Submitted by Jane501:

"I would like to submit the attached photo to the challenge category of “Restoration”. My mother’s cousin was going to discard the original board mounted photo because it was in such poor condition, and she couldn’t remember who the people were, or the occasion. I think it is a wedding because all the children have flowers on their head on in their hands. I have worked on this photo in sections, but have never been able to get rid of all the mold spots without doing real harm to the photo detail. Photo is from the Northeast Arkansas, or Missouri Bootheel area. "

Challenge: Restore this photo. Description mandatory

Do your best to restore "The Gathering", and post the results here using the following guidelines:
  • Make sure you're using the largest version of the Challenge photo
  • Enter your name in "Enter a title for the photo"
  • Enter the Challenge type and number in "Descriptive Keywords" (ie: "Photo-Art Challenge #501" or "Manipulation Challenge #132"
  • Include a complete description of the steps you used under "Photo Description". (You might want to write it elsewhere and paste it here)
  • Attach your file as an 800 pixel wide JPG file, compressed so that the overall file is under 200k (this usually means 60% compression).
  • Make sure you post to the correct Challenge
  • If you expect any comments for your entry, offer your comments to other entries

As always, there are no winners, no losers, no prizes, only a sharing and learning opportunity for everyone.

How you restore and how much you restore is up to you, as long as you fulfill the Challenge. Have fun, and good luck!

NOTE: As is the case for ALL RetouchPRO Challenges, there is NO expiration date on this Challenge. Even after other Challenges go up, feel free to upload your version

I have found a way to restore the whole photo. I was wondering if you could send me a larger scan of the original so I can work on a more detailed version. When I get done I will forward the results to you.

Feel free to contact Jane501 to see if she has a better scan for your own use, but the idea behind Challenges is that everyone works from the same original. Please do not send me your work, just upload it here.
