First time.
I first brought the photo into Adobe Bridge as picture Raw. I switched it to B&W and played with the color channels to remove most of the rust stains and blotches that were orange and red in tint...mostly moving the Red and orange channels. I then brought the photo into Photoshop and continued to remove the blemishes with mostly the clone tool. I then proceeded with the use of multiple layers removed the noise using Noise Ninja, then several layers creating the luminance in her face. (working in RGB) I then worked to colorize the photo with many layers. Wife says it looks good, she's my judge here at home...what do you think?

You did a very nice job of cleaning up this photo, but the final image looks a tad flat to me. I don’t know why, it may be partly because the whites of her eyes are a bit too bright.

When you create the color layers, do you set the blending mode for the layer to color? If not, give it a try.

I did spend a little extra time cleaning up the photo...(special attention to the lady of the house). I agree that the whites of the eyes are too white, I tried to clean up some of the extra noise in the whites with the dodge tool and removed too much.

When I color, I do use several of the blending modes including "color", I think it goes back to the clean up stage, I have to be careful of how much I clean up.

I'm still learning how to color and techniques.

Thanks for the input.

Cheers!
