cedwar,

you've done a great job on a difficult image. you've got a lot more detail back in the eyes. the left eye could use a little more work. use the right eye as a model for it. you've also got a lot of those white streaks/lines/noise. those could be cleaned up a bit, either cloned over or blended in or maybe a neat image treatment, though that may lose some of the detail again, so, maybe not.

all in all, i think you've got all the detail you're going to get back, so it's clean up time and reconstruct time. the eye and dress are the obvious reconstruct issues and then the streaky white on the clean up.

but a fine job so far.

Craig

When you say clean up time... do you mean something other than the reconstruction? Im wondering if its possible to make the "blotchy"ness go away.

cedwar,

when i say 'clean up' that's what i'm talking about, getting rid of the graininess and blotchiness. you can try Neat Image or simple tools like clone and smudge and push or even a soften tool if you have it. go very lightly; you dont want a lot of streaking. you just kind of want to smooth and blend things a bit.

and cassidy, i've no idea what you're talking about.

Craig

Writing an L Channel curve only doesn't do such a bad job by itself. I basically brought the end points in towards the middle to steepen it quite a bit. No retouching though.
