Haha Eric, while yours is quite good, I should reserve my pick awhile longer. They seem to keep coming. I am astonished at the number of people who have answered this call, and am humbled. Thank you again.

Thanks, Jeff. I see you live in Niceville. I thought you lived here, for some reason. You could go to the beach and get some really good shots to post, I'm not sure about sports around there..

Hawgwild, I'd like to take a crack at this with a different tactic.

Would you have another picture of your head at about that angle? I'm thinking it could be used to superimpose over some of the cleaned up images to restore the contours of the left side of your face in that photo. One without the beard would be ideal to get the corner of your mouth in it, but even just the eye, brow, and cheekbone would make the restoration look a lot more natural IMHO.

Hate to change the picture that much, but the detail's been lost, and I don't draw well enough to put it back by hand.

I've done overlaying and photografting before, but nothing like this, so it should be interesting.

Default My first crack at it

As I poked at this image, I realized that the chemical lines are only one or two pixels wide in the key area - Hawgwild's face. So I set the clonestamp tool down to one pixel by one pixel and sampled the row of pixels immediately above or below a given line (magnification was my friend) and got a lot of the chemical lines out completely. I then magic-wanded selected the rest of the chemical lines and desaturated them so they're not the only color in a black and white image. I used the clone tool a little more broadly on the chemical lines through their legs and on the sky.

Something I've learned about retouching over time, is that what your eye will forgive/ignore varies depending on the image. I've buried a lot of manipulations in what look like JPG artifacts that way. In this case, in an old, small, black and white image, a few scratches don't detract from it, and for me at least, the eye just edits them out, far more than it does areas that are too smooth or look retouched.

Oh yeah. I /added/ a bit of noise to make everything blend together better.

Yeah, that problem occurred to me. That's why I took a stab at it with the data that was there.

As for the time machine, I wouldn't think so. Your upper face doesn't change so much.
