Idea

This will sound like blasphemy to some of the most purist shorpyites, but, have you tried colorizing the main subject of the photo, and leaving the background in grayscale? the contrast is, IMHO, very dramatic and artistic. Perhaps another version of this photo, colorized like that? You know, only the girl and the radio in color, and the rest in grayscale?

Great work as always, please keep it up, and thanks a lot for sharing it with us!
