    I think you could just put them in here with a discription of what they are.

    Mod Note: Will, I can change the title to say "Colorized ACW Pictures" if you wish. That way, you can continue posting in this thread.

    BTW, nice job with Barnard's Atlanta photo. Maybe a little more "red" in the clay....

    That would be great thanks...As for the Atlanta clay, I had pictures of three types of Atlanta soil each slightly different, so used the average of them...On my color pallet, the soil looks more reddish, but when it gets applied it gets muted...But, will try to fix it
    thanks

    These are great! It really adds emotion to an otherwise, black and white time in history. The color really helps you grasp the feeling in the photographs.

    Re: Colorized Atlanta Entrenchments

    Will, I was only funning about the soil. Not all of it is the classic "red clay."

    I've included a photo link from my groups Atlanta Living History from a few years back. The staff set up earthworks by using George Barnard's photos. You can see the soil colors farily well in the sunlight here. Not the vibrant red that many think of. But, it still stains your clothing.
