Lomographers with their perfect 10


“Do you have your favorite perfect 10 photo?" She’s kinda lost what I talked about. I explained what does exactly it means, she seems get what I want and said “I can’t decide, help me”

Back to the meaning of perfect 10, actually it’s well known for the highest score in the sport of Gymnastics. The score 1.0 or full score will be brought to the great Gymnasts who give the world a very completely perfect performance.

It reminds me of our world named, lomography. I’d love to know which photo could be my/your perfect 10. But Lomography? No any rules at all! We’re easily impressed in every photos. No matter what those photos beautiful, turn out dark, too light leak, weird colors or clumsy doubles, you still give score 1.0! You might get tons of reasons or just fall in love with. That’s your perfect 10.

Well, it’s not really easy to figure out “perfect 10” among many brilliant photos here! But finally they gave me… Sit, drink and see their picked and lovely words

This one makes me surprise and stares for a long time. Above and below / Natural color and golden Looks like there has 2 part in the world but they can’t see each other. It’s reminds me one of my favorite movie ’’INCEPTION’’. No doubt, Dr.@hodachrome did great job :)

This image by Grazie has everything you want in a perfect Lomography landscape shot. Great light, terrific composition, fabulous colors and the glass of the Lubitel is probably the sharpest lens of the entire Lomography camera collection. This is easily one of my top ten favorite images of 2012.

Because I love the composition, colors, color strips mask and of course beautiful girl too! :D and feeling from this photo is just perfect! ♥

I love this picture so much because of the vivid colour, the contrasts between the sky/trees/water. the swan looks so natural and the ripples on the lake just make it jump out at me

photo by freckleface

I saw a lot of great pics, but this one is something special, different. Have some feelings inside, something mysterious, horror, dark side. I don’t know I just love it.

photo by ndroo

This was a very difficult task because I can’t say that I have just one favorite photo from fellow lomographers. There are too many amazing, fantastic, memorable shots. I could more easily pick one favorite from each person. To me, some elements that make a fantastic photo include creativity and colour (or maybe I should say contrast because I don’t want to exclude monochrome). When trying to decide which photo to select, I decided to pick a photo that immediately captured my attention when I saw it and inspired me to attempt the tipster that resulted from it. The photo I selected is by @ndroo who I believe is a genius for thinking of this idea. The reason I am so drawn to it is because it is eye catching, dramatic, beautiful, colourful, and made me think about how he achieved this technique.

I’m speechless when i see this photo. This is beautiful. It’s like a place between dream and reality. I don’t know how did he make it ? It’s perfect. I think I can’t make it. It’s masterpiece!

photo by hodachrome

This picture just proved that shooting film has endless possibilities. Dolphins flying out of the sky and finally reached the surface of the ocean is literally insane but lomography brought it to reality. Giving this shot a perfect 10. Hodachrome inspired me to shoot lomographs that are close to unimaginable.

This photo is so stunning, a true art, I remember the first time I saw it, just keep staring at it and simply lost in my imagination. this photo is also one of reasons why I fall in love with lomography.

photo by astria007

The Bride and the groom express their love by the beach. It makes feel that have only them on the world. Mood, tone and weird-colored of picture this make it romantic feeling

OMG is only a word I could say when they sent me their best picked. :D Now, i’m thinking about how hard for this challenge. Do you have your own perfect 10 shot on your mind? Share me, pls (Maybe it’s the same of mine!)

Big thanks for your answers, my friends. I do agree with all of you! albeelee, dakadev_pui, sobetion, mafiosa, emkei, jbeischer, arurin, lomonina, clickiemcpete, superkulisap

Big thanks for your inspiration: hodachrome, astria007, grazie, lazybuddha, freckleface, satomi, ndroo, michaelback, warning

    Good idea for a blog entry! Just because I think it is especially hard to take a great photo on multiple-lens cameras, I would have to pic this photo by @philippe-machado as my perfect 10: www.lomography.com/homes/philippe_machado/photos/6287623. Plus, I have a soft spot for dogs.

  18. 134340

    @twizzer88 thanks my friend. I really love your perfect 10! What a lovely and funny dog haha :D

    Great idea. It's a lot of fun reading the great lomogrophers writing about the nice fotos. However, I find it really impossible to pick 10 fotos I like best in the past year, if you asked me.. heihei ... welldone Pung...^..^

  24. realrampage

    great idea, so post here mine ;)
    I cannot choose only 10 , but , for me what makes of a photo, a perfect photo, it's that at the same time you HATE the photographer and you want to stop the photo because you will never reach this level But you also LOVE that person because she gives you the inspiration and the envy to make thousands of photos to reach this perfection.

    great idea for a blog! i really like the shots chosen here. me personally i started a collection of my personal shots on this platform. unfortunately not all user i ask submit their pictures so it´s incomplete. but it´s damn hard to just pic one of them. and honestly i think it has something to do with mood. so it´s a funny coincidence that atm i would pick a photo of the guy leaving his comment just before me @realrampage and it´s this one: www.lomography.com/photos/collections/35-personal-collectio… - light, shadow, mood, grain is as i commented: welles-style (for me). if i move to a bigger flat i´ll ask for a large format print i guess ;o)
