Thanks for the Happy Advent wish!

I liked a lot your colorizations, and the last one is great...In it, you did Anastasia's legs noticiable! I've never been able to see them in this pic before you colorized it.

Wow, you haven't? There are two versions of that picture:
http://nd01.jxs.cz/771/582/780cf4e022_44826209_o2.jpg the better known one
and: http://nd01.jxs.cz/000/778/a50ed4e21a_44826154_o2.jpg the one I coloured
(Photos courtesy of  http://otma.blog.cz)
There are very subtle differences to them, one being Anastasia's legs. I prefer the second picture because it seems more relaxed and intimate.
Thank you for your kind words, it means a lot to me!

THanks! I've only seen the first version of the pic. I'm happy you also posted the black and white version of the one you've colorized. There, Anastasia's leg is very distinct.

Your welcome. Have you notice the caption at the bottom, circa.1910? Aren't those things funny when you know that it was 1913? Anyway, here is a new one:

Just want to say how everyone has improved on their coloring skills.  Well done to you all.

Lovely!  :) For me all these gorgeous colorings seem to bring out things in the photos I never noticed much before, such as cute little toddler Anastasia's shoes. The colored photos also seem to make the Romanovs more accessable, if that makes sense, because they're in color like present day photos.  It makes me realize more, "The little Imperial children actually sat on that sofa, actually smiled a little for the camera just like that, over a hundred years ago." It just makes them more real, I suppose.

I totally agree!
Here is my first ever colouring, redone for Christmas. I think I've improved, don't you? :)

nicely done and cute!! ...I quite agree. Colouring the photos, or in my case, painting from  them , causes one look more deeply at the whole photo and bring many details to our attention that usual go unnoticed. It becomes a treasure hunt and a big part of the fun!=)

Wow you really brought out the beautiful silk in those dresses. Royalty doesn't just express itself in jewels...but in such clothes. Really the embroidery is almost like jewels!

I totally agree! Those are beautiful! I haven't plucked up the courage to do them yet.
