Re: First restoration advice

I'm a little surprised at the client's want and the final results there of.
Thanks for sharing!

Re: First restoration advice

Probably way too late for critique on this one, but might help in the future if you have clients with similar desires (that *was* a strange one!). The final composite looks like a cutout placed on a photograph of a house. Edges of the cutout are sharp, but edges on its interior are soft. Tonality in the house photo is much different (more contrasty) from the cutout, and its focus is sharper. The light is from the front on the people, but high in the sky on the house. But if the client was happy . . .

Thank you for the feedback!! Very useful
I know this was a strange request but she hated that living room and wanted wiped it off.
Originally I tried to address some of the issues you mention but could not achieve it with my still limited technique

BTW, the "client" was my wife... I find it harder to deal with family.

Re: First restoration advice

Aahh, yes! Dealing with family can be tricky, but in many cases they can be more appreciative than 'real' clients. And worry not - your technique will improve with practice.
