Company B (Colorized): 1864

I've developed an interest in colorizing photos from the time before there was color photography. This one looked like the job would be easy, but the trees were very hard to do because the trunks blend so well with the boughs. I'm not satisfied with the flesh tones but they're the best I could do. One Civil War buff told me the coats should be a darker blue but I think those guys were outdoors for weeks and those coats probably faded. Overall, it's not a more interesting photo colorized but I thought I'd share it anyway. View full size.
