RESTORATION OF AN OLD PHOTOGRAPH OF NEW YORK CITY

A beautiful view of St. Patrick's Cathedral photographed at the time when the 5th Avenue was a quiet street perfect for an afternoon stroll, any place above 110th Street was considered to be "the upstate", you could drink all the soda-pop you wanted, and when the men were men and women were grateful for it.

The photograph suffered substantial fading and lack of contrast in the dark tones. After general clean up of the image, masking was used to select shadow areas for adjustment in contrast and tone.

     
A fine art quality print was made from the restored digital image. It is part of a large collection of historic photographs of New York that were restored by Sebastian Wintermute and displayed in New York City historical societies and social clubs.
