Be It Ever So Humble...
great work, i think you mantged perfectly the color from your original b&w looks just very good
i have been waiting for this photo since i saw the external shot posted yesterday...you have done a wonderful job hand coloring this photo...i like your choice of colors and tones...as you have already pointed out the blown out door is slightly distracting but neccessary for this beautiful exposure...i like the glow around the door created by the light seeping in through the opening and cracks...great capture...peace***

Interesting picture. Thanks for the notes. I've always wanted to try hand coloring, but never have gotten around to it.
Great shot and thanks so much for the information on the process. I do not mind the blown our area, it does not take anything away from the details within IMHO. The door itself and the light work so well together...great mood. Nicely done David.
Peace and Love always!

I am impressed by your work, actually! the effect is so nice with tarnished looking colours now. I love the lighting, so moody! Do not worry about blown out part, you were right that it would have appeared too dark which would be a pitty, as the details around are so lovely to observe.
well done, compliments!

I like the mood, the colors and this light coming from the bottom of the door.
I think it is abandoned many years ago,and u did great PP work by coloring a B&W like this.really so much details in the compo,and good usage of light here.
Hi David, not only a great photograph, but your notes are really fantastic too. It is great for novices like me to read how 'it used to be done' before digital and photoshop.
GREAT work, and thank you so much !
