Cool, but on #5 he changed the position of the guys left arm - now it looks like he has an arm coming out of his chest.

They are two different, but similar photos, from the same photoshoot. As are the two Charlie Chaplin photos. They look alike but are slightly different.

#16 the tattoo's were not color in the 1900's, they were blackish blue.

Personally I've always thought that b&w photos were classy. Colorized photos feel lessened like they've lost some of their texture and feel.
