Marina Amaral: D-Day Colorized

Okay, this is something else.  Digital artist Marina Amaral has created spectacularly vivid colorized versions of some black and white photographs in honor of the 75th Anniversary of D-Day.  

You have to check it out at her website.

It’s really cool how she does it.

Amaral shows you the image – half color and half black & white – with an arrowed icon in the center.

Like this:

And what’s cool about it is it’s interactive.  Amaral allows you to see both the original black & white and her colorized version.

First, drag the icon to the left to see the original in black & white.

Then, as you drag the icon to the right, the colorized version Marina Amaral created appears.

They’re really rich and detailed. I mean, you’d have no idea these photographs weren’t taken in color originally. That’s how flawless her work is.

I have to say, I am in awe of Marina Amaral.  This is amazing!

Check out all of her D-Day images at this LINK.

But also take a gander at some of the other work Marina Amaral has done while you’re there.  She did a series featuring the Tuskegee Airmen that’s really amazing.

Sorry if I’m gushing, but I really dig this kind of stuff.

    I assume you’ve seen “They Shall Not Grow Old”. That was quite awesome as well!

      I have it rented from iTunes, but I have yet to sit down and watch it. Maybe Friday night. I hear it is very good.

    I snuck over to the French section.
    I did not expect those color combinations.
