This is my first challenge at RetouchPRO. To restore this photo I used Photoshop CS2. First I painted over the background and floor. I recreated the girls legs and the stool. Using a lot of dodging burning blurring & healing and colouring. I lassooed it and copied the subjects. I created a new background and floor and pasted the subjects into it. Finally I applied lighting affects to both layers separately.

Well I don't know about anyone else but this is the one that caught my eye. I really like what you did with this photo.

Thank you for your comment. I'm glad you like my work. I later realised that I made a few mistakes as I lack experience in photo restoration, having started only six months ago. I began practising with some simple family photos,then six more challenging ones. This has been my #17 restoration.
Recently retired, I now have the time and patience required to complete these challenges. My only fall back is that English is not my first language.
