    I think you did a great job on the restoration!
    The coloring looks off though.
    If you're interested, here's a tutorial for coloring that produces some really good results.

    Here's a version I did, using that technique:

      I agree good job on fixing the damage. The color one is off, its overly saturated. The color on the face is all one color. That tutorial is a good one. Make sure that you take that color out of the eyes.

      As for the restored B&W, again good job on the damage now all it needs is more snap. The photo is muddy. The darker shades need more density.

        thanks!

        Thank you both for your input. I have only been doing this sorta stuff for a couple of months, so i'm still learning alot. Vikki, your version was astounding, when i get time, i'll try that method, there were a few more good tutorials on that site too that were very helpful.i agree that my restored version is "muddy" a bit more work needed there! But your comments have helped me a lot, & are greatly appreciated. Many thanks!

          by Nu2retouch
          On a recent trip home, I found an old picture of my grandparents. It was in pretty bad shape, and I thought about restoring it. I really haven't done this before, but this photo gave me the inspiration to try.

          I have PSE6 and really only use it to tweak my digital pics, so this was a...

          In my opinion the original was in great shape, aside from...

          I'm taking the plunge. Just going to put myself out there. What did Eleanor Roosevelt say? Something about facing your fear? Well, here goes. It's my first attempt after watching the VTC.com Photoshop Restoration tutorial. I only used the healing and patch tools really. I think there was some...
