    I like them both, and think the softness could have worked for both subjects but they are too soft/blurry for me

    'Tis the nature of the holga my friend. I chose this camera for these because of it's softness. I was going for a kind of squinting abstract-ish comparison....

    I understand the effects and softness and vignetting of the holga but I have seen pictures from holga that have some sharpness to them, and I am saying that I would like them a little sharper (which a holga is capable of), and you can agree or disagree as you like

    I understand your opinion. Sharpness is sometimes completely overrated in my opinion.
    Therefore, I will choose to disagree.
    Thank you for your thoughts,

    I like the field one the best, but they do work as a pair very nicely.

    The first one is pretty cool.

    I looked through your flickr, you've got some real interesting, thoughtful work. Nice.

    I really like #1.

    EDIT: By the way, thought I should mention that I love your diptych self-portrait. I remember when you posted it, but I couldn't remember if I commented on how much I liked it. This one: http://www.flickr.com/photos/crawdaddio1/2091887882

    I think the pictures need some of this...




    Other than that I really like them both. :D
