Tried a whole bunch of stuff that didn't work, got really frustrated with the moire, and finally I did a basic, old fashioned airbrush job - except I used the paintbrush tool.

Just a hair of cloning in a couple of spots.
Blurred the background.
Used blur tool liberally on any remaining texture.
Vignetted corners slightly and added some noise.

I'm not really one to rate...but
I really liked how clear you got the picture to look (the guy's face especially). That is what I wanted to do and had no luck.

But I love to come here and see what wonderful jobs everyone else can do!

This is really well done. You are so good a writing tutorials. I would like to see one on using the airbrush/paintbrush on a photo similar to this.

Good suggestion, Sharon. I've actually thought of that, but painting/airbrushing is so hard to show on static images. The trick is in the brush strokes and opacity levels and in the way you layer and build up the strokes. Movement is so hard to teach in a tutorial. I'm still racking my brain for a good way to show how to do this without actually having everyone come to my house and look over my shoulder... LOL

I'll keep trying though. And thank you all so much for your very kind comments.

an absolutely brilliant job Wanda, your technique is awesome and instructive, but I am in a quandary, for these restoration challenges, where is the line between, restore, and retouch.

It really is a very fine line, Nick. I have yet to discover where it is...

Very, very nice work. You've captured the most important elements (Benny and the car) and created a studio-look that is really pleasing to look at.

A couple of things that I did notice that fall squarely under the heading of "Nit-Pik"... The right side of Benny's face seems a little "flat" and maybe the addition of a wrinkle in his cheek (like the one on his left cheek) would help. Also, there is a streak of light across his right pant leg at knee level is not consistent with the folds of the pants.

Lovely work Jakaleena!

I'm with you is wondering were that fine line between retouch and restoration lies. Perhaps in the eye/mind of the owner of the image?? [smile]

I am in awe Jakaleena. I am still to give this one a go but I fear I will never come up to the excellent and wonderful job you have done on this.

In fact I quiver at the thought of putting PS tools to it for fear of how it may turn out.
