I thought you all might enjoy this “new” picture of some of America’s finest.

That doesn't appear to be the Eagle's Nest and he's only a Captain there.

Cool pic though.

^^^^^^^^^^
That is how I received it. I imagine, now I think about it, that it is Berchtesgadan. I just referenced his final rank as a courtesy. And as mentioned, they deserved the rest.

When I look at this pic, I think, God bless them and all who sacrificed.



I'm sorry, I'm thinking about the cats again...

If that's a B&W image which has been colorized, someone did a superb job. I've looked at this image closely, and I think it might be a Kodachrome image. Colorized images usually have a false/unnatural appearance to their color scheme. The above image looks like Kodachrome to my eye.

Sure looks like a still of Band of Brothers to me rather than a colorized WWII photo of the real deal.

Nope. None of those guys were in the TV series. These gentlemen were in the original. Smile

Incredible work. I just spent nearly an hour looking at her recreations. I could probably spend another hour more. Super cool.

After reviewing the link Para provided which is amazing the picture posted by the OP is titled Band of Brothers at Eagles Nest. There is another pic of more of the members of Easy Company at Eagles Nest that appears to be on the same patio but a different angle.

I have no concept of the skill it takes to do that, but I really appreciate the people who do these things.

It really brings the picture to life and changes it for me. It makes it seem so much more real and not so far away. Black and whites almost seem so old that they aren’t relevant somehow. Adding color makes them feel so much more recent and relatable...at least for me.

I use Photo Shop for pic restorations that have creases, scratches and/or tears.

But to do what she does, no way!! It's way out of my league.

I guess I had never seen a picture of Dick Winters as a young man. I had no idea Damian Lewis was such perfect casting.

Masterful work.

She's a true artist. Like you, I never would have guess that was a colorized photo. It looks too natural, right down to hair color, etc.

Amazing...

Here's another from the same set:



#53 Dick Winters And His Easy Company (Hbo's Band Of Brothers) Lounging At Eagle's Nest, Hitler's Former Residence In The Bavarian Alps, 1945

It's definitely worth scrolling through all of them.
