New to restoring.. first attempt.

Hi All,

I'm new to restoring photographs but want to get into it more. Just wondering if I can get some critique of my first attempt.

Here are the two photos side by side. The first is the original, and the second is the final image.

Thanks
Geoff

Re: New to restoring.. first attempt.

Thanks guys for the vote of confidence. My techniques and knowledge in photoshop probably could have been a lot better but the advantage to using the Cintiq is you can be precise and quick at the same time. Even though there were a million things to clean up, it took no time at all on the tablet.

I hope to use this site and forum to learn better techniques and practice using the challenges etc. Perhaps down the track I'll be in a position to start my own business on the side This site will be great for my learning experience.

Cheers
Geoff
