tb5821,

better ... still their faces are very pale in comparison with the rest of the picture ... I think you forgot to colour the right ear of the boy with the hat ...

The limit in using only Hue&Saturation for colouring is that you get one-colour-only areas ... you might try to create a blank Layer on top (blending > Color) and sampling from the colours you used, paint in either darker or lighter shades to create a 3D illusion ....

In my attachment (from the fist image you posted), you can see how much better you can see the colour on their faces (only areas I quickly worked on) once you darken the mid-tones a bit ...

Vikki,

you are very welcome! ... (and thanks again for them!)

Much better, tb5821! ... The coloured areas started losing their 'one-tone-flatness'... You could also try to selectively apply Color Balance to the different coloured areas to add a touch of a different shade to your colours ...
