Being new to this challenge means that I have some catching up to do, so I started with a simple image from my afternoon walk along the beach.
I loved the colours in the driftwood in the original photograph, but really wanted to see where the effects could take this with my desktop photo editor.
After applying a black and white effect with a graduated tint, I tried a Lomo filter through Picasa.
Week 1 – Black and White
At this point, I am still going with the original as the better of the two…..
Week 2 – Lomo -ish Filter (via Picasa)
Iwas pretty pleased with the Lomo effect! Intensity, drama and saturation but next week I will try to define the driftwood more.
