Made my previous efforts sharper

Oh thank you PatBot, though I thought your earlier ones were very good, I can see what you mean by 'sharper'.
Just hoping you haven't been sat there at a desk since July working on these - or least have got up now and then for meals and comfort breaks ;-)

Really appreciated

Boo


Boo, I haven't been wasting away at my desk  ;D It only took a few mins on each photo to sharpen them. Glad you like them,
Pat

Thanks (x2) for those Carol.

I'm about to disappear into the kitchen to start dinner, but will study the one you say 'has errors' later - cos for the life of me I can't see any :-)

But that is from my point of view - if I had any idea of how to even start!  but understand you all are critical of your own work as you aim for (and achieve) wonderful results.

The light was fading and with it went my eyesight  ;D  Maybe not as sharp as some versions but I went for the softer look, after all, this was taken over 70 years ago, and, I don't use photo enhacing Apps that are now in common usage ;) I would say this was most likely to be her wedding photo as it was a wartime wedding when material was in short supply  ;)

I agree with you Carol about the use of enhancing apps, when they are not used the photos look more natural, I prefer them that way.

I don't know enough (ok, anything!) about the different techniques to comment on them.
Everyone who responds takes the same photo, works their own individual magic and skills on it and each produces something that is an improvement  -  but they are all unique and subtly different - that fascinates me and is super to see.

I save them all with a list of those were kind enough to work on them for me, along with the original - which in its own way, even torn and dirty, is special too :-)
