    An incredible artist has taken some of the defining historical moments of the past 150 years years and brought them to life in 'colourised' photos.

    From a portrait of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria before he was assassinated in 1914, to a Vietnamese Mahayana Buddhist monk burning himself to death at a busy intersection in Saigon in June 1963, Brazilian artist Marina Amaral has transformed photos from around the world.

    The stunning collection of images capture emotive moments from both World Wars, painting a grim picture of what life was like on the front line.




    Iron Chancellor: Under Otto Von Bismarck, pictured here in 1871, Germany became a modern, unified nation. His grand gold attire is brought to life in this colorized photo.

    Taking shelter: Soldiers from the 36th Armoured Infantry Regiment, 9th Infantry Division at Geich, in Germany, on 11 December 1944, sit beside a tank. The 9th Infantry Division was among the first U.S. combat units to engage in offensive ground operations during World War II.

    Fighting back: This photo was taken during the Warsaw Uprising - a major World War II operation by the Polish resistance Home Army to liberate Warsaw from Nazi in 1944. August 1 marked the 72th anniversary of the battle.

    No Man's Land: This retouched picture - originally from a 1928 film - shows a French soldier falling after being shot one hundred years ago, on February 21, 1916, after the first shots were fired in the battle for the French fortress town of Verdun.

    Hands up: A German soldier is pictured being captured by a Soviet soldier during the Battle of Moscow, on December 1, 1941.

    Historic day: The coronation of Queen Elizabeth II as monarch of the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the Union of South Africa, Pakistan, and Ceylon took place on 2 June 1953. The vibrant red and gold hues of the ceremony are brought to life in this photo.

    [​IMG]


    Regal: A fourteen-year-old Queen Elizabeth II, when she was a mere princess, is pictured here sat by the window with her nose in a book.

    Mountaineering: President Theodore Roosevelt and naturalist John Muir are pictured on Glacier Point in Yosemite National Park 1906.

    Murdered: Nicholas II of Russia was the last Emperor of Russia, ruling from 1 November 1894 until his forced abdication on 15 March 1917. In the spring of 1918, Nicholas and his family were executed by the Bolsheviks.

    Gangster: Alphonse Gabriel 'Al' Capone was an American gangster who attained fame during the Prohibition era as the co-founder and boss of the Chicago Outfit. His seven-year reign as crime boss ended when he was 33 years old.

    [​IMG]



    The Red Baron: Manfred von Richthofen (1892-1918) earned widespread fame as a World War I ace fighter pilot. He was credited with 80 kills before being shot down, his legend as the fearsome Red Baron enduring well after his death.


    [​IMG]


    Assassinated: Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria was born on December 18, 1863, in Graz, Austria. In 1900, Ferdinand gave up his children's rights to the throne in order to marry a lady-in-waiting. In 1914, a Serb nationalist assassinated him. One month later, Austria declared war on Serbia and World War I began.

    So, I guess Queen Elizabeth was never a fuckable hottie, even in her teens.

    Oh you are wrong there, very wrong. She was quite beautiful until she reached mid 40s. But then, like most people, her looks started to decline. Give her a break, she is in her 90s now.

    After thinking overnight about your original comment, I concluded that my answer was a bit off. I still think she was pretty in her youth, but as most men I took your comment about being "fuckable" to mean her looks. Thinking back on my own life the most "fuckable" woman I EVER had sex with was not all that good looking. She was OK, and nothing I would be embarrassed to be seen with. But on a scale of 1-10 with 10 being best, when it came to sex, she was easily a 30. But she was also a bit nutty.

    I have no idea what HRH is like in her personal life.

    Nice effort, but not entirely a fan of how oversaturated the colors are.
