Overly ambitious Bridal Shower set?
« on: January 12, 2018, 05:47:20 PM »
Thought I would be clever and request a set of images as there seemed to be overlap in areas I could borrow from to reconstruct across the set - for the most part it has been a very helpful approach.

However, I am getting a bit stuck at the current stage of things, and I am worried that having worked on these now for close to two months (several hours a day, 2-3 days a week excluding a couple weeks around the xmas-new year's season) that I may be taking too long.

I definitely need some help with how to go about reconstructing areas for which I have no info, such as the lower-right and bottom edges (feet?) also there appears to be a person reaching from the right-hand side of the frame in a couple shots, but I have no face or body to work from, just an arm and hand... (The most damaged of the four images I have yet to start.)

Aside from that, I know there's a lot of finishing-touch kind of work left to do, but I can't embark on that until I've managed to piece together the rest of the scene...thoughts? Thanks in advance for your expertise and insights!






















As a footnote, I am about to leave for a week-long escape from the Canadian winter here in Saskatchewan, but would like to finish these off when I return. I may not be able to see your responses right away, so I apologize in advance if you have questions for me that I am delayed in answering... (first time posting for Forum feedback, new to this process, be gentle!)     :cool:

Hi Allison,

Having so many photos to look at the same time may prove to be a little discouraging for volunteers to give comments?

What if you post one at the time (original and WIP).

Not sure what is going on but the photos for this family have already been restored, printed and sent home to the owner!

Allison, no photo should be with a volunteer for 2 months, 2 days maybe and a couple weeks at most. When you didn't respond, the distributor did the responsible thing and put that photo out for another.
