There was a time when there was no such dream as an actual color photograph.
So, photographs could be "tinted" by hand to boost the realism. Some of these old photographs are quite artistic.
Others, well, not so much ...
This one at the right, is lightly tinted and
has tiny "jewels" (probably glass chips)
added to the dress.
This one is pretty good. One could almost believe it is a color photograph. Only the repeated colors of the background objects give it away.
Here is another good one. Very carefully done in muted tones resulting in a very lifelike portrait.
This one is 7 X 9.5 inches.
For the above photograph, the artist only used one color. And just for the socks and hats.
An budding surrealist no doubt.
Can't get enough?

Here are a few.
You will probably say "Ooh..." at least once.
