Your colorized photo is great! Skin tones vary from person to person depending on whether they are in strong light or shade and colorizing skin is tricky. I think you got this one about right. Keep up the good work.

Here is my first attempt, half an hour of work.

As you see, the background still looks kindah black and white. Any tips on colorising such a blurry background ?



Colorised



Some brightness and contrast adjustment to make it look more realistic/period



Any further comments and tips would be appreciated

I this. Thanks for starting this thread, and thanks Ian for the great "manual".

Here is my second photo, only half an hour of work.





Any tips on how I could improve the result are of course welcome.

My father does digital photo restoration and colorization professionally.. Most times he goes pixel by pixel using an older version of Photoshop on a high-end Mac system. This is not a plug, but you can see here in an old wedding photo a sample of his work.
