    I like the square format and vignetting of a Holga, so that image wins for me.

    The top isn't bad, just lacks a little drama. :D

    Holga all the way! The flat plane of water looks so much better. and I prefer the composition with the extra tree top going out into the sky.

    The holga definately has the holga look... but what did you do to convert the d70 image to black and white? All the elements blend together and it seems very dark.

    I removed the color using photoshop. Probably could have been better had I spent more time on it. An interesting aspect of these two images, is when printed, the Nikon photo is far superior to the Holga.

    Did you just convert it to grayscale or desaturate?
    Try the channel mixer... I think you'll find the results much better.

    Did you have a polarizer on the holga? Or a red filter or something? The reflection on the water is intense in the D70 one but nonexistant in the holga one. Maybe the plastic lens is a polarizer?
