Amazing Black & White Photos Restored to Color


colorized_wcth38

This is really amazing, 20 historic black and white photographs that are restored in colour. This is called colorised and although this looks simple it is complex and difficult process, truly a work of art. The photographs really come back to life, because the artist tried to make the photograph colours as accurate as possible.

The major contributors are a mix of professional and amateur colorisers that bring historic photos to life through colour. All of them are highly skilled digital artists that use a combination of historical reference material and a natural eye for colour.
