Re: Restoration Mini-Challenge 1

OK I think I've cracked the lower left mystery. Walt is wearing what we'd call a barn jacket. If you're not familiar with them I've done a fabulous <cough> line drawing for your edification. It has an underarm gusset to accommodate the inset pockets in the front. Think pea coat minus the double-breasted closure.

He's got the first two buttons done up and his hands jammed in loose fists in the pockets. What you see is his fists pushing the inside facing of the closure forward making a nice rumpled mess and if he keeps that up regularly the buttons will pop I've corrected my restore for the third and final time <g> and uploaded it at my original post.

Cheers,
MJ

Re: Restoration Mini-Challenge 1

This is my first time ever when I try to do photo restoration. Took about 1,5 hours, now need to sleep

I also tried to leave some original to the image, like the coat: its worn-out.

URL for the picture:

EDIT, after viewing your submissions - you guys are great! I'm ashamed now :P

i think you're right on this part.

i'll give you my take on it. the hands have little to do with it. remember, he's sitting down. if you notice that curl of fabric on his right, at the bottom of his coat, you may wonder why is it curling. it's from his leg. and, if i'm reading through all that dirt and smearing and fading down there, you can make out the top of his leg and possibly a knee. and that's what's pushing the coat up and causing that rolling of the fabric. best guess, anyway. i'll show what i'm talking about when i get it done.

Re: Restoration Mini-Challenge 1

oh, and welcome to RetouchPRO, jstar

no need to be ashamed. it's like anything else when you're first starting out, study, study, study, practice, practice, practice. probably one of the biggest things to learn in restorations is, what i now call the restorer's motto, 'Do no damage' that's the hard part the rest is gravy.

yup, looks right to me. the only difference in that that i see is the leg/knee part i mentioned. and that could be wrong.

ok, here's my go at it.
