I got the most out of the image using levels and bluring. then using apply image I started to alter the colour channels so as to get a skin colour in her face. A lot of pumping colours with adjustment layers and a pair of new eyes finished it.

Terrific restoration. Really like the soft, dark treatment and the colouring looks really good. But it's definately those eyes that make the picture, so I'm glad you didn't 'give up'.

I agree with Doug.

Out of nothing - You've made a portrait with soul.

I'm not sure what it is, but that white bit in the lower left corner, distracts a bit.
Other than that a wonderful restoration.

Cheers Steve

That white bit in the lower corner is the sleeve of her daughter's dress as this was "cut" from a family portrait taken about 1880. It is the only picture I had of her as she died in childbirth not long after this was taken. Your restoration does justice to an awfully hard picture to work on. There wasn't much detail left of her face. You brought out much of her personality. Thanks.

Yup, you certainly did a fine job here, real quality workmanship. Oh those eyes..........just wonderful.

Super restoration! This is a very difficult picture, and you've done wonders with it. The soft, subtle colors add a nice touch, too.
