: assume/presume that you can extrapolate a
: color from a B/W photo, right?
Hey Tim - jumping in late. This would be a bad assumption. The color information is GONE from this picture. Someone who is familiar with paint and photography as well as the US Navy paint systems (i.e. John Snyder) can make educated *guesses* but there is no way to extrapolate color from just a black & white photo.
Interpreting color from a black & white photo requires a lot of extra information and is rarely bullet proof.
