I must agree with everybody else, a wonderful job and I too would love to read a tutorial on it. (is that enough pressure yet?)

Nice Work!

If this type of work is a repeatable pattern for you, your fortunes are made!!! One of the best I've seen from digital work.

Super job Nik, and another request for a tutorial. How many does it take?

NIK--

Beautifully done! I agree that I'd love to see a tut on this, because the natural look is precisely what I have some difficulty with. Selections, etc., are no problem. It just seems that I lack in some artistic quality that yields natural-looking color (I know, I still haven't posted an example. I promise I will open one up for critiques).

One line in your response intrigues me, Nik:

"The image alpha channel can help isolate the shadow areas so you can change your added color. "

What do you mean by that? I do most of my work in saved alpha channels, but I'm just not quite certain what you mean by isolating the shadow areas using them.

Post tutorial

I will do a Tutorial. Just give me a couple of days to lay it out. I'll try to lay it out for both Corel and Adobe users.

Do I need to make a kink here or do I need to add it somewhere else?

Thank you all for your good words. It's always nice to be able to send my boss a link to such praise.

NIK

If you publish it yourself, just post a link here, or even in our links section.

If you'd like it published here, just send the text and the support images to me via email.

And bravo! We need more tutorials from our members.

OK, I'll try to upload my disappointments :)

Here are two attempts--I'm not fond of either one, but if you folks who do this frequently can at least tell me that I'm on the right track or that I stink at this, I'll feel better.

Any critiques, suggestions, or hints will be very much appreciated. I don't do colorization, really. My forte is restoration and/or retouching, so this is new territory for me. Help!!

Couldn't upload both at the same time. Here's (bad) example #2:
