Amazing how much color can increase the realism and/or set the mood of these famous photos.

Interesting how color impacts some photos more than others.  For EG, IMO most WW2 pics carry more of an impact in B&W, kind of sets the tone for me b/c I was obviously not there and to visualize that time is to see it in B&W in my mind.

Yet, that pic of self immolation completely comes to life in color.

I was enjoying those until I got to Liz Taylor.  She was famous for her violet eyes, but the colorized version is more green than anything.  Makes me wonder about the whole process.

I feel the same. Pictures representing hardship (migrant workers, Anne Frank, WW2) affect me more in b&w, whereas Audrey Hepburn and Rita Hayworth are just stunning in color.
