Re: Beautiful framing

Hi. I´m really glad you... "had no intention of going this far". That´s fine.
This morning I´ve been uploading again the 1st delivered option for you.....
http://i47.tinypic.com/2jab238.jpg
..... which is the one where you could make some restoration technique observations. Eye sahpe, eye browses, hair, eye lashes are so different on your pencil marked sample. My version is sharp, yours is blured. I´ve been painting them with a 7-8 pixels brush, every eye lash hair one by one, right and left side, the same for the eye brows. Your sample´s hair is not the same on my sample. Everyone can see this, just look above the before-after sample. Did you, by mistake, blured this a little? I do not understand. Do you?
Isn´t this strange? http://i47.tinypic.com/4qr31w.jpg
The other 2 versions, floral background and framed, as I said, are client´s choice. Just versions.
Have a good night,
Florin

Florin - No I did not alter your images, just compared the before and after posted at the onset of this forum. I apologize if I offended you.

Have a good day all, sorry for commenting.

Re: Beautiful framing

No, man, nothing of this, we are all ok. The only thing I do not understand is about the blured image. You can see this too, it´s a notorious difference. That´s why I upload the 1st retouch, with the original background, which has no blured parts: http://i47.tinypic.com/2jab238.jpg
Ok, have a good day and nothing bad happened here, just talk. I don´t feel offended, please.

Re: Beautiful framing

A brand new hybrid image retouch:
http://i47.tinypic.com/33w36ko.jpg
The canvas was broken and some part missing. The clothes must look very shapen, they always are in the original hybrid pictures. The work was done with path/selections for every area. Head retouched with tle clone brush.
Cheers

Re: Beautiful framing

Restoration for archivial purposes is one thing but a restoration for a customer is completely different.
The "Restoration Ethics guidelines" -rules and regulations- are really for doing an archivial restore, but those rules do not necessarily apply to Florin or restorers that are doing these restores in an artfull manner or at the request of a "paying" customer, .. ..

Re: Beautiful framing

I don't see what the argument is about here. The image is fantastic! As a matter of fact if I was the customer, I would be adding a decent tip on top of the rate. I love it and if it was my relative in the photo I would be absolutely thrilled in the result.

And to add to that ... damn I wish I was good enough to do that. Florin! I need lessons from you!

Re: Beautiful framing

A restoration almost always requires alteration or/and reconstruction.
The question is, to what degree?

Third, I think that our friend LQQKER should made the distinction between a photography and a brushwork retouched image, a hybrid work but not a photo. Of course the hair texture is unnatural, it must be the same as it is in the client´s original image:
http://i48.tinypic.com/2ufsm15.jpg
People is paying me to have a new restored copy of the same picture but not to replace the original elements. If you don´t like the hair drawing, you should tell this to the painter, I´m only the retoucher. The same comment about the eye lashes. Maybe seems some "suspect" for you but please see the originals, are the same.
So, I thank you so much for your opinions and be sure I´ll always respect the other people comments, good or bad, they are welcome. I´m not a perfect guy, nobody is, so we always have to listen and accept the others´. Maybe the final result have some details, that´s ok. All the jobs always have some details, that´s natural.
Here I have a "bonus" image about how to restore some hair texture:
http://i46.tinypic.com/2e1al91.jpg
But, this is so different. This is a real (damaged) photo and I had to paint a real hair texture.
Cheers
I think you do fantastic job I am sure you've made a lot of people very happy and always.


cheers
