In the digital age, it became possible to revive old black and white photographs, to give them color. I suggest you look at a selection of photos of the Great Patriotic War 1941-1945gg, and a little different look at people

        Thanks to the author. The article is huge +.

        Push. My grandfather, a veteran of the Second World War, once said: "You know, then we did not think about who you are by nationality ... the main thing is that we had good people. And God forbid you to survive this in your lifetime." If not for him and people like him - "The Immortal Army !!!" Then most likely we would not write "Good comment", "Article +" ...

        Thanks Grandfather for what you did ....

          Yes, they are our heroes!
          They have done their duty.
          Our task is to fulfill our own, if the Motherland so requires.
          Bookmark the article. Good photos!

      - I think you need to look and b / w, and color photos. B / W photo is more textured, more reliable in the sense that it’s better to convey the spirit and atmosphere of that time. To feel it, you need to look at the b / w photo. And you need to look at color for purely pragmatic purposes - a color photo is more informative, you will see more details, but the feeling is that modern actors have been dressed up in wartime clothes and taken photos. Perhaps this is subjective, IMHO.

        This is the habit of black and white photography, and also, in my opinion, the impression of the little talented contemporary films about the war. Here in "Hot Snow", although in color, in "They Fought for the Motherland" there is no impression "that modern actors were dressed in wartime clothes."

          it's not a habit ...
          in my opinion somehow it didn’t work out neatly with the flowers ... not reliably ...

          although maybe I just don’t like painted films ...
          It really pisses me off that "17 Moments of Spring" and "Only Old Men Go to Battle" (my favorite films) are no longer shown in black and white ...

            So load yourself those old versions and look at health. To be honest, I also don’t like remodels, maybe because the longer I live, the more conservative I become.

        Yes, it looks a little unnatural, I agree. But the EYES turned out to be alive, especially in close-ups. Very worthy selection, respect!

    in vain they are engaged in coloring, really the colors are not so saturated, dust, lighting, burning, fading, when painting it looks somehow unnatural, what kind of fashion is this, the black-and-white frames are most expressive, the eye is not distracted by the colors and the essence of the frame is visible

      In some places it is really very carelessly done. Vryatli is the work of the pros, somewhere they could distort the colors. Compare with color photographs of the time.

        Well, still, there were some strange sensations from color photographs of that time. As if they are some ... too real. For example, Canadians in France. And this is the 44th year. Hard to believe, right? Now compare with the photos in the article. Unfortunately, we had practically no color film. Sometimes it’s better for black and white to stay that way. (Photo clickable)

          it's because of the optics ...
          then black-and-white shots were obtained as live ... not even a figure ...

      No, not in vain! Current generations, in the age of the Internet and digital technologies, perceive black and white photographs poorly, this is not real for them, because the whole world is colorful, but you can see it, but for them these people are not real, almost as imagined, it doesn’t happen ...
      Color photography brings it closer to reality, it is easier to understand by current generations. It’s later, they will understand the whole charm of black-and-white shots, and now they need to understand that these people were LIVE, as we and they were able to accomplish this feat, so we can!
      Even I, having seen these pictures, looked at them in a new way, they became somehow warmer, more lively, I was especially impressed by the picture "feat of the battalion commander" (although it was not a battalion commander), the feat of a still living person who first stood up and raised soldier attacked, and a second later died.
      Yes, the events of the last days show how difficult and difficult it is to "get up" and be the first, who will be followed by all the others. How often, in our time, there is not enough FIRST.
      Eternal Glory to the People who triumphed in that war!

    why not pink or purple painted? The colors are bright, poisonous, unreal.
    Well, garbage that the overcoat, in the mass, was this color, right?

    Well, why can not we approach this issue more carefully, what kind of neglect?

    moreover, the originals are the same enough!

And as you think, Lord, how many people suffered, how many died and how many were crippled .. so that only we can live here normally .. THEY survived! We must always remember this, and our children must remember and know both grandchildren and great-grandchildren
