Gravestone Photo Restoration.
This Gravestone Photo Restoration was very special to my client. I like to know the history of some pictures that I work on but due to the subject I decided it was best kept private to the owners memories. I had to ask if it was just the gravestone that mattered and not the surrounding area as in some places it was too bad to simply restore. After suggesting that I import a new surround for this Gravestone Photo Restoration the client became intrigued and gave me the ok.
You can see clearly what I have done with the stone as I reconstructed it to the full size, but what I also did was blend in new background objects, manipulated them to copy the original effect then hoped it looked good enough for my client, fortunately he was very pleased.
