Hi Paul, Most of the image looks pretty good. are you working on seperate layers for each color? I found that the multiply blend mode works well for the baby.

Re: comments on colourization

Paul I used the eyes and teeth from the original and masked into your colored version...
they ALL seemed much to bright to me

The coloring looks pretty good for the second attempt... Keep practicing, you are doing great!

first is a gif to show the difference (wait a couple seconds for it to change)
second is full size of your sample with eyes N teeth from original..

Re: comments on colourization

Many thanks for the replies ,I used masks and multiple layers, great tip Crazyfly about the blend mode and i see what you mean OlBaldy when compared side by side with your take on the eyes and teeth i really overdid the brightness.A little further up the learning curve thanks to all the great people on here who provide tips and tutorials.

Re: comments on colourization

This is a very quick work up on this. First thing was to clean up the original and get it's tones right to accept color. Then I built a set of gradient overlays, set them to color blend mode, and masked them. (I know the masks suck, but I'm working very fast with a touch pad while I'm waiting for a plane.) I describe this technique here. Sorry there isn't time to finish or clean it up (the background, shirts, and teeth are unfinished).

I hope it helps.

Cheers,
Michael
