This is my 3rd try to colorize this photo.  Please let me know what you think.  I've left the earlier try here to compare.

Wow!  Great job. Never realised what a beauty she was. Strange how we respond to colour in our age because we are so used to it. It's only when you see a really good colourisation like this that you see the person in the photo as one of us and not something in the past

Golly! (fans self). This is one of the best comments I've received.  Thank you, it matters to me to make them as real as possible.  😀

😀.  The first version I submitted was very saturated and very very smoothed.  It was met with instant scorn and some harsh comments on Reddit.  To have this revision praised means the world to me.  Thank you!

I think this is pretty in both attempts.

Do you happen to have the original photo so I could try it, too?
(I don't think I could make it look good, but I'm willing to try!)

Hey Sweetie, please do try it!  I know it would turn out beautiful!  I get the best photos from Doctormacro.com.   They're scanned (usually) and very textural.  (((((Hug)))).  I can hardly wait to see what you think of the site!  I know you'll be as excited as I was!
