Re: colourize black and white photo

Your colorization looks really nice, particularly the skin tones. If anything could use a little more work I might venture to say the hair. At the moment it looks a little flat, like only one color was used, I might try varying the hue and lightness darkness int he shadows and highlights. Similarly perhaps in the coloring of the clothing. Those two things are the only parts that feel like they have been colorized. Beyond that great job.

Thank you all for your nice comments about my work. I am afraid I was a bit shabby with the colourizing sometimes when I need to shill out from a hard days work I just grab a photo and colourize it I am always practicing because there is always room for improvement also I like to share because I know some people love colourizing black and white photo as much as I do and hope I can inspire people them to keep colourizing.

Re: colourize black and white photo

Shabby? There is a lot of colorized work posted on this form and plenty of it misses the mark, your doesn't. It's not shabby at all, you might be able to put more time into it but that's true of almost all our digital work. It's a good skill to have and be able to do convincingly. Keep it up.

Just curious. Same retoucher and simply using a different ID in this forum? The results look rather similar.

You are corect it is the same retoucher on dprewiew.com my username is Marie which is my real name, helen is the name that was given to me when I had my first communion so sometimes I use both names. Sergio which is my cat's registry name I used that name when I first register on retouchpro.com

Hope I've sort your curiousity.
