Re: June 10 Contest Votes
Lots of great entries and very hard to judge this one.

4. CameraKen
5. gemini

I basically looked for the most realistic colorization and then compared hair/eyes color.
One entry would have made the top 5, but the pixel dimension was wrong.
EVERYONE did a fantastic job!

Honorable mention goes to CathyH and rimjhim for their entries.

1.Lorraine – Lovely porcelain skin tones and my very favorite hat! I thought you had the perfect amount of balance between lights and darks - not overly contrasted. Good saturation balance. Lip color very natural.
2.Cupcake – Beautiful skin tones that matched the hair color. My favorite hair – lovely color, curly without being frizzy, and you caught all the wisps at the edges beautifully! Eyes had depth and looked very natural
3.Ruzzez – I thought the shading on the skin conformed most closely with the original. Shading in hair added a nice dimension. I loved the subtle lavender and blue reflections that you added to the shading in the clothes. Really nice!
4.Kraelin – Beautiful skin color! I thought the lips were a little too red to look natural, which brought it down in my vote. Lovely wispy hair edges. Beautiful fabric and you captured the cutwork around the neckline so well! Lovely sheer scarf.
5.Bigdawgz1 – Lovely hair – thought you caught that wisp of hair on the left better than anyone else.

The instructions said to add comments, but maybe I overdid. If so -- sorry!
When I started analyzing the different points of each colorization, I started rearranging my favorites. There were many outstanding entries!

Rimjhim - Yours was my absolute favorite. Beautiful in every way, except that it was more photo art than straight colorization.

What a fun contest!

1st:Ratpat13 - For the difference in handling the fabrics (scarf and dress) and the overall balance.
2nd:Lorraine - balance between softness and crispness.
3rd:cupcake - well balanced, realistic softness.
4th:Jaime - A bit too saturated but very realistic hair.
5th:Gimini1 - for keeping the image as an old picture, well balanced.

Great job everyone. Here are my favourites

1) aartist
2) Lorraine
3) ratpat13
4) Cupcake
5) Ruzzez

Rimjhim this picture is amazing, although I think it falls outside the rules of “Minor photo retouching is permitted to improve imperfections”
Still its excellent work. I’d love to know how you did that.
