slide Damage

This kodakrome slide was in saltwater for more than 48 hours! It is my moms slide that was in a hurricane back in the late 60's

Nice job done in cleaning up the image. However, in doing so you appear to have removed a lot of the detail in the beach foreground, and this removes the sense of depth which was in the original photo. Ditto the wave detail.

Thanks for the reply Gary.
I agree with you about the beach the only problem was that I could not tell what was thier on the beach and what was damage So I did what I thought was best and the easest way to go on this slide. It was more of a show thing and to practice on it is not a great photo. Just showing what can be done to somthing to make it a viewable photo again I have some more that I'm working on that I will post were when I get them done and over at fred mirandas site too.

Again thanks Gary for your reply any more info would be great
thanks Bruce

Thanks Bruce

Hi Bruce, have had a quick play with your image to replace some of the lost texture. What I did was copy and paste the original over the restored version, then applied a layer mask to hide or partially hide the unwanted parts. Finally I adjusted opacity of new layer to about 60%, and cloned out any minor annoyances that were left.

It's not a complete job by any means, but done to illustrate a technique which can be used when texture is lost.

Hi Bruce, glad I could help in some minor way.

I'm surprised you haven't got more comments from other members, but sometimes it happens that way. It won't be anything personal, and please don't take it that way.

It's just that sometimes people don't have anything constructive to add to what's already been said.

Bruce,
The colour tones on your rescue are wonderful. I feel so good looking at the image. Now if you can utilise Gary's paste over and retain the feel of the place.......
