Another view of the iconic green NBC building at Sunset Blvd. and Vine Street in Hollywood. A 1940 Lincoln Continental V-12 convertible dominates the foreground. A Southern Comfort billboard is seen on the right, and the Palladium and CBS Studios with KNX Radio can be seen in the distance.

The black and white photograph is deconstructed and reimagined as a living color composition by award-winning digital artist Melvin Hale. Hale discovered this talent in May 2006, initially focusing on colorizing exquisite vintage black and white postcard street scenes, which he collects. From there he has moved on to portraits and other historic subjects. 

Look for the red Live Preview banner in the lower right hand corner of this screen. It might take a second or two to appear. Click on that, and you can manipulate this image on ten sample walls, or even on a photo of your own wall! Directions on How to use the Live Preview are available here. Have fun playing with something really useful.
