Want to colourise this photo

Hi All,

I've been trying to colorise this photo of my grandparents (which is about 50 years old now) for the past year on and off and can't get it right.

I've uploaded the B&W original and my feeble attempt...

Any ideas, tips or hints?

Can you tell me a little more

What method are you using to do your colorizing? There are about a dozen methods out there...

Thanks for that, I can't get the darned thing to work though. When I try Colour Replace, and click on a colour to replace because its a black and white photo it replaces all the blacks for example - or it puts a tone over the whole photo.

What am I doing wrong?
