There is some nose art here that I think is very similar to what Thin Girl was.

Re: Help with over exposed image

Very nice job crazyfly1.
Until I saw your image I had totally missed the girl thinking that this was just stains or similar on the aircraft

As stated if you can get hold of the original neg then a scan at a higher resolution will help retain detail. Also it may be worth scanning twice - once for the overall density then a seperate scan for the art work. These could then be combined in PS to get the best image

Re: Help with over exposed image

Thanks Crazy and Tony. I will work on getting the original and then if you don't mind I would like to make contact with you again. My question for now is if I get the negative where would I take it to get the scans done per your suggestions.
If you want to see some beautiful nose art work check out our website. Most of the art work , like the Thin Girl, was done by Sgt Lynn Trank. Look for the Casimir Gardocki collection, he was the guy who took all the photos. The Capt, William Schaeffer, who flew the Thin Girl has a small photo collection in the archive section as well.

Again much thanks to you guys for your help. I actually found some video's on line that explained layers and masks so I'm a little more knowlegable

Re: Help with over exposed image

Thank you Tony.
Avibuzz, yep, that's the way to do it. Watch training videos and play with photoshop and you'll get better at it. There are a lot of great tutorials posted here http://www.retouchpro.com/forums/rp-tutorials/

I think I would take the negative to a wolf camera to have the scans done. Ask for the manager and take a copy of the photo you have now with you to show what you are looking to improve.
Of course, anytime you have a question come on back.
Thank you for the link I'll take a look!

Re: Help with over exposed image

Thanks to your help looks like the over exposed image of the nose art “Thin Girl” was instead the “Junior Miss” (see photobucket link) . Found an image of that aircraft in another members photo album but, as in the case of the thin Girl image, it is was over exposed. Any chance I can have you guys to work your skills and see if we get a better idea of the art work with this image?

These are two collages we have done with more of the squadron’s nose art

Re: Help with over exposed image

I just used HDR to bring out the nose art. I can say for sure that she's nekid. lol But there just isn't any info beyond her waist. Not even enough to make an educated guess. Someone else may get better results but this is all I could come up with.
