  • First retouch for a client

    Hi All,

    I'm new to the site and to retouching old photos. I would love any feed back on my images! Thanks! I used photoshop 7 and my wacom tablet. I'm not new to photshop at all but the retouching is new to me. Any advice would be great, thanks!

    Mazer, that's kind of small to see any detail and there's no "before" picture to compare it to. Can you post a larger version and the original, too?

      wrong pic


      Sorry I must have posted the wrong one. I also have it in my gallery, if you need a higher resolution I can upload it. I think the one in my gallery is much larger. Thanks for telling me.

        My general impression is that this is a very well done hand colorization.

        Whenever I see a hand colored photograph, I check to see if it is over colored, or if it looks unnaturally colored.

        In the case of your work, the coloring looks natural. I see slight rouge in the faces of the two women, which helps provide a realistic look, and your choice of colors works well, including the fine work on the stained glass.

        I think the face of the second man from the right is slightly over sharpened, and to a lesser extent the first man on the right, but the extent is hard to determine because even the larger image in your gallery is still prety small to look at.
