Adding Color

Colorizing World War II black and white photos have become a real passion of mine. This photo, by an unknown author, demonstrates the breaking of the Geneva Convention on both sides and the animosity between Canadian and German troops after the Ardenne Abbey Massacre. I was drawn to this image and colorized it using Photoshop. After researching the colors of the uniforms, badges, and guns, I came to this final product after about 5 hours. The picture is of two Canadian soldiers with a captive German soldier in Caen, France.
