Re: Newbie Nees Help w/ Badly Water Damaged Photo

I believe if you will look up "mardi gras indians" at youtube then you will be pleasently suprised and just may find what you are looking for.

I 'think" the regalia you are looking for is in this vid around the middle:

Wow, I thought I was the only one to find challenges as such!
I have no idea of what it is supposed to look like in the background. I couldnt find any reference what so ever.
Ah, looks like such a nice photo too!

moonchild64 - Thank you very much. I will take a look at the video (and perhaps others on youtube) as soon as possible. I've been looking at stills only, thus far, didn't think about videos, actually! Appreciate the tip.

Hi Learninlady - Yes, what a challenge, huh?! Looks like you started to clean this up nicely but, your're right, you really cannot tell what's in the background. I "think" that the photo was actually taken during some sort of a parade so there may be others also in costume in the background. I'm pretty sure that I'm going to try to extract the subject (and regalia) from it entirely and make/use my own plain background, though. If possible...! Thanks VERY much for your post and for taking a look/swipe at this!
