Apart from the sitting boy which face is too contrasted to me, looks good. however I cannot see clearly if there was any scratches or tears in the first image (smaller than the second).
IMHO you don't have to have a nice soft skin too much unless you are a model. As a "hobby" I do both restorations and retouchs and I barely soften the skin in the restorations. Or, just to alter some noise or to even the texture after the use of the stamp tool (more likely median blur on a SO with a blending mode). HTH.

The original is the big one... The smaller one has been cleaned up... I've tried to remove some noise... and restored the left ear... I've played with curves, levels...

"The sitting boy which face is too contrasted"... which photo ? The big one or the smaller one ?

Thanks !

Ah sorry! Usually one provides the 1st one as the original, and the second one as the touched up, seems more logical...(as well as a sensible name such as "2 frères before" and "2 frères after"). Now the after seems too soft, you might find something in between. A basic level adjustment and basic sharpening filter gives that image. HTH.

I like the original colors, so kept them.
Liked the border, so kept it.
Did not see much to restore, so didn't.

Original is faded, so used Fade Correction.
Something about the photo I like, but goes
away once the colors are removed.

Go figure!

I took a look at the channels in cs4 and found the red channel looked pretty good so I used that and made a levels adjustment and got this, the boys look pretty good but I don't care for the frame too much. now from this point you could tone it if you like sepia
