Could this be the best?

Like it say's this is probably the best color job you're ever going to see, I dare you to "try" and pick anything!. Old fellas shoes not included, left em till last and by then i was over it.

P.S. If you don't reply, you AGREE!

Toe.. Welcome to RTP

To be honest, I've seen better. Yours is not bad, but the children seem washed out compared to the contrast of the adults.

Re: Could this be the best?

Not seeing the original no doubt flaws my critique.

I'll agree with the Swamp lady, however I do realize that uneven lighting was prevelant in that time period. I think more detail could have been brought out on the outer edge individuals and some burning on the children. Contrast is also uneven (as stated). The unvaried color on the brick background looks "colored" and incomplete. The concrete and grey suits have a redish cast as well.

As far as the overall coloring, it seems under colored to my taste. However, if this coloring "floats your boat" and you are truly as content as you imply, keep practicing, you'll get even better.

they don't look alive, they look colorized. Where's the warm skin undertone?

I could say that your arrogance is irritating but instead I'll be charitable and say that your self-confidence is admirable.

I'm with Swampy. It's not bad, but I've seen lots better. Sorry.

Nancy, Vickie's work is very good, but just browsing her gallery her before's don't appear to be in real bad shape.

The ones in the colourization gallery have been cleaned up first. Her restoration gallery has some that are in pretty bad shape and as old pics go, the OPs isnt in too bad shape.
