I love this look. What a great photo, and the colors are fantastic. Is this Vancouver? Hard to believe.

Love the processing

Great effect from the camera.
6 Aug 2009 5:51am
Great work, surrealistic a bit...
6 Aug 2009 6:02am
An interesting combination of so many elements.....it's all harmonious and interesting and held together by the strangely wonderful colors.
6 Aug 2009 6:13am
A lovely quote and I can see you are following it's advice:) Great picture...I like the vibrant, yet subdued color..the ducks are just wonderful!
6 Aug 2009 6:19am
great light and beautiful colors.......have a nice day

Great photo, I really like the blue in this picture and the framing is just perfect
6 Aug 2009 7:02am
I like the new lomo style of your pictures.
6 Aug 2009 7:16am
You find a very nice "different room" ! Love the tones, muted colors and that soft turquoise tonality that caresses the whole pic*
6 Aug 2009 7:18am
Blue is not only for chameleon !
6 Aug 2009 7:34am
Two worlds collide ! Great muted hints Sharon.

Haze of the big city, hard light, boats, hard life.. and in a midst of all that, a family of ducks.
Gives you some kind of proportions for our hectic lives.
I love the processing (?) here, wonderful frame!
@Ilan: Thanks Ilan :)
Yes, the processing was the process for slide film, E3 I think, instead of the usual C41 which is used for colour negatives.
beautiful combination of elements in this scene, all contrasting each other in various ways...very cool :)

Wow, amidst the heavy industrial background, the really eye catching part for me is the ducks! a bit of irony btw industrial v nature! <3
6 Aug 2009 10:13am
Cool shot, so many elements, yet they all go nicely together. Like the cityscape as the backdrop. Nice
6 Aug 2009 11:35am
Wonderful effect in this shot Sharon! It looks very retro ... '60's type..... Well done! ;-)
6 Aug 2009 11:38am
Hello ! I like the style of this photograph. You did something special for the colors ? It's look like vintage.
6 Aug 2009 11:59am
@Sophie Asselin: Thanks Sophie. The film was cross processed. Instead of a C41 process it was done as an E3 (I think that is correct) process which is generally used for slide film.
Love the colors in this. Feels like a 1970's image. Really wonderful!!!

A dense and effective composition. I love the colors washed out as if this picture was from another era. But the buildings in the background saying the opposite. J'aime beaucoup!
6 Aug 2009 12:49pm
really dig the lomo effect here, it made the scene look like some of the slums in asia.. :) cool stuff! :D
6 Aug 2009 1:15pm
I love the way you are not shy to experiment with different cameras, etc. I'm certainly not as adventurous. But I get the urge when I see what you produce - this is just sooo different - and special.
6 Aug 2009 1:16pm
Just love the effect from the Lumo + the processing on this is great 10/10
6 Aug 2009 1:54pm
Thank's to you Sharon, for your comments. Thank you so much :)
6 Aug 2009 2:11pm
great colors, contrast and mood (as always)
6 Aug 2009 2:42pm
Very nice work! I like the blue and the processing work on this!

"When it's time from work to go / and in my boat I row / 'Cross the muddy Ohio / When the evening light is falling" (Bonnie Prince Billy)
A great picture that reminds immediately of this beautiful song. Stunning panorama & light. This one got a special feel of being stuck & breaking out, the kind of melancholy I like a lot. All the best & safe travels, Fritsch.

Your new lomo is beginning to fly. And it actually flies high. I like ver much those buildings at the background contrasting with these ducks quitely swimming.
6 Aug 2009 4:10pm
Yes. Just yes!
6 Aug 2009 4:15pm
Marvelous composition. You seem to be having lots of fun with your new toy. This one is outstanding.
6 Aug 2009 4:44pm
I really love your unique style of presenting the world around you.
6 Aug 2009 6:04pm
wonderful scene and colors.
6 Aug 2009 6:22pm
atmoshpere vintage with this vignetting, wonderful "post traitement "
6 Aug 2009 7:35pm
Great capture, has a bit of everything- city and nature! Like the retro color and that flock of ducks cruising by.
6 Aug 2009 8:18pm
6 Aug 2009 9:13pm
Delicious colors, Sharon. I love this.
6 Aug 2009 9:32pm
Luvs that cross-process Blue..another great image on your excellent portfolio...bravo..!!
6 Aug 2009 10:14pm
it has everything about it that a good lomo shot should, and more.
6 Aug 2009 11:07pm
Had to double check what site I was at, lomo, an explosion of pale colours, the camera suits your frame of mind. :D
7 Aug 2009 12:52am
Gorgeous! There is so much here - the skyscrapers, the boats, the water, the birds, so much. Yet it feels tranquil and timeless. Wonderful!
7 Aug 2009 2:02am
Sometimes it's just unthinkable that there are two totally different places co-exist in a same city within short distance, short enough for them to see each other...
Do they wonder what's it like living in each others' world? Are they curious enough to visit each other? Or they just overlooking each other from a distance? One from inside a high tech "prison" behind glass curtain, the other from low down humid bug prone free world?.....
7 Aug 2009 2:10am
Love this colors and city contrasts! I wonder if those ducks care about building forest...?
7 Aug 2009 4:32am
Interesting processing, letting go of the highlights and shadows like that. The result is a very indiviualistic looking image.
7 Aug 2009 12:00pm
This is a beautiful scene.
7 Aug 2009 3:55pm
Your lomo creates interesting, strange effects! I like this!
8 Aug 2009 4:18am
Amazing eye for details and composition. I just love the ducks!
9 Aug 2009 10:38am
Interesting place. And Atwood is one of my favorite authors.
10 Aug 2009 7:43pm
very nice pictures out of your LOMO. A lot of people starting doing pictures with this old russian camera. Maybe I shoul also try. Problem is that I never developed myself colour pictures. How do you handle this? You do it yourself or you bring them for developing?
13 Aug 2009 1:13pm
@SePp: Thank you very much :)
No, I do not develop my own photos. This camera take 35mm film, so I take it to be developed to any film lab.
