Sorry my first attempt at uploading was too big and didn't have my user name on it ... OOPS :-) This is my first post on RetouchPro.
1. Firstly I looked at the RGB channels and I chose the green channel as it had the least stains etc in it. I discarded the others and ended up with a black and white image.
2. to remove a lot of the texture I used a gaussian blur whilst protecting the finer details with a mask.
3. I then cloned, healed and used patch to repair most of the damage.
4. I used burn and dodge to draw in a new shoe and fix up the girls leg I also used the dodge tool to remove some stains on the larger girls dress.
5. I used a hand from another photo and reduced the opacity and blurred it.
6. I used a PhotoShop action for sepia tone at 32% to get the finished look.

I really enjoyed doing this photo and being able to look at others work and reading how they achieved their results. Lots of fun :-)
