    Sure they are Shuultz.I do that much photo searching on the net with google, I am always on the look out since I started this thread.Yes they are not always perfectly aligned thats why I use Photoshop for a little manipulation here and there on the then photo's.The resolution size is the key.Some just fall in place, while other take more work.

    my graphical works were done from classic photos, which are manipulated and redone with some combination of couple filters in the PhotFiltre 9.x.x - i am an experienced user, i create in it game skins and weapon rterxtures for CS.

    Are you interesting enough to see my works? i think you will like them ;P

    Are you sure those German soldiers are real? To me they seem like reenactors...

    But nevermind. When you take a closer look you can tell that they're probably just a part of the rest of the reenacting group, and have been photoshopped in from another modern photo rather than a historical one...

    They are reenactors, right...
    but they saw like came from the past to today's world.

    that photo was modificated to have a feeling that the people in background are from today, but the german soldiers are from the past. something like past and now were mixed together.

    I got motivated since my last post.The village Wirtzfeld. The picture shows US forces in the process of evacuating this village as the German spearheads approach in the Battle of the Bulge ,northern section. Pictured are a column from the US 99th Inf Div (372nd Field Artillery Batt) on the lane that will take them to Elsenborn Village 6km away.

    Brilliant pictures. Would never believe that places still stand even after being half destroyed.

    Keep them coming!
