Not really good at using advanced tools so here goes...

- Greyscaled to remove yellow discoloration
- Reapplied sepia toning effect
- Repaired damaged areas using a bunch of cloning
- Fixed left hand guy shoes (borrowed & tweaked)
- Left in as much original detail as possible
- Sharpened final result to bring out details

I uploaded it earlier, but wasn't happy with my first attempt with the left hand guy's shoes.

Used Paint Shop Pro 9.

Good to see everyone did things a little differently from each other. I am still learning.

Nice work Stargazer.
It's amazing how many little imperfections you find when you start looking in this pic, Just a question, i know everyone is leaving them there but the bricks look a little too course to me to have chalk on them, "The asterists on the far left"
I dont know, i thought they we're on the photo?

Thanks Toe! - Good work on your effort too! I was tempted to try a bit of colorization as well, but it's something I'm even more amateur at since I only tinker with editing photos and don't have much technical knowledge of using the tools that could save time or achieve a more uniform result. For now it's mainly manual manipulation. 8-)

Yep, I wasn't entirely sure either about the ****'s, they looked like some sort of early graffiti and the fact everyone else seemed to leave it in..... when in Rome I guess.

Did you notice the baby in the far-right window? Peaking above the covering on the lower window?

I wasn't sure if anyone was still submitting anymore comments on this challenge anymore since it's the previous one, great to have feedback.

Regards,

SG.

Outstanding. Gosh, I never noticed the little girl in the window. Now I feel sorry for her being inside and looking out at the people having their picture taken. Nice job on the guys shoe.

Hi PCmouse,

Thanks for your kind comments, unfortunately one PC mouse expire in the making of this restoration..... there were just sooooo many clicks taken to repair the damage to this photo.... well, in my opinion anyway 8-)

Yes, the little girl missed out on being in the foreground of this photo, I almost didn't see her either, I have the much larger original I worked on and she's very clear in it.

Haven't had the time to do many other pictures lately.... too busy.

Thanks again.

SG.

Hi Stargazer,
I think that you did an excellent job at restoring this photo! I have never restored anything yet but I've been lurking to learn about the process. I'm enjoying looking at everyones work.
