Well, this was really difficult... every entry I looked at seemed to alter my perception of the previous one!

Please bear in mind that i'm a 'non-expert' at this..! (Colourising AND voting..!)
All the entries were great, considering the the amount of detail in the original.

1 - northernshadow - The cooler colouring of the background seems to enhance the flesh tones of the subjects.

2 - Peter S - I liked the tonal balance and muted colours...only the brides 'punky' haircut stopped me from putting this at no. 1

3 - Daviskw - The warmth and richness appealed to me on this one

4 - soleah - Nice detail... background doesn't overpower subject

5 - cazubi - Liked the muted colours...and I really wanted the 'floozy' to be a real 'black sheep' guest!

Well done to everyone, it was really difficult to come up the top 5.

Given the amount of green in this pic it's not surprising that green would leak into un-intended areas (like faces and hair). First and second were picked on this basis even though a good argument could probably be made that a green caste could be expected in a room full of green. Most of the pics had stray greens (mine included) and I'm guessing this effect would have been lessened if the people were masked off and/or coloured last.

Kudos to everyone who worked on this one. I looked for a good restoration as well as colorization. Here are the five that I felt came closest.


Nice work everyone.

Everyone did a great job in this difficult contest. Congratulations to all of you. Thanks, makeovermagic, for the album.

My votes are based on the final photo quality, reconstruction of missing the background and colorization:

1. Soleah -- Beautiful work to bring out the crispness and clarity of the photo. Colorization and background details are excellent. The bride’s dress is awesome.

2. Cazubi – Background restoration is detailed and extremely well done as is the photo quality and colorization.

3. twinbnj – Good work in maintaining the clarity of the photo and very nice colorization.

4. Doug Colwell – The photo quality is excellent and colorization is good.

5. Littlecoo – Great work on the photo quality. Colorization is good.
