Re: light restoration and colourized

You must have fixed the links because I can see both images.

Well done retouch and colorization. I would remove the added shading to her jaw line. It changes the shape of her face.

Thanks for noticing I was trying to put some colour to her face forget to decrease some of the red.

Re: light restoration and colourized

Very strange that Panpan can see the link to both images. Still getting Yahoo login in either Firefox or IE. Anyway modified the link as follows and can see the image

Edit: Thanks my modified link should be ignored .

Agree with Panpan - but you already spotted this. I have to say that up until fairly recently I have not been a great fan of colourised B&W images. But yours and other work shown on this site has made me rethink and see that very high quality work is achievable (i.e looking like an original colour image).

Yes Tony High quality colourize work is and can be achieveable I didn't know how to colourize at all and couple of years down the line I am up to this standard there is always room for improvements what I want to achieve is as close as I can to a real colourized photograph so I am still practice as hard. please see below my latest.

Re: light restoration and colourized

Your album says this is from a glass negative? What kind of scanner did you use? Great detail.
