Challenge
  • If you expect any comments for your entry, offer your comments to other entries

As always, there are no winners, no losers, no prizes, only a sharing and learning opportunity for everyone.

How you restore and how much you restore is up to you, as long as you fulfill the Challenge. Have fun, and good luck!

NOTE: As is the case for ALL RetouchPRO Challenges, there is NO expiration date on this Challenge. Even after other Challenges go up, feel free to upload your version
