Ive been playing around with old family photos taken mostly in the 1960s. I wanted to keep the old black and white look yet color them a little to emphasize the main points. I came up with these. I know these are not digital but they have been digitally enhanced and Id like an opinion on if I should completely color them or leave them as is.

You have done a nice job of adding color to these. Weather you add more color to the rest of the picture has to be a matter of personal preference. I kind of like this effect but on the other hand, I also like the idea of keeping them original too. So maybe you could just do some of each of each picture. One unedited, one with partial color and one with all color!

I love this look!To me, itadds character and yet something special to the photos. The subtle coloring still keeps them looking like '60's photos. I wish I had some of those to work on....unfortunately, my parent's family photos parished in a house fire.....

thanks for the comments, I have got these as black and white and full color but I like this effect the best.

Stitchbabe, sorry to here about your photos being lost in a fire. Thats one of my fears, so I have many old photos scanned and on a disk and the disk is at my sisters place, we both cant have a fire at the same time.
