Hi Bert

There are only hints of her hair and of the pattern in the scarf. There must be even more detail hidden in the slide. You could maybe photograph the projected slide and combine exposures optimized for highlights and shadows.

Pierre

P.S: I've added a second (I hope better) version.

panpan, no offense, but that doesn't look so good.

You overly smoothed the heck out of her face, she looks like pudding face or something.

contrast is a bit much.

anyway, heres my quick attempt

there is next to nothing in her hair in terms of detail...but as pan pan said, you are going to need two exposures, one for the shadows and one for the highlights and combine them

Thank you for the feedback. I'm sorry you didn't like them. I thought I had done better with the second one.

High Contrast, Dark

Well this required a lot of painting. I copied the layer in Screen mode and with a brush lightened around the eyes etc. One probably needs to spend a lot of time with this photo to restore it properly.

Bert, what scanner are you using? I would expect a better image result from a slide.

hi caitlin
i had the scan done by a local pro
from the metadata i see it was done on a Nikon Coolscan V ED
remember it's a 25 year old colour slide in halfsize 35 mm format (forget the original format name, Olympus had these Pen EE models then)
