Welcome to Metacolor
Happy New Year!
A revisit and retouch to one of my favorite colorized photos. I added some subtle detail to the skin tones and hair, upped the vibrance and adjusted the reflections in the chairs.
I originally completed this photo a year ago and it is in the top five of the most time consuming photos I have ever worked on. The drawstrings on the balloons nearly made me give up multiple times. I am glad I powered through, because I love how it turned it out.
The original photo is below as well as my full size colorization.
