First try at an actual restoration...

...boy, was this tough! I feel like I could do anything now!! Thank you for a wonderful opportunity to learn by trial and error. I'm embarrassed to admit how many hours I spent on this....the proportions are a little (just a little) funny because I was all but finished with the picture when I realized there were size constraints in the contest requirements. It didn't look so looooong before I resized it

This is a tough one. I don't know if I can squeeze more detail out somehow but my idea was to try and make it look newer... the "as if it were shot yesterday" part stuck in my head. I'd really like to see more detail in the baby's hands and face but I just don't think I can do it convincingly.

well, this probably gets me disqualified per the rules, but i just couldnt see a 'great shot' with leaving half a head in there. now, technically, if you REALLY strain the rules, i didnt 'alter the subjects' by leaving one out. they just arent there, but they arent altered (and if you buy that, i've got some property in florida i'd love to sell you).

at any rate, i just went my own way and did it up like i thought it shld be done. if it disqualifies, then it disqualifies me... c'est la vie!

and Ro, we need to have a talk about this sadistic side of you... i like it!

wow--a professional photographer overcome with fatherly bliss and unable to focus the camera maybe (LOL). a tough one to say the least-- all you can do is try to take the focus off that half head! This is the first version I tried on the day the contest was posted, and after 3-4 other versions, I am back around to this one. Nice work everyone.

Exceptionally great work everyone.

palomino had four versions. I was up to six when I said enough is enough.

My final version isn't great. But this contest was worth the effort to try to restore Ro's baby.

Since I had started working on this picture, a beautiful boy appeared to look a little bit sarcastically, like he was watching for my useless effort to fix something. And poor Mom, she can't see at all, she has no eyes...

Lot's of good work everyone.
Not sure which version this is :o)
