1943 Time square colorized.
(original B&W by John Vachon)
This was my first colorized photograph.
I really wanted to capture the feeling of a rainy day in New York.
The red light was something I added to give a focal point to the picture.
It was only later that I'v learn that the traffic lights in NY where tinted during the war in fear of air raids.

I used this colored video as reference materials for my colorization.
