Digital Lomography pinhole lens

I bought a Holga 60mm lens and a pinhole 25 mm lens for my Olympus E -620. Was going round the local harbour taking shots on film with B&W 120 film too.

Here are are my first results with the pinhole

No1 Is a couple of fishing boats

Not sure about the pinhole shots, but I do like the Holga ones on your Flickr stream.

There was a pinhole thread on here a year or so ago if you want to search for it.

They're a bit soft in the corners!

Seriously, they create a nice mood of a bygone age. Should think they would also look good warm toned or in Sepia B&W. Flaring light sources within the frame might look good too.

I am not sure I see the softness in the corners

I will look at doing some processing as these are straight out of the camera.

They are just for fun.
