    Default Film/Lomo look

    Spent a while doing up these normal looking shots to give it that vintage film/lomo look....Love to hear you out on where I can improve....Are the photos a little too yellowish? Can composition be improved?

    I saw the exact same pic on yr other thread in "finding difficulty in PS" or some sort? From what I am looking at, I think you already gotten a hang of PS.

    Actually, I like the pic on the specs. It looks absolutely vintage (some would argue too vintage.. ha).

    The way you collage the pics, is there a message out there? It seemed abstract yet I couldn't connect the dots esp. on the building/ floor/ pineapple. It prob just pics where you practiced PP (that's the next thought).

    A suggestion, it would have been better if the collage is with portraits, the person with specs i.e. keep the specs pic and collage with a couple of self-portraits or whoever the specs belongs to. In that way, you can dictate the mood of the pics (fun/ lonely/ sad) OR you could simply leave the spec pic by itself.

    PS. Is that a view from room or office... its a GREAT view, I saw IR there. ha.

    I am using Elements 7 too.

    Thanks for the input bro! Yeah, the collage photo was a bit of a random PP thinggie as I was still practicing around with PS....Good idea of combing portraits... I'll try mug shots next time...

    Thanks. Btw, the photo isn't exactly BnW, it has a little tinge of yellow to it. Its not Sepia also. How can i achieve that with film?

    I love this "oldish" shot, especially the spec one! it looks jz great! The noise of the photo help to pull out the feeling as well. I wont said it is too yellow, and it should stay like that!

    by the way, what is the time when you took the shot of LRT? I cant really see someone inside!hehe^^

    LRT? You mean the train track photo? If I'm not wrong its around 12am? Can't really remember. I was at the railway station at Tanjong Pagar having supper when I took that....
