The steps I took in colorizing this interesting photo were:

1. Opened up the tonal range with a curves layer
2. Added a fleshtone layer (color blending mode) for the face, hands and neck
3. Added a facial touch-up layer for adding some red highights to face
4. Added coloring to the rest or the photo
5. Sharpened the image selectively with an unsharp mask and painting on to a layer mask

Your getting pretty good at this!
Just wondering, has he got a long sleeved white vest on? Or is his fore arm pale white? Through the sleeve hole on HIS left arm.
Cor ain't I being picky.
Brilliant job as usual.
Just thinking - Your house must be wonderfully decorated!!!

Thank you very much Steve!

To me, it looked like he was wearing a white undershirt that showed through.

Hello Kezzy:

Hang in there and keep practicing, work with techniques from good books and this web site. With color, less is better. It seems like when we first start to colorize photos we like to use more color than is natural.
