Famous Times Square Kiss in Color
Black and white version of this photograph by Alfred Eisenstaedt. It was taken on V-J Day in Times Square and was published in Life magazine in 1945.
Reddit user mygrapefruit colorized the photo using Photoshop CS 5 on a Wacom tablet. “I found some vintage postcards of Times Square to figure out the color of the buildings and some signs,” she said. “The rest of the colors I guessed by using common sense.”

I remember walking past this wall and seeing the side of a decaying building. Now it’s an impressive work of art. A group of large murals have been popping up along the High Line in recent weeks and they’re all very well done. This one is the most colourful that I’ve seen so far. It’s a much more pleasant image to look at rather than another billboard with an advertisement for something I have no interest in.
