    The Lincoln ones are the most striking. Possibly because most of the others they had at least some color photography available at the time.

    Why??? The black & white photos convey much more timeless mystery. Colorizing is not adding any value to these, just as colorizing classic black & white films destroys the classic quality of these images.

    I agree with Tony G.

    These are beautifully done. While usually I wonder why we need to colorized great B&W photographs like these, I can see with these, that there is something conveyed that’s a little different. Because these are so well done there is more immediacy. The B&W’s can be a little bit dismissed as “the past” but the colored versions make the moments they depict seem more real.

    I like many of these, but the Migrant Mother and the Operation Crossroads ones seem better in black and white – there’s a purity to the image that’s lost in colorization.

    My compliments to the color artist, I do this myself but this is top notch work. This isn’t easy to do which makes these pic incredible.. Great Job!

    The self-immolating monk looks so powerful in colour with the saffron robes and bright flames.

    Very skillfully done.

    I think colorized b&w photos are useless but it might be a good idea for b&w movies.

    Very striking. Depending on the image, the colour adds or subtracts from the event.

    Ian H is spot on, yet also agree with Tony G.

    Excellent work.
