Well lets say the photo is a hundred and sixteen years old I hats off to the guy that took the picture. I just colored between the lines.
But I do enjoy it when I can take a image put it in this time period.

The reason why the sun sets in the evening is because it wants to see the sunrise in the morning. I rise in the morning because I want to see them both. RvdB

I cannot color between the lines - that is why I do abstract. I once was pretty good with painting by the numbers, though. Rob, what an excellent job you did here. You could easily teach this to us. Very good.

Her green eyes versus her yellow dress are striking, Rob.
Your coloring work isn't only excellent but the choice for the colors is very appropriate and very well chosen.
Great result of your very artistic skills, my friend!
S+F of course. Thanks!

Such sweet innocence on that face. I utilized many historic photos in my career, some on nitrate, some glass plate negatives, square brownies, bellows cameras, etc., and I found there was always someone (usually an editor with a perfection complex) who would complain about defects in these old images. Well, hell's bells, I would tell them that they should consider the technology of photography in those far off days and realize that defects are simply to be expected. That the abuse that time has forced on an image is part of its own history. I don't see anything in this portrait that I wouldn't expect to see and, again, the colorizing is just the right amount. Outstanding preparation, Rob, not to mention even finding these gems.

Happy Trails

If you've ever wanted to make a difference but found it hard to believe that one person could... check out the Kiva Team Caedes discussion thread and discover that anything is possible.

A very nice restoration, Rob. Grinding the barnacles off this old wreck was worth the elbow grease. And the detail you've achieved in her hair really puts it over the top. Every strand is perfect and gives the portrait a very contemporary, in the moment look. High marks for the harmless fawn look she's trying to patent here too, so sweet I could put it in my morning coffee.
