This late-evening study combines a slow shutter and intentional zoom with the Kodak wide-angle lens to create a very soft effect. I mention this before I get complaints that this is too soft. That being said, tell me what you think. Is this too soft?

Hmmm...maybe a wee bit too soft for my liking, Tom. But it is an interesting effect.

Yes Tom it is, but that said I'm always making the scenes to hard so you can't please everone.

I was trying to go for the cultish "Holga" look. I'm not giving up yet. Thanks for looking.

It's a little soft, Tom But not all together unpleasing. At least you come up with ideas for shots, I just live vicariously thru you guys,

Maybe a wee bit too soft Tom. But don't stop trying and posting the results.

Ok, at the risk of beating this poor old horse a while longer, here is a B/W conversion of "Soft Water". Also, check out this link google "Holga".

The Holga is practially the world's cheapest medium-format camera (around $20) with wildly unpredictable results. Common "flaws" (they call them "features")include light streaks, severe vignetting, colour shifts, etc.It has quite a following among "art" photographers; some people own a bunch of them. Of course, a lot of people hate them. It's an acuired taste.

The B&W is better but still a wee bit too much softening for me. I believe I know what you mean by aquired taste. I've yet to eat Poke Salad and keep it down. My wife loves it!!
