Very Tricky - but nice to play with. Bit heavy handed with the texture I think.   :-\

Interesting that you think the middle woman is wearing specs, Peter.  I think so too.    ;).
 I think I can see the reflection in her specs, the arm across her temple and the bridge over near nose!     

We've been having a discussion about it.   :)

Yeah, pretty sure I can see specs.
And then there's Andy's little lamb. Only noticed it when I scrolled through the restores to post mine. I can't quite see that  :), although the child does seem to be holding something.

Yes definitely specs wearer. My guess is that they were posed as such to avoid reflections.

The child's cuddly: I didn't even notice it until I was around halfway through the job! I threw everything at it to determine the actual shape and the lamb was the only thing that really fitted. Obviously my lambs head is fake, but I reckon that its pretty damn close as everything lined up when I put the layer over the original.

Edit: I would love to know if the child was named Mary..... Mary had a little la.............

Not quite as musical but certainly alliterative, "Lorna had a little lamb..."

Thanks so much for everybody's work on this, I had no idea they would turn out so great.
