Help me. I'm addicted. I can't stop making these. It's got to the point where when I take my camera out it's almost entirely with the express intention of getting a shot that will work well with this effect.

I've been applying it to all sorts of things that were lying around in my 'archive' (including a lot of shots from nights out that wouldn't normally get processed) and have discovered that it works best on:

- simple subjects with focal depth to them
- images at an angle
- slightly overlit shots, ideally with elements of daytime sky in them.

Having looked around a bit more for actual Lomo shots I think my version somewhat overeggs the cake a little, but I really love that saturated, imperfect look.
