Operation Photo Rescue (A Doozy)

One of the first pictures that I did for OPR was of this girl when she became a woman..... I saw this the other day in the galleries and had to ask.

Re: Operation Photo Rescue (A Doozy)

definitely an interesting one. but i've got to wonder here what the folks at OPR are doing. this one really looks like it could have been cleaned and then scanned. (well, scan first, just in case, but then cleaned and scanned again). it looks like it's just got a bunch of dirt or dirt/water markings and a decent cleaning might have made this job a lot easier.

If you can do this one you will have no trouble leaping over tall buildings at all.

Galleries: There is a gallery set up on Photoshelter.com for the volunteers of OPR to look through images that need restoring. When a member finds an image that they want to work on they leave a comment.

Good luck Candy, it is definitely a doozy, but I am sure you will once again rise to the challenge.

Re: Operation Photo Rescue (A Doozy)

Ooo Oooo Oooooo I missed a purse? WOW, now I've got to go back and look see!!!

Ahhhhh, there it is. Do you think she has a veil on? Look at the arms. The rectanglar object on the arms might be a veil... Hmmmm LOL

It's late and I think I'm going batty!!

Re: Operation Photo Rescue (A Doozy)

Let's she how she looks here. I could have cleaned up the background and did, but then it looked a bit overdone since I didn't know what the original looked like through the water stains, so I opted to clean it up by using a portion of the background, created a pattern, and lowed the opacity of the new to allow just a bit of the old to show through. Not overpowering but not shiny and new either. For me it worked. Someone else on RetouchPro spotted the purse and I spotted the veil. So far.... so good?

Klassy, I just took your photo and added levels to it and changed the skin color some.

Re: Operation Photo Rescue (A Doozy)

Looks just a tad pinker on my screen so I think I'll shoot for somewhere inbetween (for my computer) and that should just about do it.

Thanks Phil. You are always appreciated. BTW, how is NebGranny?

Attached is the newly colorized photo. She is going home.
