A few months ago I began to restore this photo but was prevented from finishing it because of a frozen shoulder. Only recently was I able to complete it.
I explored the use of almost every tool available, but the majority of the work was done by cloning and painting. The trees were borrowed from a couple of photos and cloned branch by branch. I am inclined to agree with the remarks of the others who have submitted this restoration that a reduction in size would destroy many details. My goal was to preserve the detail of the faces as much as possible. In order to do this I have left this photo in its original size.

It has taken me a very long time to finish this restoration, but I don’t resent the hours involved as I have always preferred quality over quantity.

Amazing restoration. The colourization leans toward folk art, but for this photo I think it works very well.

Doug I appreciate your comment very much because you have done this restoration also and understand the difficulties involved. As I already mentioned I am still painting with normal brushes and paint and therefore I feel more at ease restoring photos in colour as this is an extension of my artwork, however the computer does not allow me as much freedom as real painting would.
