Re: Restore Project needs Help

that last one is in pretty bad shape, tom. i couldnt really find a lot of detail. either the resolution was too low on the scanner or the original picture was exposed too much or the picture was damaged too much over time. did the best i could with channel mixer, a brightness/contrast adjustment layer, a curves adjustment layer and a color balance adjustment layer. i also did a little bit of cloning on the black specks. these seemed to be more dust than part of the picture.

Craig, believe me when I say that when you look that monster in the eye, it does look and feel, just like that. It was not courage, but ignorance.
Well done, A+, Tom

Craig, I sent 2 Emails: 1st is the film you mentioned, followed up with the 12 pg Narrative, which explains the how and why. Only thing I received, were the slides (their throw outs) and some great memories. Will resend if need.
This was but just one, of my many harrowing flight tales. 60 yrs ago when I started flying, the planes and helicopter did not have the power to do the ordinary things that today's small/light aircraft are capable of.

Glade you enjoyed it, thought you would, and it will make the slides more interesting as you see them.
Tom

Re: Restore Project needs Help

tom,

i havent been down to the other house where that email is for over a week now. maybe i can run down there tomorrow.

actually, i was teasing you a bit about flying over an active volcano. i could see doing that for a great shot. i'm just not sure how much courage i'd have with lava flying up at my face

and thanks
