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?

Cheers,

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

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

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 http://www.holgamods.com/gallery/gallery.htmlor 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!!
