    Lomo Effect

    I used a Nikon D50 for this shot, then I two years later I played with in Gimp looking for an alternative way to do HDR. I came up with the Lomo Effect . Please let me know what you think:

    Very nice. Reminds me of summers when I was a kid.

    Nice image...lots of good color and well framed but I'm not seeing it as HDR. Perhaps I could if the image was larger. Could you explain the "lomo effect," I'm not aware of it.

    Hi Chuck
    here is the definition of Lomo:
    Lomography emphasizes casual, snapshot photography. Characteristics such as over-saturated colors, off-kilter exposure, blurring, "happy accidents," and alternative film processing are often considered part of the "Lomographic Technique.
    Typically, Lomo owners will take color slide film (E6) and have it processed as standard 35mm film (C41). This results in over saturation of colors and at times some freaky results. All of which make Lomo as special as they are.

    Thank you Wings. I had never run into the term before. I should have just Googled it but I thought it might have been a made up term for something you were doing. It appears that much of what was 35mm Lomography is acomplished with SLR's and post processing today. You image qualifies as a Lomo style but it's better than most, at least as I see it.....certainly no happy accident.

    I like the way the over saturated look is still kind of real too. So many over saturated images look fake or very surreal (I still like that though) but this still has a natural look despit such high vibrant colours. I love the water btw.

    Me too, I was in search of a vivid look with out looking unreal. I do tweak the Lomo effect to achieve this look.
