Cabinet card of Irene of Hesse Princess Henry of Prussia

From eBay. The original was blotchy (very spotted) everywhere, but especially the background and face. I removed some of the blotches, especially on the face with Photoshop. The background was then strongly blurred. The monocolor tint was also removed.

Also posted to Princess Irene of Hesse’s Subalbum here.
