Thanks for the eyes Debbie. It made things so much easier.
I did a cut and paste and position. Then free transform to size.
Since this is an outdoor shot I reduced the shadows
around her eyes and blended skin tones to match.
Just hope this is something like you looked 17 years ago.

The hands were very hard to restore.
I spent as much time on them as I did on her face.

I used the De-crack action on the background and clone repaired.
Also toned down some of the blown out highlights.

The uniforms were very hard work. I really struggled with them.
I just cloned and burned and hoped it would look ok.

Wonderful effort Matt! Here's a filter that may help folks with the camouflage or not, a good selection!

Thanks for the camouflage filter Neve,
I've been playing with it. It has plenty of
color options and is adjustable. Definitely a keeper.

Great job Matt! Your restoration of Debbie's face (eye import, shading and detail) is amazing. Hands and fatigues pass muster too.

Thanks for the comments Doug,
I wasn't very enthusiastic about this restoration.
I have no idea if the eye transplant gets close
to her appearance when this was taken.

Nice work on everything, Matt.

Her face, the uniforms and boots look fantastic.
