Finally finished

I have finally finished the 30 piece estate photograph restoration job.
I'm of course not happy with it, but know in my heart of hearts I could work on those photos for the remaining years of my life and never be completely happy.
Heres one of the simpler photos as I have posted all the (not really there were more.) more difficult ones.
Hope everyone is doing well and changing the world pixel by pixel.

Re: Finally finished

I know this is not your fault but the lack of sharpness of the front shoe bugs me. It should not be out of focus.

As for the rest of it, top notch.

Good job,

Re: Finally finished

Ah haha. You and me both! I did everything I could, but all efforts made it worse, can't fix what the photographer messed up sometimes.
I even did a search of someone elses shoe to replace it, but it just wasnt working.
That's was one of many for an estate I did. And she wasn't so much interested in perfections as such, just wanted to see her families faces.

Re: Finally finished

I had a search through:
http://www.cartes.freeuk.com/
and just searched for old shoes...lol
but finding the same shoe, or even changing the shoes all together didnt work for me. so I left it as is. I even tried to sharpen just that area and it still looked odd

Re: Finally finished

It looks great and the blurred shoe/leg bugs me too. I copied it and run it with Nik Sharpener 3.0 and it helped it considerably. May you could try the demo version on it and form your own opinion.
