"My mom gave me this photo, one in a series or 23, to restore or retouch. I believe it was taken in the 30's or 40's. Although it appears that noone in my family is really quite sure. It was taken in the winter in Iowa. so that is why he looks almost cut out, it's snow!

Anyhow I love this photo, but I thought it would make a good retouch submission. Clean him up.. Give him a new background. Make him better.. ect. Hope it will work. "


Challenge: Clean him up.. Give him a new background. Make him better.. etc.

Do your best to restore "Great Uncle Willard", 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

Your Uncle Willard looked like a real "sport", so I gave him a motorcycle. :-)

Added some lens blur to the background picture to give it an "older" feel with a little grain to match Uncle Willard. And sized Unlcle Willard so he appears to be in the foreground.
