    Thumbnailed!

    Nothing to get excited about. Just tooling around with my somewhat recently purchased Holga. Would have posted some sooner, but I haven't really gotten much I liked from this camera, so far. Any comments welcome.

    I really like the flare effects on the plastic lens.

    Not much to say about this. I just liked the lighting.

    A happy accident. I still keep screwing up with this camera and shoot two photos on one frame. This time it turned out interesting.

    Nice and simple. Almost too simple. I still like it. Kinda gloomy.

    Not sure what I'm including this. I kinda like the contrast of the snow on the trees.

    My favorite color: On a very bright and clear day, before noon, go outside and look straight up. I love that deep, deep blue. Kinda caught a bit of that in this.

    Fun with double exposures.

    Well composed. Excellent use of the lens flare and hot spots!!!

    You ended up with some good stuff! I agree with orie - the tire shot is excellent!! :thumbup:

    You have a definite light leak, it is showing on every frame along the top. I like lens flare, too, but I do try to avoid light leaks by running black cloth tape all around the camera back.

    Your vignetting is wonderful - better than on my camera. They say each Holga is a little different and you really seem to have a good one! :D

    I actually found a site that said how to fix the triangle top light leak, which I have so so badly on mine, like he has here. I always fully tape and it doesn't help that one at all. I need to find that site again and try it out.

    If you find that site again, please share. I haven't yet tried taping around the outside of the case. All I've done for that was put a layer of electrical tape on the lip the back plate secures onto. It's a pretty snug fit. Is the leak comming through the winder?

    And thanks, everyone, for the comments. :)
