Re: Tough ones.. any chance??

Well these can be salvaged. For this correction I just did the first step. I used levels and I placed the white eyedropper on sampler two and the black eyedropper on sampler 1.

There are a number of Jpeg artifacts on this photo. So for starters I would rescan the photo and save it as a psd or tiff file.

This is the best I could do with your rescan. What do you think?

Fast touch with levels,hue/saturation,sharpen,fft filter and cloning stripes away.

Still need some hand coloration, and cloning/cleaning.

Re: Tough ones.. any chance??

I used a lot of masking & selective level (curves) adjustments.
I'm not sure how far I could go & still make it believable.
