How about a "pass the restoration" with proceeds going to RetouchPro?

What if someone takes Duv's or Flora's worthy effort, adds some more effort and passes it on?

If the final version is accepted, the proceeds can benefit us all.

Just a thought.

Flora about how long did the restoration take you? Nice job. I'm afraid at my skill level I'd be making pennies per hour...

Not a bad idea for a case like this ... ... The one drawback I see in it, is that for making it possible you should pass along a 50MB PSD file (such is the size of my final restoration!!!)

As usual Flora, your's is fabulous! Smart move in cropping it down. How much time did you put into it?

Cheers
Duv

Thank you very much! ...
I don't know exactly how long it took me to restore this picture since I didn't work on it in one go .... I'm usually very slow ... but being a hobby .... well... I don't mind how long it takes ....

Hi Duv,

...we seem to keep on "cross-posting" ....

Thank you so much for your words!

As for how long it took me.... I'm sure you know by now, from my answer to Gary...

To Everyone,

Duv, are you the one that uploaded the file Dave-corner.tif? I think so - that's why I thought your name was Dave, sorry.

Flora, once again your work sickens me. It's too good. I don't think you know photo restoration at all, but instead use your time machine to travel back in time and take the photo again... that's cheating!

I think I'm going to have to go with Flora on this one. The only thing I can 'complain' about it is that the wall seems to continue off at a different angle after the laundry...

Flora, I'll have my upload program changed to allow PSD uploads in the future, but for now, you could try renaming it to a .jpg, then uploading it. When I download it, I will simply rename it to .psd, and we will see if that works.

Please let me know once you've uploaded it (I receive no confirmation when it's uploaded).

If the client likes it (she will, I'm quite certain) and once I show it to her (should be within this week), I will make the donation to RetouchPRO. Your guys' loyalty to the site is amazing!

Duv & Flora, excellent job! I can't imagine how the customer would not be happy with what you've done.

Excellent indeed..
I can make the exisiting photo look pretty good but the reconstruction has me somewhat baffled. Looks like Flora borrowed a hand from the lady in the center of the photo.

Duv and Flora do you have any hints on how you did this?
