so this was my first time colorizing a b&w image, I'd appreciate suggestions on what to do better, and how to do it better.

Adhd to me that is brilliant looks like a new photo and tobe honest looks as if it was in colour to start with, And switched from colour to B&W visa versa!
I am not saying that is what you did, Still if you did the colouring what software did you use? And settings I for one would love to know! I have been trying to master colouring old photos for a while and never achieved that sort of brilliance and perfection, Great work.

Regards Barry

Right on with the balance, blending, saturation...everything. Wish I could do as well. What are your secrets?

adhd: Wow, this is really top-notch. Only think I think could be added is a bit of background color. You should enter the colorization contest!

barry: I like this also, and am extremely impressed with the speed with which you accomplished it, wish I could get that part down.

well thank you, and looking at how well you did it on that lil time I guess the only advice I can give you is to give it more time, cuz I didn't even have the energy to finish it all in one sweap. I used PS cs

I agree that your eye for color is right on, but the jacket (the sleeve) and face mask are still a little monochromatic (did you leave the background in b&w for a reason?). You will never see true greys in real life, so these areas must also be painted with a very gentle color (or a stronger color in the case of the jacket's sleeve), more of a cast than anything else. Also the color bleeds a little here and there. Other than that, great job.
