KM portrait.

Hi Larry,

 

Nice to see another guy in Kriegsmarine Blau here, they are a little bit in the minority in this thread.

 

Any background information / history to the man on that photo ?

 

Best regards

I know so far you gents have been colourising German photographs, but do you think you could have an attempt at this US portrait of my grandfather? I'd like to print it off and give it to my Grandmother. He passed away many years ago and I never got to meet him.

Hi Eric-Jan,

 

Unfortunately no information about the man.

 

Here is a colourised Coastal Artillery portrait from my collection.

Hi Larry,

 

Unfortunately indeed, but we can't have it all.

 

Nice coastal one, but what about the buttons - no gray-green or gold wash, and what about the buckle - no gold wash ?

 

Best regards

Hi,

 

Coastal Artillery personnel wore gold wash belt buckles up to 1937 when regulations were changed and the blue/black buckle also used by Heer troops, was introduced.

The buttons are grey-green but a little hard to see.

 

Cheers,

Larry

Thanks Larry,

 

Do know that the blue/black color for the buckle was much darker, I did have a couple of them.

It happened often enough that even after 1937 the gold wash buckle was still worn for years.

 

Best regards

Hi Larry, wonderful things you both can do to pictures.

 

This oberleutnant you have colorized is in fact a marineoberassistenzarzt, and I have him too... :w00t:

It is indeed a small world. Thanks for the rank identification as well.

My friend owns and runs the 'American Comic shop',he is not a collector and knows nothing about german militaria,when I put these on my face book page he copied them and did the colourisation,got back to me if anything needed correcting,I told him what needed to change and he tweeked it accordingly.

I taught myself to colour photos and I think Alex did as well. My first attempts weren't that great but with a lot of effort and experimentation I got better.

I still have a long way to go.

 

A colourisation of an MG 34 crew on high alert in a forest just outside Leningrad in 1942. Note they are looking into a low sun which would be the direction the enemy would attack from.

 

Cheers,

Larry

This photo was probably taken a short time before the first photo.
