When Lance brought me this sad looking photo from his companies offices for restoration, it had almost disappeared! For some unknown reason the original photo had all of the background removed.
Something from nothing much.
So a lot of Photoshop retouching was needed to replace the background insert a new sky, houses, wires, telegraph poles and walls. The original photo photo also had been hand coloured, this also need to be restored. Below is the finished result.
