New Member - Restored Bridal Photo

Hello all,

Been a long time lurker here and decided to finally join this wonderful forum. I have dabbled in the photo restoration pool for the last several years. And while I find my projects at time extremely frustrating, I have really enjoyed the results. That being said, here is a photo that I have been working on for about a year and a half (gotta do it small bits at a time). It is a photo of the deceased parents of a nurse that I work with. Let me know what you think and if you have any thoughts on how to improve upon this, please feel free to let me know.

Re: New Member - Restored Bridal Photo

i like how you brought the curtain back on the left. i like how you brought contrast back. nice. i disagree with how you rebuilt the bottom edge of the dress. i'd have cloned from the right and kept that light feel there. the way you did leaves kind of a hard edge down there and it doesnt quite look right to me. all in all, a very good job.

and welcome to RP

Thanks for your input Craig. I was never truly 100% happy with the way the bottom of her gown turned out. May 'play' with it some more to see if I can soften it.
