My Brother's House
The first photo is as it came straight out of the camera. The second one is an edited version where I lowered the color value through a desaturation process then used blend modes and sharpening to get the effect that I wanted. The third version is the result of a Photoshop tutorial I found on the web and converted it for use in Paint Shop. The process digitally duplicates an effect from a cheap Russian camera called Lomo photography. Rather than try to explain the effect here, you can read about it at the site where the tutorial is found. I'm not sure how effective I was at producing a true Lomo photography effect but I enjoyed trying.
I like each of these versions of the photo for different reasons but mostly because I got to spend time playing in PSP.
