A separate Hue & saturation AL for each colour, shirt, skin, Trousers etc.
Then clone and heal for all the scratches and so on.
Removed background and replace with a gradient.
Ran Neat image to remove all the JPEG bit and pieces.
Added grain to remove the plastic look.
Sharpened and resized.

Good colorization. I do notice a hard black edge around the couple - maybe left over from the extraction?

Had a go at this one as well, and I do now see the problem with the hard shadow around them. Not sure yet if I will leave or soften. Anyhow it'snot to do with extraction.

Ta V much
I think maybe I should have softened the shadows a little.
I think they where very close to the wall, hence the shadow quite sharp.
The JPEG noise did not help with this one, it was very pronounced, it could have been saved as a JPEG several times I suppose.
I didn't use extract when replacing the background, I just selected with the Polygon tool, smoothed by a couple of pixels then a small feather applied. Added this selection to a new layer as a mask then added the gradient (though it's only a very slight gradient)
