    Photo Restoration

    I had a job given to me this morning to restore this photo...

    To this image.

    The polo pony and the man in pink have just been inducted into the Polo Hall of Fame, and the only photo to be had of this pony, who is now long gone, and the man, who is now severely disabled and not able to ride, was the top one and the pink shirted image from another photo.

    That's his dad in the purple shirt.

    Not Art Rage, but Photoshop, which I am experienced in this sort of thing, but I'd thought I'd show it, 'cos I'm pretty chuffed!

    So what you're saying that's 'is fadder on 'is mudder?
    Sure looks like the photo was left beside the race track with all the splashes of mud. But of course the polo ponies could kick a bit around too, I'm sure.

    Have fun with it and take your time cause it looks like there's not too much space to clone from.

    And congrats on the job! Prestige. Definitely have your before and after pics if you want work doing restoration. Nobody will be able to doubt your skill if you pull this one off.

    That's it Mr Akey! Job's done. I'll show you the other pic I took it from.

    It took a while as I had to change his outside arm, blend him with the dad's trousers and legs, rebuild the polo stickie thingie (?), and put a ball onto the ground for him to bat.
    The pony's been turned around to allow him to address the ball, and the grass area at the bottom has been cloned to balance the composition.

    Great fun, and I got paid for it!

    What a challenge! But you rose to it. Selecting and cloning in Photoshop is really handy, but hard to do well. You are an ace! No chance of your efforts appearing on th Photoshop Disasters website!!

    Thank you Lin! They are thrilled, and it will be blown up on a big screen for the presentation, so my PhotoZoom Pro had a job to do as well.

    Love technology!!
