Anybody can use Photoshop, but doing a good job remains a craft. Professional colorist from Brazil, Marina Amaral, doesn't just click-and-drag. Driven by her burning obsession with history, Marina does extensive research to make her colorizations as realistic as possible, too.

Amaral has played with Photoshop since she was about ten. In 2015, she was scrolling a history forum on the internet and discovered colorized photos of World War I. Instantly inspired, Amaral started restoring and putting color into photos that were originally black and white. This allows people to experience the past through a whole new perspective. "Each photo is made to be realistic by recognizing the value behind each one of them, respecting and preserving their stories, paying attention to the finer details and maintaining their original essence."

"Every completed work has gone through long and in depth research, and is supported by the opinions of experts in each particular area if necessary, to faithfully reproduce the original colors and atmosphere," she adds. "My work ranges from simple portraits to complex and detailed images, taken from various historical periods covering a wide range of topics." Continue scrolling to enjoy Marina's wonderful work.

A rather intriguing pair of photos given Monet's reputation for the study of light and its colors; the world then who couldn't see his art in person can only see black and white images, completely nullifying the genius of his artistry.

"Lover of the Russian queen," NO. Tsarina (which isn't the same thing as a queen, Btw) Alexandra was a hyper-religious prude and wouldn't have dreamt of such a thing, not least because she was devoted to her husband. Rasputin's influence over Alexandra arose from his "miraculous" healing of her son's hemophilia crises.

Ummm and when did he become tsarina's(she wasn't called empress here, it was the tsar and tsarina) lover exactly? Last I checked, the official version is he was a...mysterious man who apparently possessed outstanding charisma or hypnosis or something, being basically a peasant he made the tsar listen to his every advise and supposedly(I'm inclined to believe it was what the tsar family believed or wanted to believe rather than medical facts) could help the tsar's son with his hemophilia. His story is actually extremely interesting - for example, quite a few descriptions describe him entirely differently, with blue/brown/green eyes, light/dark hair etc. He also apparently had quite a high leveled immortality skill because supposedly he's been poisoned, shot and then drowned. And only then he finally died.

Derpy Bob

All true except for the death story, which appears to have been made up by courtiers of the time in order to ensure nobody would ever again take up his position, as they were trying to imply he was demonic. Which is fair enough, considering how royally he screwed up the Tsarina and her family

In case you're wondering, the inscription on the shell means "The snake is smoking", which was adopted as the motto of the Brazilian Expeditionary Force along with the moniker "Cobras Fumantes" (Smoking Snakes) after a popular saying that "...it's easier for a snake to smoke a pipe than the BEF to go to war". Well, the snakes were definitely smoking in Italy that year...

Cunard's four screw arrangement was always better than White Star's choice of just three for the Olympic class, due to the fact a rudder is far less efficient if it moves in the wake of a propeller than if it moves in the relatively calm waters between the screws. I mean, sure, the Mauretania class had a host of other problems, like stability issues and vibration from it's turbines, but there you have it. Ironically, if the roles had been switched between the Titanic and Lusitania, each of those ships would have dealt better with the other's disaster - Titanic had transverse coal bunkers so a torpedo hit in the same place would not have set off a coal-dust explosion, and Lusitania's propulsion and steering arrangement would have made a glancing blow with the iceberg a lot less likely. It's debatable however if once hit in the same manner as Titanic, Lusitania would have fared better, because she had taller bulkheads but also longitudinal ones, meaning she listed severely as she sank.
