Talking Using the Red Channel

Well I first looked at the channels and then selected the red channel 100%. That eliminated most of the problem.

Next used the healing brush

Finally used neat image to remove texture

Wink An unexpected twist in the Serious Twins saga...

keiser, I'm happy you enjoy it. I like the texture and the faded frame. Very clean results also. Please, read the next comment...
philbach (and everybody on the thread), thanks for the tips, looks smooth and clean. I have only a concern but happily it brought something important to my attention: that weird little eye in the fatter twin (the one at left). That made me check again the original and the other versions and as a matter of fact you can see the same problem but less noticeable. Finally I was able to return to the original paper copy and discover the problem: the photo is broken (sorry for my limited English I know is not the perfect word), ok, broken just through this eye. Actually, the red stain follows the broken (or whatever) path. The photo was just put together with tape fairly well. Now, the good thing is, it adds a new challenge to the repair: to fix the eye. By the way, I know this guys and are perfectly normal, not weird eyes at all. Don't know about a temporary medical condition (i.e. a punched eye). That eye have problems in size, height, orientation and brightness, I think. Sounds like an interesting study on the human face. Stare first on the other twin and then on this and you'll sense something is wrong with his sight. Please, give your opinion.
Blessings.

His Right Eye

Well I looked at your original and saw that the cut does go through the inner side of that persons right eye, but I don't think it distorted the eye. Enclosed is the original picture just using the red channel. So I think that when the picture was taken his right eyelid was drooping some for whatever reason.

Re: Red stains in B&W twins photo

Yes, philbach, maybe is just that, the sun in his face from that side. I was thinking about a past thread about correcting the orientation of somebody's eyes (not this case but maybe interesting to see what they did), I'll make a search... Thanks.
