This one was harder than I anticipated. I took a long time trying to determine what the original colors might be and came up with these.

I used the blue channel and colorized with separate layers using overlay or color blending.

Cloning and burning to fix the frame area and minor blemishes.

Neatimage with masking to finish it.

Thank you, Cvandever

I struggled with this one... well, I struggle with each challenge since I've just started to learn.

In looking at this one later, I thought it looked a little flat, so I increased the luminosity (is that the proper term?).

Good clean image without overdoing anything. Nice one

It's better to burn out than fade away!

Thank you, Timbo, for your reply. It is very appreciated.

I used to think that colorization would always look fake, after learning better my personal goal is to hide all traces of it. I hope someday to attain a professional skill level.

This is a great restoration! The colors are very natural and the overall look is wonderful. Nice work!

Thank you, FrannyMae, your words are generous and very appreciated.

I was hoping that it would look natural. In my learning process I've found it difficult to choose the right colors... maybe that will be easier as I learn and practice more.
