Christmas is a time for giving. Why not give something a little bit special. Give someone a memory of a time gone by. Or turn memory into something new and fantastic. Such as colourizing an old black and white photo of a loved one for Christmas. Like the example below.
This isn't England after their semi-final match in the football World Cup. But it did need some restoration!. This is the Coromandel Rugby Club back in the last century, 1899 to be exact. Team photos are often sent to us for restoration. They are probably the most difficult to restore.
This is because of how many faces and how much detail need to be correct. If you smudge a tree in the background it may very well go unnoticed, but smudge somebody's eye in a team photo and everyone will notice the funny-looking guy that you just smudged. This one took a good 6 hours to restore and clean up. But looks very nice now, especially with its new framing and matt border.
