    For some reason uploading the JPEG distorts the colors in the photo. Oh well, I will try later

    Awesome man! For one of your first times, this is really fantastic. Wayyy better than my first attempts!! haha

    As a fellow colorizer, May I suggest colorizing the lips...usually using the same color you used for the skin, but in a different opacity. Also, eyes make a photo come alive.....so don't be afraid to spend some time on the eyes. Both pupils and iris.
    Ive noticed you have already found out how to use the "soft light" function....which is a HUGE part of colorizing these old photos. Great job, and please feel free to add to our colorizing thread in the German photos section if you decide to do any German pics.

    Thank you for the compliments and tips Bill! Do you know how to make the white on the eyes stand out better? I will mostly colorize Soviet, German and Finnish pics.
