Saw this on eBay and thought I'd have a go at repairing the photo. I know there are far better versions out there was just looking for the challenge.

Hi Matt, I was wondering if you could work your magic on this image? I think it would be a dynamite photo to use on a CD project I'm working on. Much appreciated (p.s. - thanks for the new avatar!)

Came across this photo of Elvis on Facebook, I'm always amazed at how Elvis could like amazing in one show and then pale, ill looking and bloated. Thus went back as far as 1972. So I thought some of this has got to be lighting and being caught in a unflattering way.

This photo was one where I thought Elvis could do with a second chance. I basically took the picture back to black and white and cleaned up and recoloured. Quite happy with the result.

Tell what you think.

Outstanding Matt! Elvis looked so awesome in that jumpsuit during that Philly show. He was so energetic and was perpetual motion the entire show! A beautiful jumpsuit. I never tire of seeing pictures from that amazing concert.

I remember having a poster on my wall from that show, I just don't understand how there isn't a good quality picture of that poster around.

Someone must have one out there!

I have tinkered with the pictured attached and done some repair work in trying to have a bigger version

I still got mine framed on the wall, bought around 1975...
It is my all time No.1 pic of our man.
