gr gr grandfather and family - newest attempt

I have revisited this photo several times in the six years I have had it. The photo is prior to 1910 (family events date it). I have been using the spot healing brush and clone tool thus far. I am in clean up right now. No levels, curves, sat. yet. I have an adjustment curves on it right now to pump contrast. The people are on another layer. Mainly worried about house and background. Thanks for the crits.

Hi,

welcome to RP!!

I think you are doing great ... your cleaning up is coming along very nicely ... and in a picture like this it surely feels like a neverending affair ...

Hi there

You really have your work cut out. I played for an hour and did not have a lot of luck. I would be gratful if when you get it done you let us know how you went about it.

Daviskw,

Your "rendering" was great. It gave me a new perspective on the image. I have been using spot heal and clone exclusively thus far. I have been saving a new file after each major step. These PSDs are taking up 20 gigs! The PSD is 8192x6000! Thanks for the input.
