The first image you see, below, is the original image as it appeared when Carol received it for restoration.
Slide the arrow to the right to reveal the image after Carol's amazing restoration work.
Sometimes photo restoration is less about the dramatic results and more about getting to work with an amazing image! This photo is truly an amazing image.
Carol enhanced this photo of native Austinite astronaut Tim Kopra for his mom. Tim is waving to his family on his first space walk from the International Space Station. Carol reduced the extensive glare on Tim's face and added contrast to make his blissful expression clearer. Tim returned to space with the Russians in fall 2010.
