Nov 05 Contest
Nov Restoration Challenge:

The challenge this month is to restore the photo so that it looks like a professional studio photo. This means a non-painted no-wacky-background something-a-dad/mom-would-put-on-his/her-desk-at-work portrait that actually tries to use the various retouching/restoring/compositing skills we try to promote here at RP". Questions? :dizzy:

Two versions are provided (8MB or a 1 MB)

Baby (8 MB file)
Baby_sm (1 MB file)

Photo donated by Phil (philbach) :happy:

The best way to download the images is by rightclicking (or Cmd/Ctrl clicking) on the link and using "Save Target As".

THE PRIZE A copy of Fluid Mask, donated by Vertus

2. This is not a Photo Art challenge. Keep the image as a photo.

ok, here's an early entry as i'm going to be out of town later this week and may not get back in time. i will most likely change this at some point, but if i cant i'll just live with this one.

oh, and you need to include the actual deadline time, T. you've got the voting date, but not the cutoff for entry time.


edit: replaced my first with this current one. may happen yet again :)

Not really by bag (don't like baby pics), but had to enter so I can vote. Sorry Phil, not meant as a dig at your daughter, who's really cute, rather that I don't seem to get a handle on dealing with baby pics.

Here's my entry and my first try at a contest. Used PSP9. Used clone tool for missing areas and addressed the color corrections using paintbrush in Legacy Color mode at 50%. Along with noise reducing filters and soften brush to remove scan dots.
