Pheeeeew! there was some heavy duty cloning and toning here.
The faces were tough going. There wasn’t enough detail in the drivers
face, so I had to draw his eyes, nose and mouth. Hope it looks ok.
In the original photo the car was level but the background
was sloped upwards. So much so that I thought it detracted
from the look of the restoration. Straightening the background
made this more of a reconstruction rather than a restoration.
But I was happy with the look of the straightened background.
This was hard work. I seemed to spend ages cloning, patching and
cutting and pasting. I don’t know how long I spent on this restoration.
But it must have been at least 4 hours.
