Below are links to transitional images that show how I progress from an 'original' I come across on the Internet, through some descratching & flattening, then denoising, changing brightness & contrast to what I like, and finally refocusing and resizing to 1450 pixels wide so the final result fits this blog's chosen format.
Descratched and flattened.
