I spent a vast amount of time today faffing about with Photoshop. In fact, I don't think I did much else (other than play Shadow of the Colossus) but it turned out to be very worthwhile. I started stringing together some actions and processes I already have to create a look that sort of, kind of, mimics the look of Lomo/Holga toy cameras. Either way, I like it a lot, and spent several hours trying it out on all sorts of shots from my 'archive' - many of which I should have deleted ages ago as I considered them unuseable.

Here's a shot that I always liked, but elements of it were technically messy and didn't satisfy me. Now, however, those elements complement the effect, I think. Many more of these to come in the absence of new shots!
