My first attempt

Hi Kevin,

I am a new member and am really excited to find this forum. I have no formal training and am anxious to learn more. I hope you don't mind my making a stab at your interesting challenge.

I made a lot of adjustments, smoothed it, darkened the sky slightly to define him a bit more. Cloned out the spots. Added some darkening to his left shoulder to add some shadow. Changed levels, straightened and cropped it and added a black border to enhance the contrast and create a little more pop.

It's still too grainy for my taste, but I chalk that up to my lack of experience, something I'm hoping to remedy here at RetouchPro.

Anyway, there's my first (timid) try.

Hi Chris, Welcome to RetouchPro. A very good effort on the repair and thanks for your input. I am still working on this image. I decided that the colorized version definately didn't look good enough to give to anybody. So I am starting fresh and trying to get a better result. I don't think that this image will work well with colorization anyway. I will be lucky to get a good black and white. There just isn't any good data to work with.
