My Photo of the Year 2011

This photo is by far my best photo in 2011. My Photo of the Year taken with Holga 120 GN and Lomography Redscale XR in Nijmegen, the Netherlands

I had some LomoMeetings throughout 2011 and I hope there will be more. One LomoWalk I had with Manja in Nijmegen, the Netherlands. Doing a lot High Quantity Multiple Exposure (HQME) in 2011, my glass lens Holga was loaded with Lomography Redscale XR. It was a sunny day and we walk along the water (the river Waal) when I wanted to get, following Golen Rule Number Five, as close as possible to the water. So i went down some stairs and saw Manja standing there. I did framing with that one to have the sun behind her head, but as you can see, the film has some light leaks that confuse a bit and make the impression, the sun is in the upper left part.
I took another photo with a different camera (Ricoh 500G), but without framing. It is still a good photo, but not as good as the redscale version.

In 2011 I tried more often to work with the sun and directly place it behind the subject:

Lots of LomoLove,

    I'm also a fan of shooting into the sun, silhoutetting some object or other, especially with redscaled film - love the fiery effects! Great shots.
