Hello all

This may have already been discussed, I was wondering how long it took for you to complete your colorization.

I worked a good solid 2 1/2 hours on mine and my fingers were killing me. At the end I found myself bent over my keyboard with my nose 2 inches from the screen.

Hello Butch,
I did mine in 2-½ hrs, same as yours. The restoration took 30 minutes, colorization took 2 hrs. But I didn't work on the colorization straight 2hrs. First day I spent 20 mins, some days 10mins...
Maybe that's the reason why there's less than 20 entries this month. It's not that the would be entrants don't know what to do. They don't have that much time to spare.

Oooh yeah, time consuming indeed... was this meant to be a colourization contest or a patience contest I have to say I spent more time on this one than I care to admit... but then again I am unemployed at the moment so I have plenty of time to kill. This was definately a challenge, after all that fine, fiddly work I did I was loth to reduce my 'layerific' tiff to post specs

Hi Butch. I didn't keep track, but I'm guessing I spent 3 or 4 hours. I'm probably slower than most, but I watch TV while I work. It also takes me longer to type colourize.

Soleah...

Your entry is most excellent! Very nice job! I gave up after about 8 hours and the realization that I had only managed to colorize a fern.

It took me about 4 hour all together,but spread out over a few days. I spent about an hour or so restoring the photo and then the rest of the time
"painting" the color on many layers. There were so many things to color that it really was a challenge to finish it.

Butch, I worked on mine so much I think I'm going through withdrawl.

I have only done one other colorization and wasn't happy with what I did so this was a major learning experience. LOTS of experimentation, often not even saving when I didn't like it. My work flow was very erratic,jumped around all over the place and halfway thru the colorization process I found myself redoing the restoration on the B/W background...

I know what you mean by withdrawal… I liked doing it, very interesting and educational. I see all the experts say you should have a plan before you start… Not me… just jump in and improvise on the fly and hope for the best. Like you I was moving layers up and down to try and make it easy. I actually had to NAME layers…
