This is really fantastic!! I love your work and this one is brilliant. You have great color choices and they're never brownish, smudged up, or just so layered on with effects that it looks like a painting than a photograph. Please color more!

Welcome to the forum! Very beautifully done. Wish to see your other works;).

That's looks like a Renaissance painting!  Amazing results when working with that deep shadow. Really good

DuchessofDiego, I'm so impressed with your colorings!! They're really gorgeous and have a glowing quality. The skin and hair is lovely. I hope to see more!

Not too pleased with these, especially the second one. Oh well.

Holly, the variety of hair colors in the first photo is great and makes each girl stand out individually!
Ally, the coloring of the Hesse children is so rich and lively and the photo of Maria is one of my favorites!

This was a rather difficult one...the size of the photo and details were challenging, but i feel it came out well :)
