Re-touching old photo

By TheRa1    
This is Jim and Una, my wife's parents. The original photo was taken in sepia back in the 1940's and today is faded and has a lot of marks and spots. I decided to
take a picture of it using natural light from a sky light using a 50mm 1.8 Nikkor lens and converted to B&W. I spent a long time cleaning it up and at the same time
applied my own dodge and burn to help lift the image.

I like to result and more importantly, so does my wife and her family.
