Had a quick go at the pic but struggled with it .... :rolleyes:
It seemed to me that parts of the original image had moved about. The lady's left shoulder (right in the image by the ladder) looked too wide to me so I've moved her shoulder to where I think it should be ... maybe it would look better with most of the counter cropped off ....:)

Nice work on the face, Jonob, but we seem to have lost some focus on the shoulders and below. I used to do a bit of this, but my eyesight is not good enough now. So, not trying to be critical, but just wondering how it came about. But both you and Phil were brave enough to try and have made a vast improvement to the original.

Well, where to start? the picture supplied is, as well as severely damaged, not a scan but a photo of a a photo taken lain on the floor (carpet), at an angle and at 72dpi. The part that is out of focus was badly damaged and appears to be spattered with paint so the easy thing was to blur the offending parts, apart from that it was a piece of cake, regards, John.
