I decided to leave the wall surfaces rough and a few spots and scratches in place. Combined with the platinum paper tone it looks more like an old photo that survived a little bit better than your original.

I desaturated the image to almost black and white, adjusted contrast with several soft light and screen blending layers. Some sharpening with a high pass filter and lots of reconstruction with the heal and clone brushes.

Finally added some grain and re-toned to a platinum brown.

I would like to thank you to everybody who has given me input on this picture.

This is my first restoration and without the forum and all the posters input i wouldnt of been able to do it.

So here is my attempt at the restoration and would love any comments on wether it is good or bad

thanks
steve

I think you've done a great job! You've brought out some detail but it still shows its age.

Spot on Steve. I can only echo what Heather said: you have kept it true to its age. Importantly, you haven't oversmoothed it. I like the crop too. I think someone would be very happy with that restoration.

Sincerely Syd
