Only relatively recently have I been able to purchase scans or make scans myself from the original transparencies at NARA, that I could really see how much variance there is in color images.
How "nice" or close to original colors, is always a guess and is impacted by how well the original transparency was processed, or has held up over the years (some transparencies fade or completely turn red, but Kodak film has held up pretty well), or whether the scanned image was made from the original transparency or a copy print or a copy transparency.
Here is this same image scanned at NARA from an original 4x5 transparency in 80-GK collection. I don't know where Getty got this image, but the USN/NARA have the rights to it. I had to reduce the size to allow it to be posted online. This doesn't do justice to the full size scan.
BY THE WAY ... the date of these images is wrong, they were taken on 21 July 1942, based on that USS BARKER is in one of the series of photos and she was at this port only on that day to refuel.
Same image from History 101 (scanned from a third generation 35-mm copy slide);
Same image from the "old" NHC website (scanned from a color print made from an internegative copy of the original transparency some 30 years ago);
If you think this is a fluke, in a previous discussion on this subject in another thread, I posted several images of the SAME color image (80-G-K-555) taken in July 1942 of USS SAN JUAN (at the same location) as reproduced by different sources to show that color photography and reproduction are not constant.
History101 version of the image ... scanned like all of History101 images from 35-mm copy slides which were made from the original 4x5 transparencies at NARA years ago ... image available on their website or can be scanned by anyone at NARA.
NHHC version of the image ... scanned from color print made from the original 4x5 transparency at NHHC before they were transferred to NARA ... image available on the NHHC website.
Finally purchased by me, scan of the same 4x5 original transparency at NARA ... this is a reduced size version of the image I purchased for posting on-line.
