I liked this shot, a lot. But I thought I would play around with the Nik Collection. This is using one of the vintage presets, with the original color image overlayed at 50% opacity to bring in some color.
I like the result. Does it work? Or too cheesy? It won't hurt my feelings, have at it!

I like it. Maybe a tad too much reverse vignette. Too much of her hair disappears, especially at the top of the head.

A smile like hers would come through any kind of PP.

You might get more comments in the Digital Art Forum...

Thanks, will cross-post. Hadn't thought of that.

The "reverse vignette" is actually an artifact of the Nik plugin used, as I did not intentionally apply any vignetting either way. But I see what you're referring to.

two issues I have...

1. I would like to see some more "damage" or "cracking" in the photo, like it's been tossed around a bit from wear and tear.

2. The hair and shirt top don't match the "vintage" era. I'm assuming this is just a test shot, but I would not use it on contemporary looking subjects.

Looking at the image as a whole is hard for me as the lips seem to dominate the image. The color is not what one might expect and the intensity is too much for me. Less might have been more with this particular model and shot. I love the Nik Suite but I would have to say no to this particular application. Worth trying again but maybe just let the preset be. One thing I like about Perfect Effects: you can not only stack presets as in Nik but you can also adjust the opacity of each filter in the stack. One stop shopping.

Huh, I wasn't getting notifications for your comments. Thanks everyone. Like I said, this was more of a "let's click around and see what happens."
I do agree the lipstick color was a bit much, but it was her choice, and she wasn't a "model" but rather a family member who I then photographed. So I had no say in her make up!
But points taken. Thanks.

I was just thinking the color and impact of the lipstick might have been a result of your processing as well as the woman's choice. I was just guessing. It might be nice to see the original to compare more factually.

The look is very reminiscent of oil tinted B&W photos from the '50's and '60's. Toning down the lips would be an easy fix and would make them fit in with the rest of the photo.

If you want to play, do a B&W conversion of the image. Add a slight sepia tone, the sit this as a layer on top. Reduce the opacity.

I still have a set of Marshall's Photo Oils. You can still buy them!

Here's a link to some samples of hand tinted photos, showing techniques that range from subtle to garish. Be aware that this might be NSFW, there's some French post cards in the group!

Awesome stuff. Thanks.

I've added the original to the OP as suggested.
