One Photo, Four Looks

The #1 reason I love living in our new condo looking out at the Lake? You guessed it ... the sunsets I see from our balcony!

The top photo is the original taken less than a week ago (no color enhancement at all). I decided to play with some actions in Photoshop Lightroom to see what I could come up with. I didn't want to take away for the beauty of the sunset, but see what the same sunset might have looked like if I had used various vintage cameras (2nd. photo - Holga, 3rd. photo - Polaroid, 4th. photo - Film camera).

Which one is your favorite and why? xo


  1. The first one, i love the warm color!

  2. Vicki! sigh. I am jealous of this!! In this case, I have to say the first and natural one is my fave, simply because the colors were so naturally beautiful and glowy. Second fave is the polaroid processing. It has a vintage feel without taking too much away from the whole image. The blue tint of it also makes it look a bit later in the dusk. Happy Halloween! :P Mary

  3. I love the third one ( Polaroid version), Immediately I can identify its you the one taking it :). The soft and pastel color is your trademark Vicki :).

  4. To me, it's the first and the last one! Because of the bright colours and the warmth of the evening light they are revealing. Must be lovely to have a view like this. I wouldn't be without my camera for a moment if I were you :p

  5. Wow, now that's a view I could get used to. What a beautiful sunset! And you know what, I actually think the unedited top photo is the best. All the colours have been captured so beautifully it really doesn't need any enhancement.


Thanks so much for your comments. Your thoughts, opinions, and ideas are important to me!
