hi kathleen--thanks for the kudos. actually, this photo hasn't been anywhere else. when I uploaded it I accidently chose the wrong file. It was actually my first attempt at colorizing a black and white photo. so thanks!

'Was' meaning it's a historical piece and you've done several since? It IS nice. Only thing I'd add is some red to the cheeks, nose, ears, etc.

Akj, Nice job!!! I like the way you got the tones subdued, a little faded like time has a tendency to do but at the same time "fresh" enough to look natural. That contrast is great. Of course I'm no Art critic or expert but I know what I like and I like it!! Tom

AKJ,

Wonderful work. You're well on your way to the world of colorization looks like to me.

Keep up the great work... Also, very cute little boy.

Oh! Hey this is neat--how did my test image end up here?
Thanks for the comments everyone. To answer your question Doug, this is the first colorization I have done--haven't done any since but plan to do more.

The photo is actually of my dad. I have lots of old photos of him that I love to play and experiment with. The photo where I wanted to add a sky was of him also. He grew up on a farm with 8 older brothers and sisters so they took lots of pictures of him. Lucky me.

If you want to see the original also go to:

Amanda,

I saw it in test and asked Doug to put it where everyone could see it. He graciously sacrificed his birthday and moved it. Ha Ha Isn't he a sweetheart?

Excellent job for coloring something only once. It looks like it was color originally and that's what you are trying to achieve. You did it girl. We're proud of you!!!
DJ

PS Good lookin guy, your dad
