Hi Christine,

Your restoration is really wonderful.As in the former two
restoration's each has something to offer in the way of an
very close likeness of the person being restored.You were
able to restore teeth.Also it is different being in a colorized
If I can get as close to the restoration as you did I'll
be very happy.I can see that you've put in lots of work on
I know my problem with the project is that although I do
know how to use many of the techniques using PS, I don't
know enough.Every time I go about restoring this picture
it turns into a cartoonish efffect.
I have ordered Katrin Eisen's book and it should be in my
mailbox today.I have lot's to learn with restoration methods.
Up to now my only experience has been restoring some
crack's and tear's in some photo's that are B&W.I then enjoy
colorizing them.
I welcome any input on what techniques are used to restore
this photo in what I feel is a very difficult task.

Thank you so much,

Thankyou for the welcome Margaret.

Joseph, Sorry I did not make notes while I was working on the picture but did use some airbrushing on the dress and large areas of damage after sampling colours nearby, cloning, patching and healing of course.

For the background I selected the lady and copied to a new layer when I was happywith the results. Then created the background by applying a radial blur to the non- cut out layer followed by distort/ocean ripple.

Looking at it again I feel the jaw line has too much shading so I may redo this part.

Try as I might, I can't get close to Flora's shading and bringing out subtle contours of the nose, jaw line, etc. Are there any tutes or tips on how to do this? Well, Flora?
