Tony's Grandad

by Bill Funk

Here's a restoration / reconstruction I did for a friend... who didn't really give me much to work with. Straight BW and sepia versions. Any comments as to which works best?

    Salut Bill! La meilleure photo d'apres moi est la derniere image a droite! Elle semble authentique a l'epoque. Beau travail de recuperation et retouche! Ricky

    Haven't tried that Pierre... I don't know if a duotone would look as authentic, but it's worth a try. Thanks for the comment!

    I think both look great. Nice job. Have you tried a duotone in the sepia direction, but with less saturation?

    You did a great job, I think both look good and it just comes down to personal preference. <br /><br /> For my part I prefer the sepia. I just think it emphasises the age of the picture and the period of the subject matter. I experimented with restorati
