Is the person just guessing at the color or is there something int he detail of the black and white image that tells you it was a certain color? Or even the shade of the color?
I was reading one guy's explanation of it before, and I think it's a lot of research. The subject in a picture was wearing a medal, and he spent hours researching that medal. Very cool job. A WHOLE lot of work.
I imagine a lot is guess work, too.
