    Have been looking at too much film street stuff on Flickr lately from people like this guy and this guy and most especially this guy which has inspired a love affair somewhat with reallllllly fast lenses and film. Bit of wandering brought me across a PS Lomo Action by Beau Hudspeth @ POTN and off the shelf B&W Film Coversion settings and contrast tutorials by Markus Hartel. Theres some Black and White Processing tutes on his page which apply well to even colour shots - found that if you increase contrast then mask off the highlights onto a new layer, you can jack up the contrast some more. Also watched a Joey Lawrence DVD courtesy of Wisie which unveiled the joys of High Pass Sharpening.

    Not so much an attempt to recreate exactly some of the styles posted above rather a few images using that action and my normal tweaking. A somewhat random selection of images from Sydney/Melbourne in my LR library.

    C&C More than Welcome, a bit stuck for subject matter but the focus on this set was the PP'ing. Hope if you haven't already seen a few of the links you get something out of them.

    Installing the lomo action now. High pass filter is a good tip, previously I'd apply USM on a duplicate and use opacity.

    I like this effect, it would look pretty good printed large and mounted. Be interesting to see what exactly the action does.

    Thanks for sharing

    I like the sky in the first one, but would have liked to see a little more detail in the trees to the left

    Number 2 is classic ronza

    I prefer your original processing Ronnie.

    Good to see your expanding the post side of photography and trying different techniques. As an aside I believe Joey Lawrence is actually younger than you Ronza. He's a very talented kid who's work I've followed and admired for the past couple of years.

    If you like his grunge stuff then you may be interested in a tute he put up here.

    cheers,
    bazz.

    No kidding eh. I know he posts stuff on DP Challenge and the grunge stuff where he drops in textures from other images is pretty neat.
