Lost and found photo
« on: Saturday 16 January 10 08:05 GMT (UK) »
Can anyone do anything to improve this overexposed photograph.  His eyes appear to be blue, they were brown.  I found this in the back of a photograph frame it has been in there for sixteen years!
Thank you in anticipation,
Abiam
And I hope I have scanned it at 600

Sorted managed to do it myself.

Oh dear I forgot about the size.  Please can a moderator do something about it, please.  It took me ages to get to this stage,
Thank you,
 Abiam

Hi,

I guess my thoughts were right and this photo cannot be improved as many people have looked at it and decided to leave it alone.  I shall still treasure it as it is as one of my happy memories, I understand and thank you for looking,

Abiam

Hi Abiam, you were correct it was 600dpi, I increased to 1200dpi and tried to even out the colours but this was the best I could manage.  :-\

Feel free to alter/modify or colour any restores done by me.
