Time for a bit of fun.

I've been admiring the work of Maggie Taylor, recently. So I thought we could try her techniques and have the best of restoration, retouching, and compositing, along with some humor and whimsy and quite a bit of artistic expression.

Your final image must be in color, but consist entirely from pieces of old (pre-1920) black and white images.

Some reference material:
Maggie Taylor's website:
A great source for old images:
And don't forget our own Archive:

Challenge: Have fun compositing and colorizing old photos. Description mandatory

Do your best to restore whatever you find, 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
