rustin's pictures

I have a very cheap digital camera (the only one i could afford), it's a BenQ 5 megapix, no zoom or anything like that.. but it is very light and small.
i was never going to save enough to get a good one anyway, so I decided to settle for what I could.

Anyway, I was in Barcelona this summer, took well over 400 pictures, these are some of the ones that I really like:















opinions and suggestions are very welcome!

This is a near-perfect photograph.  Beautiful.
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

These two are, in my opinion, really nice.

I don't like the one with the girl by the fountain, or the food. They're not as visually interesting as the others, especially the first. That one is the clear winner.

Thanks polka and Chest. I like that one a lot too.

Crono, I didn't go to the Vicens, I was only there for a week, and that house was out of the way for me. I'll go there on my second visit to Barcelona, I love that city so much I'll go back, perhaps even live there. It was one of the most stimulating weeks of my life as far as, among many other things, sensibility to architecture goes.
But here is some more Gaudí for you to feast your eyes!

I liked the first and last ones from your first set.

good job.  the last three are really good.  you can try playing with the contrast in photoshop, process it a little bit, with proper contrast these images can be amazing.

Thx, I have to get photoshop, I don't have any image software. Only paint.

Also: I have lately become interested in lomography. I'm going to buy a Holga camera soon.

So these are from my first roll using my brand new Holga camera. I like them but not too much. The color flashes are fun. Developing is not cheap, though.

thanks, the last one was tricky to take because they don't like for people to take pictures in Christiania and I had to make sure that there was no one around but us.

These are some x-processed Holga pictures, also from the trip.
