This is my first posting of a photo here at RP. I have been doing photo restoration for about a year using Photoshop however every thing I have learned to date has been self taught. Consequently I have some bad habits like not using layers nearly enough so please feel free to blast me about that. This particular picture seemed like a great challenge. After using the cloning tool for several hours and salvaging what I could I decided that my picture would not have the gent on the left in the picture so away he went. As you can see I replaced him with a gas pump. Of course if my customer had stated he was someone of note I would have left him in the picture. I then turned to the task of getting the levels corrected and started on the car restoring wheels etc. Oh the sign was just one I found on a site and thought it added a little to the picture or did it? Anyway after getting things in shape I thought the wheels still didn't look right on the ground so I obscured them with some foliage. Then came the question to colorize or not. I chose to do it but left it very soft. Then I added some fill light to the overall picture to give it some punch. That's about it --- and as I said if I used 3 layers that would be an exageration. I am glad I found this site that will get me using layers and on the right track to proper techniques. Bad habits are hard to break.
