Restoring the Wye Oak

The Wye Oak, Maryland’s official tree, was about 460 years old when it died in 2002. This image is from a slide I took a number of years ago, with lots of damage – streaks, stratches, dust, mildew, etc. (hey, don’t store slides in your basement), which I now restored to useability with Photoshop’s healing tools.


I used content-aware fill, cloning, dodging, and burning.  Obviously could have been better if I had spent lots more time on it, but it now at least looks like the magnificant Wye Oak of the past.
