    Pretty good, but they are original black and withe, just like The Longest Day.

    They really are good colorations. I know that it takes a lot of effort to do this. There is a certain feel to the black and white pictures that makes them fit the period. These are great pictures but the color is so good they look like they could be recreations in modern day instead of authentic. The first one had that feel of a colorized print from the 40's, the last two could have been frames from a film of today. Awesome work though.
