Had a go at an old pic, no idea who they are!

Hello everyone

My first post here, I don't normally get asked to restore pics but I thought I'd have a go anyway, let me know (good or bad) what you think?

Lee,
Welcome to RetouchPro. I think it's a very good restore. As with most, the number of things you can fix never ends. So, it's simply up to you where you would like to stop.

A few small things you may look at:
- some tell-tale signs of cloning in the clouds, above the ladies head.
- a little bit of tonal issues where that big crack was on the mans leg.
- a possible accidental clone of a crack along the mans sleeve, at his elbow.

Other than that, I like your results.

I like what you have done.
A little more lighten/darken brush strokes along the man's pants/boots.

Overall, it's a beautiful restore that stays true to the original photo.
