Another lovely treatment Rob. They really went in for the long, meaningful gazes in these portraits, didn't they? Not quite the thousand-yard stare of combat vets, but pretty close. And a lot of the skin texture just wasn't caught in many of the original shots. It gives these new versions of yours kind of an alabaster, or marble statue kind of vibe. Or a ghostly one. I'd also like to see what you could do with the American Depression era photography of Dorothea Lange, especially Migrant Mother. That one might be too raw for this series, or iconic to mess with, but there's a trove of other great photos out there, just waiting to live again with your skills.

Rob, with your perfect way of editing/colorization, you've given this 'unidentified woman' - but to me a natural beauty (without artificial tricks like botox lips, and so on) - a second life. Hardly to believe that the original photograph was already taken between 1873 and about 1916. The natural tint of her skin now could make us believe that she was photographed yesterday!
Another perfectly done job, and a very valuable addition to your great series, my friend!

My thanks to all who leave comments for my work and to those of you who like one enough to make it a favourite. To touch just one person that way makes each image worthwhile. . . . . . . . . .. . . . "The question is not what you look at, but what you see" ~ Marcel Proust
