Lifeguard Shack at Jones Beach - Vintage Colorize

Fuji S3 Pro with 18-55 kit lens from Nikon D40. Every once in awhile I cycle through my old photography magazines and discard the ones where I finally understand the techniques discussed, still keep the ones I do not understand yet, and try the ones I am finally capable of doing. This was featured in a Peterson's Photographic issue as "hand-coloring" or "vintage colorizing." The technique is simply blending a B&W layer with a color layer. I kind of like the effect. Adding vignetting made this a bit too muddy so it was left out along with sharpening.
