I'm sure some of you all have seen these, but they're relevant to this thread.....I did them a couple of months ago for my friend. His grandpa was a jockey in the early 1900s. Even I was surprised how they turned out.

I remember seeing those. The one with Grandpa sitting on #4 is definitely an accomplishment!!! Nice!!!

Please do, get the original size off Flickr, but it is not much bigger

Well, here's a quick shot at it...I'm no pro. ;) Ed

Ok, here's the before and after restoration pics of my mother as a toddler...probably around 1929. Again, I ain't no pro. :)

Thanks, ChibiM. It really is an early edit of mine, though did a little tweaking yesterday on it. It was does with very basic tools and with very basic knowledge/info.<grin> Also, it would look better in a smaller size. I usually host on Flickr and link to my images but I figured this was a quick upload, but I forgot about image size. The original image was three to four inches tall as I recall. Those old large format cameras made some nice images (when they were "right"). ;)

As said earlier, the child is my mother...the lady standing behind her is my grandmother. Who knows who the other people are??? :-)

Working with old pictures of my family really gets me to thinking....

Best wishes,
Ed

Not only is this a nice restore, it's a cool picture. Any idea where this was?

One thing though.......you amputated the center guy's right foot. Just to the left of the baby.

:p You noticed!!! This was back when I first started tinkering with editing images...not that I'm any better now, but I relied *heavily* on the clone brush (as you can tell below the levitating guy). I may go back to the original scan and see about stealing a foot and part of a leg. ;)

The image was here in south Alabama. I'm pretty sure in Crenshaw County, though it could have been in south Montgomery County. Probably in the vicinity of Bradleyton or on up around Ramer. Rural area.

Thanks for the comments!
Ed
