In our previous photography contest (The way we were), we asked photographers to upload older photos, which were often not in full color.

That's where this contest comes in. Your goal is to take any entry from this contest and bring it to life with more color. The photo you colorize must be one from that contest.

The photo you chose to work with does not necessarily have to be B&W, you can chose any entry from the contest and alter its colors. You may also retouch the photo, i.e. fix blurry parts, faded parts or cuts.

To download the highest resolution version of a photo, make sure to click on the photo itself (not the thumbnail).

As always, it's important to vote and comment on all other entries. Valuable feedback is appreciated by everyone and gives them a chance to learn and improve!

Good luck!

Nameless picture created by retired

Tried to edit it Zizounai, but unsuccessful, (there should be a better way, as per any other site}. So I deleted it and resubmitted.
