Henhead i think you did a pretty good job on the restoration.

But you should not CHANGE the original. I see you did, namely the photos' white borders in the upper left and right corners; plus you painted some white in the air.
It looks like you chose, within the program that you have used, to "delete all color information" because you had the idea "this is a black and white pricture so i MAKE it black and white again. But, any older black & white photographs tend to show some brownish or blueish or yellowish, you name it, tones. So you should handle it in color mode. And overall again: your result lacks the contrast of the original, and you gave it slightly too much brightness.

I agree with you joseph, about the colour and the contrast of the second picture. But i dont see what you mean about the white boarders in the corners, I tried to rebuild the overall shape of the photo as it had become ripped and damaged. The photo also had quite a few rips especialy one from the top centre down.

Thanks for your comments, and i take them all on board
