Here is what I have after doing a MAJOR de-dusting and de-black-stuff-ing...

Anyway, what do you think of it so far? Where would you go from here? I'm going to work on it myself, but I always welcome help and ideas.

Re: Found OLD picture. Where to start?

Thanks Timmy
It was mostly Healing brushes and clone brush, then noise reduction (A little loss of detail due to small file size) plus adjusted levels and a little D&B in places. I did USM as well but I think I overdid that a little.

I'm new to all this, Still Learning. This is a Great Site to Learn.
First I increased the dpi, Desaturated,ran an Unsharp Mask, Despeckled to get rid of most of the noise. Applied healing brush and cloning tool, Had to copy the left foot, flipped it to create the right foot. Merged all layers. Then I colored Him.

Re: Found OLD picture. Where to start?

That was wonderful! I am still working on it as time allows, which is not nearly enough. I will keep in mind your coloring scheme!

I guess my vision isn't finely tuned to "sharpness" because every time I try to sharpen an image, I can't tell the difference between the original and sharpened one. Maybe I'm just looking at the wrong thing.
