A tough one

Here's a tough one for anyone who wants to have a go. The photo was scanned from the church handout at the funeral and seems to be the only image of Auntie Lily that anyone knows of!!

C'mon guys, I'm sure we can make it look better than it does right now.

Very nice! I like the painterly effect. Thanks for for having a go at it, I know the original is in pretty bad shape.

Here's my own attempt, I don't think I can get much better than this.

Agreed, as for pure restoration work, that is about as far as it goes.
From there on it's "artistic impression".

Re: A tough one

FM,
Your image is especially challenging since it was probably reproduced three times before your posting. That leaves little detail to work with.

Rô,
Yours is fantastic as always. No point in my trying now !

Re: A tough one

Ro, Awesome. I think this is by far the best approach for an image like this that lacks so much of the original information. It's impossible to even bring out all the hidden info, like you can with some old photos.

Excellent work, well done!
