This is a pencil drawing ca. 1903, cracked so badly that usual cloning techniques were useless. I took a large soft cloning brush and actually "painted" the whole image trying to preserve pencil texture wherever possible.
This film ca.1963 was never printed, because the powerful flash blew out highlights and made faces of the children in front rows almost completely white. Scanning and digital restoration recovered highlight details, and the client, former school teacher, could recognize some of her students.
