So happy to have managed to save a piece of family history,
This very sad and very badly damaged photo came to me all the way from Great barrier island. This is a great street scene from Auckland back in the 1950's. A lot of creative thinking was needed to recreate all the missing pieces. I used the stamp and healing brush in Photoshop to fix most of the damage another few layers of dodging and burn curves and contrast adjustments and we had recovered most of the missing areas.
