This photo belongs to a former Mother In-law. She wanted to have it restored because it was very old, worn out and had some water damage.
I have to say I am not a big time photoshop person and have never attempted to restore a photo other than in a photo class once. I found it to be very time consuming and tedious work and didn't think I would ever need the skills learned.
With that being said, I offered to try for her so that it would save her $. This is what I have now -- I realize this probably isn't the most perfect and a professional restoration person probably could have done way better, but at a first attempt - I am happy with it, especially considering what I had to work with.
I have several versions, some with an acid burn edge, different shades of b/w this is just the simpler version that I think she will want.
The man in the white shirt is her father, my children's Great Grandfather - what a treat this photo will be for them as well as her. She does not know why he was the only one in the white shirt either.
