    well, these pictures don't have usual colors....
    those with the people have like more "cold" colors, they seem more green...
    i was wondering what kind of filter was used...

    could just be a very poor quality scan of some poorly printed prints or a very cheap badly setup camera - do you know anything about the shots. I have seen this type of print from a disposable camera and sent off to some very cheap mail order processing.
    the last one i think is just a very low powered flash shot

    The thrid one you could probably acheive using levels. #2 Looks like a camera body flash. #4 Also looks like a camera body flash. #1 Looks pretty out of the box except if thoose walls where originally white, then maybe the white balance was set to be un-naturally cold.

    Well, to me...#1 kinda looks like tungsten film shot in daylight, but it's more likely to be slide film cross-processed, and color-corrected when printed. Usually I see strong, solid areas of cyan...(like in the left of photo 1), and an overall greenish tint. Shots 2 and 3 DEFINATELY look like cross-processed slide film (you can tell by the very high contrast, and blown out highlights on their foreheads etc). X-processed negative films turn out as slides...lower-contrast, and often bluish.

    The problem with cross-processing is that the results are very different depending on the brand/type of film you are using. See this link: http://webmonkey.wired.com/webmonkey/99/23/index3a_page4.html?tw=design

    #4 (and maybe #3 also) could be just a very high contrast and highly saturated film like Agfa Ultra. Try that Agfa film out, I can assure you, that you will get results like that. In harsh daylight, it has a tendency to totally blackout shadow areas. I especially like the look of it with daylight flash on the subject, and flourescent lighting in the background (emphasizes the lime-green color) .

    Just do an engine search (keywords: "cross processing"), and you'll see plenty of images similar to these. You might also be interested in this webpage: (http://www.quarlo.com) Lots of examples of cross-processed images (in the archive).
