Well the top half seems to me that it could be a little darker.  IE bring down the blacks some in just the upper half.  I sampled the bill of the gentleman's hat and lowered the luminosity of it.  I spared the lower half by using a layer mask on the curves layer.

Update.   From beginning to end. The guys hand will be about the last thing I really go back and work on later.  Heading out for a country drive!!  :hug:

  :)     :) 

Decided to do a B/W in case the moderators wanted to add their own version of old manilla coloration.

Great job Candy. Only suggestion I would make would be to darken some areas and lighten others. Woman skirt will be darker towards the bottom from shadows, but a gradual blend and perhaps need darker towards the top. I also darken the eyes, service hat, and hair of both. The easiest way to do this without messing up your work is to go to the top menu on PhotoShop and choose Layer>New>Mode with with Overlay of Soft Light>check box for neutral color (50% gray). I then pick a soft brush at pick a low opacity to start with and change as needed. For making darker and foreground black and for lighter foreground box white.

Margie, I did all of that at one time or another and then another suggestion came in and I'd rework it. Sometimes suggestions can be a blessing and a curse.  I'll go back and look at it.   Thank you.   :)  How's this one?
