Black and white Vivian Maier photo colorized

Really pleased with how this colorization turned out. Original photo was taken by Vivian Maier in New York City in 1954. The restoration on this photo was minimal, just some noise reduction and a few items needing cleanup.

I gave this colorization a  subtle hazy feel rather than leave it over sharpened, this gave it more of a “summer heat” feel.  One item in a particular I enjoyed adding was the sunlight glimmer/rainbow effect in the water spray. 

The original black and white photo is below as well as my full size colorization. Please leave your comments or questions in the comment section below.

    Hi, someone pointed out that I colorized the same picture as you.

    It was very interesting to see your interpretation of it.
