restoring a severly faded and damaged image
thanks to gary for sending me off in a better direction!! it really helped
ok, fire away!
You can see the original here
Nice try on what was a quite difficult image. IMHO the dress is a little dark and "solid" for such a soft image, but this is just a judgement call.
What I often do with an image like this, if I have the luxury of time, is to put it to one side and not look at it for a while, then come at it with fresh eyes.
It's often difficult to know when to stop. When you've been working on an image for a long time, you get a sort of tunnel vision, and keep looking to make improvement, when you've probably already got all that can be got out of the picture.
Glad I could help a little, good luck with your future restorations.
i agree with you on the dress gary, it's one of those things i ummed and ahhed at the time. i guess i was trying to bring some depth to the image.... if that makes any sense.
there's a few things that bugg me about the image but i'm out of ideas on how to make it better. i just hope i haven't taken away her true features by pulling them out by hand.
if no one else has any suggestions, i'll show her the image and ask if she's happy with it (the lady in the image). after all it is her, so i'm sure she'll tell me if she doesn't like something about it.... well, i hope she does.
thanks for your input gary
