    Passed away 2003

    Would someone like to help me fix the color version.


    Can't see the problem in the small version, but there is bad spots in the full size photo.

    It is certainly a good picture for you to have.... what is it about the colour version that you dont like personally?

    Hi, sorry for your loss. I'm afraid I couldn't get the red overkill out of the plywood but here is my effort...

    Thats my try. I also got ride of the scratch on his crotch. I personally think this looks more realistic color. I guess its up to you though.

    Wow you guys did real good, the scratch in the crotch was the kind of thing I was talking about. When I scaned the picture it came out with holes in the color. When I shrunk the file size down they seem to have went away.

    I love this picture of my dad because you can tell by his uniform he had just gotten there. Even his helmet had a fresh cover on it. I can't imagine what was going through his mind, 18 and a life, now he wakes up in vietnam. He died in 2003 and I know for a fact he never forgot the war. It seems in some ways that it was always on his mind. He did a great job with us kids and was a wonderful provider to the family. My mom passed away in 1998 and she knew that he was always true to her. He was a good man, he deserved better. I miss my parents very much but there are alot of people that didn't have it as good as I did so I am happy for the time I had with them.
    Thank you all for the edits you did great.
