Tata Vislevskaya has some incredible pictures of the Swiss Alps. This is something I really enjoy; shots of epic landscapes like this, paired with this style of processing. I love seeing the blacks turn to purples and blues (especially in the mountains on that first one). The rest of her series, especially the ones of Iceland, really spurs the travel bug in me. I’ve always really wanted to go to Reykjavik.

I love this style of photography, almost a Holga feel but pretty sure she shoots digital.

Beautiful, indeed, but I’m almost getting sick of this type of processing. It almost feels like one of those short-lived fads, like HDR, where the first few are great to look at, the following wave is okay, then after that you get sick to your stomach as if you’ve eaten too much candy.

yea but HDR is a million times more annoying to look at than the whole cross-processed/holga look, which is pretty timeless i think…

I personally love this type processing when used at the right time. Like here when it helps take your mind out of your head and into the mountains for a little daytime dreaming. Things like the amount of jobs i have to work and the bills i still need to pay can fade away if only for a few seconds. thanks for the share.
PS I am glad the folks at Aeolas allow you to make great posts still. Or have you been set free by now?

there’s nothing ‘timeless’ about a faux effect meant to mimic not a pre-meditated aesthetic decision, but a product of technology.
these are simply overprocessed. They have potential, but it would require a much more delicate approach to post-processing and more sparing use of effects.

i am trying to figure out how many exposures are on the last one? 3?
