    Has an old school feel to it. Nice.

    Thanks for the comment.

    The photo was shot with a Lumix GF-1 and a 25mm Holga lens.

    I really like the old skool feel as well. The grain works in nicely in this regard.

    Did you use a holga lens or is this all done with pp?

    To each his own, but I really don't get the whole Holga thing. I spent a couple of thousand dollars on a camera with a really excellent sensor, and sharp, contrasty lenses. I don't want to take pictures that look like the ones I took with my $10 box camera in 1964.

    Meyer the reason It looks great to me is because we don't see this anymore. Not that i ever did anyway (I'm too young;-) But it's different

    Like Gary said :biggrin:......It was shot with an $18.00 plastic Holga lens.

    After that, very little PP work was done on it- just basic cropping, dodging, and burning.

    In the end, money is irrelevant as to how a photographer shoots and as to what they shoot.

    I've shot just about every kind of camera you can think of over many years. A lot of them were very expensive. So what?

    At the end of the day, it is the image that matters and the emotion that it elicits from the viewer.

    I find that I do not shoot with my Holga lens nor my pinhole cap lens very much. It is a look that can become very cliche' very quickly. But for certain subjects at certain times, well, it just seems to fit the bill.

    I want to thank everyone for their comments.

    Pinhole, Holga, LensBaby, Fisheye, are one trick ponies, to be used sparingly otherwise, it is more of the same.
