Excellent restore. Really like the sky, shingles and tree. Most of all though you've done a great job recovering the tone and contrast that had washed out of the original. Lots of patience and no shortcuts evident. The only thing that doesn't look quite right to me is the cocky angle of pop's hat. I like this version best as you're b&w looks way more b than w on my monitor.

Thanks Doug, ive been a bit slow with getting back into this forum, i had a slow patch due to busy lifestyle, namely busy at work then made redundant and finally my kitchen being stripped out and put back in again. The hat is one of my niggles too. I guess building things with just the clone and heal and dodge and burn tools isnt always the best way to do things. I just added the my version of the restoration Challenge 92, i would appreciate your commenst on this too. many thanks Doug.
