So many great restorations!

I'm really new at pushing pixels with the end goal to sharpen and refine a bad photo.

Has anyone noticed that the people witessing this wedding don't seem very happy? Body language, heads down. Hmmm thoughts of losing their inheritance?

PhotoShop CS
I did a LOT of stuff and I can't remember all of it and my history palette ran out of space. Basically used Levels to lighten and adjust some colors. For the moire (which I did'nt eliminate completely) i worked in the channels layer making copies of the good ones, putting, GBluring and setting layers to various blending modes until it looked better. Smart blurred some of the skin tone areas and cloned out the clutter in the foreground.

This was tuff!!!!

Good work Swampy, as you said this was a tough one.

Like you I noticed the wedding guests.
I've never seen such a restless lot at a wedding.

Its good to see the ugly loudspeaker removed.
The only hopefully helpful comment I can make is that the brides
facial skin tone seems a little pale. Might be my monitor.
