Thank you

thank you everyone

I appreciate the kind words

Love this photo!

Wow, a incredibly beautiful work of colorization. Parks would be proud!

Looks so real

I never would have guessed that this one was colorized.

Wow!

I would never guess it was colorized. Great work!

I love this picture.

Beautiful

These colorizations are remarkable. I wish I knew how they do it.

Colorizers Are Getting Scary Good

One of the best I have seen. The dog is especially convincing. Still, there is something like the "uncanny valley" with colorizing. To me, this looks like a genuine color photo but my brain is still telling me something is artificial. When I first saw the photo, I thought it was a set from a movie or a play.

Would like to know more about the work that went into this and how long it took.

By coincidence

I knew that dog, and you have his ears too dark. B-

Just kidding. Great job.

Great job, no kidding, I didn't know the difference!

I was surprised to see this was colorized. I was confused for a moment when I read the previous comment.

Great job!

If a person didn't know it was a B&W photo they'd never know the difference.
