Editing and restoring paintings on GIMP
I just tried this, with a John Constable painting you may find photographed at Wikipedia

[Image: John_Constable_-_Wivenhoe_Park%2C_Essex_...roject.jpg]

And took it to GIMP, where I edited it and attempted a full restore to bring it back to life, and voilá, here's the end result:

Hope you like it, any comments or criticism welcome

Btw, I just added saturation, a bit of contrast with the curves, and used the exposure and blacks tool, that's all.
Pretty cool. You stopped just before it goes too far.
