    Re: Six month Progress PS

    Nice work and progress

    Great work on the first one, maybe i will tried to fill the holes of the tree with the blue of the sky.

    The second is my less favorite, the blur around the characters dont make sense and take to much attention and have to much brightness, the skin needs more colour.

    The third is a good job, the sky colour a little odd and the white (columns) is to bright and clean for the type of house, location, etc.

    The fourth one, i like the skin , the eyes to much sharpening compared with the rest and too much blur on the background maybe.

    Cheers!

    Re: Six month Progress PS

    I agree with Argos.

    You have created great work that I really like very much.

    Nevertheless, one has to respect an important principle when coloring and restoring pictures.
    Old photos have a smaller contrast range than new photos.
    So, do not make the highlights too light, and the shadows not too dark.
    The same principle applies to the colors. Do not use too strong or bright colors. And always multiply the corresponding layer. Reduce the opacity if necessary.

    I am looking forward to see more work from you.

    Regards Chris
