Another Restoration example

This is another example of digital restoration from the same collection as the one below. The first problem here was the sky. I made the decision to simply scrap the existing sky and create a new one from scratch. I added some grain to the new sky so that it would match the original. The rest of the photo had many condition issues most of which could be fixed with the healing brush in photo shop. Some of the large areas in the rocks required some copy and paste using the method described below. It should be noted that I first remove the color before restoration - it is easier to retouch in gray scale. In most cases I will try to match the original color but in this case I chose not to.
