    I found my old camera today and used photoshop to try and give some very ordinary pictures I had a little "artsy" feel to them with some cross processing or retro effects.

    Anyone like one of these? Feel free to tear them apart. Just a little experiment I had...

    It never hurts to experiment.

    The trick is recognizing when a experiment supports the hypothesis being investigated and when it disproves the hypothesis.

    I kinda like the effect you gave the 3rd image. Photo itself is a bit noisy but effect-wise looks cool.

    Thanks. I guess the experiment was to see if by a little processing (which I don't do much of at all other than a little contrast/color adjustments...good practice doing something more today!) I was able to make a photo I would normally ignore or discard, somewhat aesthetically pleasing.

    At least from my perspective, I think it actually works somewhat. I certainly think I like these more than the originals.

    I like the third one, keep playing around and it will work more and more often :)

    #3 looks cool. Can't say I care for the other two.
