Finally, please remember that this is a friendly contest and suppose to be a learning experience. Tips and suggestions to help others are highly encouraged. Also please don’t limit your comments to just the top 5 when you vote. Most members are eager for feedback about their images, so remember to help each other out.

Re: January 2009 Contest - Restoration

well, someone needs to start this off, so, here goes (and i definitely reserve the right to alter this, especially after i see all the other good works come pouring in and making mine look shabby ).

I might end up revisiting this submissions at some point. There's so much that can still be done, I never know when to stop on projects like this!

Re: January 2009 Contest - Restoration

Not quite content with this one, but if I keep going over everything I'll just make it worse, so here goes. Maybe I'll rework it, maybe I won't.

Re: January 2009 Contest - Restoration

Approximately 10 hours of work over two days on this image. Probably the most overwhelming image I have ever tackled. 16 paths and around 80 layers. Great Challenge, but I am glad it is over.
