Default Old School Photo

Please cc. My first restoration of an old photo. It could be better but it's my first attempt and this one was a real challenge.

Thanks,
Nancy

I think you did a good job.
If your first try is so good you have to be confident for the next ones!

I do photo restoration in my studio and I can give you some advice:

- try to not make the image too soft or you will loose to much details;
- when you do a restoration, think about the print result you will give to your client;
- use mainly the clone tool with different settings to have hard restoration on some parts and a soft one on the others;
- use the unsharpen mask combined with layers fusion methods to achieve better results.

I hope this will help
