Re: Father's photo

Hi, had a go on the larger one. Tried the smaller one later on, worked mostly on the glasses.

Hi MiningArt
Thank you very much. How did you manage to get his eyes clear. I think that was what I was having problems with -his eyes and ears.
Thanks again

First I picked the two channels with the most detail and merged them. Then reconstructed elements using cloning and ironing. Worked with a copy using levels to concentrate on details, added a small amount of fine grain overall to this copy. These two were then overlain with the reconstructed copy having precedence, about 60/40. At the end I changed the focal point to the clearest eye, the one on the left. Some of the unconnected added grain was removed during the focus routine, this added a small amount of detail. It helped some I think because the eyes are close to a golden ratio line. I had the most trouble with the ears, tried at one point to clone the whole right ear to use as the left, but gave up and just pixel edited it a bit. (note: artists view left-right)

Thanks MiningArt
I did not understand what a 'golden ratio line' is. Thank you for the explanation.
Regards

Re: Father's photo

Sorry MiningArt - what did you mean about a 60/40 preference?
Thanks

'I did not understand what a 'golden ratio line' is.'
Just do a Google on, Golden Ratio, it will explain it far better than I can. Basically the eyes have a natural tendency to focus on certain parts.
'what did you mean about a 60/40 preference'
When merging the two layers it is the opacity/transparency of each. The resulting image will be a combination of the two accordingly.

Just using the cloning and healing brushes with a little noise removal and some levels corrections seemed to help a little and like Tommy said I used the large pictures glasses, flipped for the shadows and Free transformed to fit on the smaller pic (should have added some noise.. but I figure you can do that)
