My condolences to the family.

I didn't have an inspiration as to what might look good, so I tried a few variations. If the family would like a hi res, just let me know.

Re: >> Special Challenge - a Tribute to Julia <<

I must say that I'm very moved by the generous response to this thread. It is heartening to see the compassion and sympathy in your postings. Thank you all so very much for participating.

I have already contacted some of you for your high resolution renderings and will be following up with the remaining ones in a day or two. I hope to have them all printed and then put them in an album for the children to have in later years.

Again, thank you all so very much for your support and your kind thoughts and prayers for the family. They have needed all they can get.

Janet

Smile Re Tribute to Julia

Hello

I missed the April 30 closing date for this Special Challenge, so am posting my efforts here - along with my condolences to Julia's family, especially to young Andrew and Aurora.

I was browsing RetouchPro (amazingly, a year since the last time) and read about Julia and wanted to contribute.

These images were created from scratch - painted in Photoshop with reference to the family shots; grayscale then coloured. I hope they can be of some use to the family.

Hi Res Andrew

They are amazing YMS. Thank you very much. I will add them to the file that I was actually taking to the printer today.

Re: >> Special Challenge - a Tribute to Julia <<

I have received the higher resolution pictures from almost everyone. They look fantastic at the higher resolution. The album for the family is almost completed. Thanks to each of you for your time, your talents, and your sympathy.

A quick update: The family is slowly returning to a semblance of normality with the children's grandparents stepping up the plate to care for them while Dad works and tries to rebuild his life.

This tragedy has made me more aware of the blessings in my own life and more aware of the suffering and sorrow in others lives, and more willing to help those who need it. I hope that in some small way each of you has been touched and will be just as aware in your own lives.

Again, thank you all for your contributions and for your sympathy.

Janet
