Here is a new one I worked on last weekend. Clara with Harrison Ford.

Great stuff, but why are those Tennis Balls Green? Stan and Ollie look great, though it appears everyone behind them are still Black and White? Can't quite identify Everyone in The Keystone Hotel. Some unique choices.

Another fine job, Little Caesar, with some judgment calls. I like to use am ambiant brown over the entire image because it gives it a genuine color photography look (sometimes). Without it, images tend to look a bit like comic book color and the ambiant brown levels it out. In my Photoshop, it is labeled under the function, "Correct skin tones."
After applying the brown, I toned down the color intensity a bit. This is really an A/B comparison but what do you think?

I thought Tennis Balls were a light Yellow or white? But I haven't seen any in a long time. I tried to adjust the ones that Norma is holding there, and they just look like Green Apples now. So I don't get it?
I'm sure my STAR OF MIDNIGHT photo is less sharp because I copied it from here to my C drive, opened it in Photoshop, saved it back to my C drive then copied it to Photobucket to post here. I'm sure the dpi rate took some losses through all that. At any rate, my purpose was to suggest nuances you can give a color transfer. If your goal is to simulate the vivid colors of lobby cards (which was my initial inspiration) than you're doing just fine. These days I'm trying to imitate genuine color photos from the Kodachrome era - vivid w/o that lobby card type of saturation.
Here's one I just did. The background on the right was problematic but I'm pleased with Rudy:
BLOOD AND SAND (1922)
A couple of things troubled me with the Norma image. It had a washed out quality and the lower part of Norma got lost in the tennis court. How's this?

Looks good. Although Harold's suit and tie both appear to be green on my monitor? Is that what you wanted? Don't see anything wrong at first glance with Constance skin-tone.
