Merry Christmas to All,
I just couldn’t leave Santa in B&W.
Christmas is such a colorful time of year.

Pheeeew! I had to make so many selections to add color.
Lorraine was right. This restoration takes time, lots of time.

Thanks for the wonderful old photo to work on klassylady,
I'm glad Larry liked it.
Photos like this are treasured memories.
I just wish I had more old photos of my family.

Happy Holidays
Matt

Very nice, Matt. The colorization brings out the texture beautifully.

Thanks for the comments Cassidy and Lorraine,

Klassylady - You were right when you said it looked as if the
children were eating crumpled white paper.
I followed your advice and changed it to yellow popcorn.
I think it looks better.

Nice stuff Matt. I'm gonna give this one a go as well. Not sure if I'm gonna colour it yet....first things first I guess....see what detail I can salvage.

Really nice colouring.
