I... I think I'm done?




Original




I'm trying not to get futzy at this point, but it's definitely second-set-of-eyes time. I'm thinking maybe the shadow under the cap is too strong? Maybe not enough overall contrast?

Hi rsvadnie.. no I think your contrast is fine.. any more would be overkill I think.  I don't know about the shadow under the cap.. looks fine to me.. I wouldn't have picked it out.. Great Job!!! now you can have another cup of coffee :up: :up:

Beautiful job, this was a very hard restore.
May a little softening of the outline of her hair and a toning down of the highlights? 
I tried to match the whites of the eyes a little more.

It seems that my browser lost the PostImage button so I will the larger version of Imgur.

Let me take this into PS and try that. Thank you!

What do y'all think? The edge blur on the hair was just what it needed! :)
