The Leaf Rapids Electric Company

I thought I'd try my hand at colourizing a black and white photo, but this particular image turned out to be a little too daunting; I'd need to create dozens of layers to cover all the different bits of clothing. But in the process of failing, I discovered that I could make the people in the photo (or at least those in the back row) look like cardboard standees. And then I figured out that I could use gradients and blending options to make our grade two class look like we were guest stars on The Electric Company. Sing it with me: "We're gonna turn it on...we're gonna bring you the power..."
