Migrant Mother (colorized): 1936

I'd been wanting to colorize the Mother of All Dust Bowl Photographs, by Dorothea Lange, for some time and finally got around to doing it for a contest on Fark. View full size.

Mesmerizing!

This colorization is absolutely stunning and in fact, so good that I joined this site just to comment on your work. I've long been a fan of this picture (the original) and teach it every semester in my high school journalism classes. I may just have to add your picture to my line-up, if nothing else, to show the wonders of photography + editing. Thank you for sharing this.
