I had some free time, and I really liked this photo.

1. Began by changing the tone using channel mixer with monochrome selected.

2. Dodged and burned the majority of stains and "cloudiness" in the faces and mostly on the suits.

3. Use Filter>Noise>despeckle then faded to 20%.

4. Control J to duplicate layer and changed mode to Multiply. I then changed the levels opacity to about 40%. Repeated until detail came back.

5. Flattened 2 layers but duplicated new flattened layer.

6. Went into Levels and darkened until I got the back row of men looking good. I then erased the layer where the men in the front row went too dark.

7. Added a hint of color using IMage>Adjustments>variations. I like the slight browntone look.

I know I went the long way on some of these steps, but Ive been restoring pics for awhile (since 4.0) so I know I am kind of "set in my ways" when it comes to doing certain things.
