Firstly I must say I have used Gradient Masks, as it seems to be acceptable to other entrants.

First I created a Black Fill Layer, and a Radial Gradient Mask.
Then a second Black Fill Layer with a Vertical Reflected Gradient Mask.
A third Black Layer with Horizontal Reflected Gradient mask.
I then copied the Background, and moved it 1 pixel down. Set Blend to Darken at 50%.
A copy of the copied layer was made, and moved 1 pixel down.
A third copy made and moved 1 pixel down.
Image was now flattened, and a levels adj. layer added.
Finally image was sharpened using USM.

This is very interesting. The same procedures described by ajcutler in the previous post with an equally commendable outcome but subtle differences. The mouth in your restoration gives the judge a rather defensive appearance, like things have got a little beyond him. In ajcutler's submission the judge looks more intimidating, like he's ready to pass a pretty serious sentence on the photographer.

Thank you, yes, I did follow AJ's technique somewhat, but varied it by using multiple layers and shifts to get rid of the scratches. I think it's this that softened the mouth of the Judge a little.
