Roy, interesting PP job. Her face turned out nicer, but his looks a little odd. Still a cool picture and obviously some fun fixing it up.

Those sort of PP jobs can be very interesting and very frustrating.:?

I did one for my ex-wifes father. He gave me his German WWII ID photo, which was not very big, I resampled and enlarged it up to about 8x10. Took all the folds out and recreated one missing eye. Looked okay but not perfect by any means.

Since then I have learnt alot about PS and would do it all differently now.

I think your PP form 3 years ago was a good shot, though I would have left the image as a sepia tone rather than tryng to colourise it. Having said that I have never tried to layer a skin tone from a colour photograph over a B&W.

Couldn't resist, didn't attempt to colour it. Here is a very "quick and dirty" attempt.

I am not going to even try, I know that every one of the images posted are better than I could do. It is a neat photo Roy, it does make you think about what future generations might say about our images (by then PhotoShop LVXIII will feature "convert to 3d hologram),
