Gt aunt with a big hat (completed, thanks)
« on: Thursday 06 April 06 08:10 BST (UK) »
hi

Could someone please try to improve this photo? It was taken from a photo and the original wasn't too good. I wasn't allowed to borrow it to scan it which might have been a slightly better result. That thingy on top of her head is indeed an enormous hat.


There is also one of her husband which could do with a little loving care.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Traysha
  Wow that is a big hat! Had a play with the photo to make it  a bit prettier to frame..... :D  I can remove the leafy border if you want....just using a bit of poetic licence 8)

Thank you all for your wonderful efforts. Have been having a go with photoshop elements but still need some practise.

I think it could be ostrich feathers. Would they have had to be rich to afford a hat like that?
