Hugh Webb - Restore-Colorize by JustinGreene Hugh Webb - Restore-Colorize by JustinGreene
This......was a nightmare.....I have never seen my 1GB of RAM read 0.....

Worked at 600dpi for the entire project, to restore an old photo and simulate real-life color.....This was soooo much work it's not even funny

But I did win the EGDE Show again with it. ROCK!

I pray family doesn't start asking me to do something like this often, I don't even want to imagine 52-hour restores like this for nothing.

I am honestly not surprised that you won a contest with that... You did truly amazing work. Except for some issues regarding lighting, the second picture looks as though someone had reached back through time with a camera and taken a snapshot. I'm not sure what caused the errors that did occur, but they seem to make the individual objects - each man, the carts, horse, etc. - stratified, as though seperate from the objects behind and before them. I'm not really sure what technique you used, so couldn't offer any suggestions to help with that...

i used normal rubber stamp/healing tool to restore the pic, colorizing it totally with adjustment layers, and there are alot of them
