I did a guassian blur with mask and painted out most of the small cracks before cloning. This produced a bit of a rough texture for the siding and window trim. After clean-up, I did desat and autolevel. Applied neat image filter with mask and painted in sharpness on some facial features.

Excellent work. You've been able to make the picture more realistic than it looked originally!

Thank you freelancer. Lots of good detail to work with in this one in spite of the crackle. Hats off to everyone who restored the whole darn thing - yikes!

Great work Doug,

Leaving out the neighbor and close cropping has given
this restoration a well balanced look.
Especially good work on the lady, she was badly damaged.
Wish I'd done it this way instead of spending hours
repairing the old houses in the background.

Matt

Thank you Matt. When I zoomed in and saw all that crackle, it was crop or cut bait. You did a wonderful job on yours by the way.

Nice work Doug as usual. Cropping is definately the way to go with this one. I just took one look at all those cracks and ran. But even with a cut down image, that's still a lot of work and I'm impressed.

Thanks Gary. Apart from laziness, I close cropped because it sounds like there weren't many photos left of Mr. and Mrs. Ellis. (We've got a nice little album started here though, with plenty of different pics)
