    Had some photo's I thought were suitable for these tricks, so I've had some fun hours in paintshop as you might be able to tell :) Hope you like

    ( - edit - I apologize for the poor quality.. lost a lot of the origional sharpness due to scanning..)

    Our Cat, Matz. Coloured eyes, and a tiny bit of duotoning

    I've been searching of a grave with just one boucket (sp?) of flowers in this colour for some time. Until I saw this, It even had a beautiful tree in the background :) the b&w grave stands for the people that have past away, the flowers stand for that these persons will forever live on in their family and friend, on that they will never be forgotten..

    Pier at a lake nearby the village I live, again coloured water and duotone.. (orry for that vignetting.. I added on a suncap.. but at 28mm the edges came in view.. I did't notice that until I got the prints..:confused:)

    Let me know what you think


    Cheers,
    Niels

    A nice array of shots, but, with the first make a selection of the child , then blur out some of the distracting background, the vignetting in the last does not sit right for me, it looks as though the lens hood or a filture was cutting into the picture area, if it was intended then it should be more suptle just a gradual blur.

    erniehatt, I couln't help the vignetting.. well I could have.. but I didn't noticed that the suncap/blocker/thing, whatever its called in english, was visable on the edges. I had the wrong tingy for the wrong lens.. I'm sorry.. (its shows on like, 5 photo's on this particular film..:( i'm gonna throw that thingy away..)

    thank you for your comments Enriehatt and Mentos :)

    That feel I said you have with your photos, still there, still good. It's a sort of Beach Boys feel. Erm, if that makes sense.
