Thanks DannyRaphael, Kraellin and saby for the improvements on the poorly taken pix.
Thanks Flora for merging the threads; that makes it easier to track any inputs.

Re: Help to restore MIL's 70th birthday pix

Here's my try. You could probably smooth it a lot more using varous methods, but it would soon become painting rather than restoring. Mostly done by layering, shifting the layer and "trimming off " the duplicate images and strengthening the desired image by painting on black masks. Cleaning up with the clone tool and a bit of sharpening and saturation using high pass and soft light layers. Attached is a 800x536 version. Let me know if you want the full sized one and I'll upload it somewhere for you.
