Grandad Restored

by Kevin Gilmartin

We found this photo on Janice&#39;s mum&#39;s PC when I went round to fix the internet connection a few days ago.<br /><br />We think it&#39;s Janice&#39;s grandad but we&#39;re not sure yet, I decided to touch it up a bit just in case; it&#39;ll be a nice surprise for the future mother-in-law!<br /><br />Critique welcomed, as always. Please view full size to see the extent of the restoration.

    Thanks guys.<br /><br />Yeah, you're right Dani - now that I look at it with fresh eyes the restored image is a bit unfocussed on the face. Not sure how that happened, unless I forgot to de-select the face when I applied a very slight <i>Dust and Scratche
