Can this be made good enought to frame please
« on: Monday 25 September 06 08:22 BST (UK) »
Another "only one I have" this time the only one I have of my late mother and father together.  It is still in reasonably good condition, but has a few creases and has started to fade in places, I would love to be able to have a good enough copy to put in a frame.

Have tried to tamper with it myself.........but......still trying!

Thank you
Kaz

Heres a sepia version, a colour version follows from Mrs Saddles.

Print size is as you see it

My attempt

Do you have any preference for colours, as in hair, suit, flowers etc?

Oh that is lovely too Mike, thank you

Can see i'm gonna need lots of photo paper and lots of frames for this one!  How can I possibly chose between them all!

Lones,  I have no idea on what the colours would have been, my father was always a dark suit man, so would assume his suit would have been a black pinstripe, both their hair was dark brown, flowers.....what ever you feel looks best, would be lovely to see with a bit of colour.   The picture was taken in 1946 if this helps.
