    Processing of Rescued Photos: Post yours!

    I took some quick shots regardless and hoped for the best before concentrating on sustenance and libations.




    What can a person do but try to be artistic and rescue a so/so photo that was much better in the mind’s eye than in reality?
    True, these photos are only meant for personal use. However, I always want whatever I shoot to be the best photo possible.




    Feedback appreciated.

    I rather like it how it was, but with a little repair a bit better than my futile attempt of just increasing contrast and smudging with a little yellow.

    I'm thinking of ways to do this: someone in fotki turned it into a painting but I haven't got round to it yet.

    but I did this the same way as you have started out:

    Yes, Steve I think the baby photo would make a great "painting."

    I would probably turn the bridge shot into a B&W.

    Post your reworks when they are completed.

    Cheers Epicurean; the bridge is already printed so not much point to doing that again but it looks ok in B+W, the baby, thanks for getting me to do it. I don't do art much but had a go at looking at all the arty stuff in PSE10 and in the end I used Topaz and a Gaussian blur.
