from CathyH's recent entry:

I have spent way to much time on this, and I still don't like it.
boy, do i know that feeling. i started over again last night and may replace my current entry. this is one of those maddening pictures where the light is both too bright and too dark and there's just enough detail to know what shld be there in places, but just enough missing in key locations to drive you nuts. i fudged quite a bit on the first attempt and in re-doing i've gotten some areas better, but now others are worse. lol. i strongly recommend folks never go into the restoration business; you'll be bald and depressed in no time

Swampy
You may want to resize your pic. I think it should be bigger.

shalford and swampy, it may just be my browser acting up, but i think your images are the wrong size. hate to see anyone disqualified for something like that.

peterS, actually, my picture is here on retouch...somewhere. i've still got my hair and prettier than ever

Modesty is one of your finer points.

Warning!

Quote:
3. Tasks:
* Final image must be exactly 800 px wide and 583 px high
Swampy,

the size of your restoration appears to be wrong ... (600 x 437 px) ... Please, check and correct your entry to avoid being disqualified.

Thanks.....

Hi everybody!

Great entries so far ....

... A real killer this one eh?? ...

Out of curiosity I only tried to 'brighten' the darkest parts of the picture .... and realized that, no matter what I did, I wasn't going to be satisfied with the results ... meaning ... this is what I call a 'compromise' picture ... But still a great example and exercise ground for what we could get as 'real life' job request!!! ...

Looking forward to many more entries, I've put up the contest images posted so far (in order of date posted) in this Gallery for easier viewing and comparison...

flora, that's a nice gallery format. is that something you made or is it a pre-packaged type thing?

also, please note, i've updated my entry. please update the gallery. (sorry, not trying to give you extra work)

as for compromise, yes, with areas blown out in the black there is no choice. details are just lost and there's no other way but to fudge a bit here and there. a distinctly difficult challenge.
