Enhancement - Looking for Lost Details - November 2014

For some, an old photograph loses its charm when "restored" to modern day clarity with all the age spots removed. Some photographs however, benefit greatly from just a nudge of enhancement.

An improved contrast or the reversal of the yellowing brings out details that otherwise would have been missed and lost forever.

To please both camps of those of those who rescue old photographs, here are both the originals and the enhanced of just a few of the latest additions to Lost Gallery.

Again, there are some really good examples this month, where a little boost made a great difference. As always, little or nothing has been "repaired" but just enhanced a bit.

THE KIDS Lesson one. It is always a mystery how a photograph of any of these precious children could end up lost or abandoned. Here are a few. You will probably say "Ooh..." at least once.

  1. The way that you've arranged the before and after photos makes them seem like cross-eyed stereoview 3-D photos. The very last one is my favorite. Give that couple a pitchfork and its another American Gothic. .
