...are not perfectly focused, perfectly exposed, not sharp, etc.

In the world of super sharp lenses, Photoshop, 100GB camera's etc., does anyone have any examples

Its an extensive and interesting collection of images from others.
Not sure how this connects with the purpose of the Critique board.

I'm not sure either.

Where would you have posted it?

Maybe B&W, as it is largely a monochrome (toned) collection

As to the images being unsharp ... I found them mostly to be sharp, just a lot of selective focus/dof control and or other post-capture creative manipulations.

Thought about that but, I thought that was just a coincidence. My question is inclusive to color too. I just don't have too many examples.

Anywho...

I guess it will be OK here.

On second thought ... Post Processing & Printing, as these seem to favor post processing in a variety of realms from developer choices to paper to toning, etc.

Basically, asking if anyone had examples of images that were not "perfect" in today's digital world.

More of a commentary. Seems like everyone here is striving for the sharpest lens, the most resolution, the best auto focus, etc.

Looking for examples of interesting pictures despite not passing today's technical antiseptic clinical scrutiny.

Oh, I'm sure there are a great many of them. Unfortunately, finding examples seems to be a fairly difficult chore. I don't have good image recall by selection criteria, nor do I save large sets of favorite images. Makes it hard to search for such examples. However, for example, virtually virtually all the old pictorialist work would fail the modern photo esthetic demands. Think Edward Steichen and Alfred Stieglitz - great names who did excellent work with a different artistic taste.

That's cool. Thanx for chiming in though.

Does this qualify as out of focus, imperfect comp, shot with old lens on old camera?

M645 150/2.8 A on Kodak SLR/c ... originally underexposed several stops, in case you're wondering.

(apologies to those of you who recall this)
There is a strong following out there in lomo photography, other toy camera images

Good example Scott.

Lens Babies too ...

Well, if you're looking for "interesting" but not technically antiseptic, then the Alt Forum is the place to go. While the "criteria" for the Alt Forum is other than Canon/Nikon, there is a plethora of images from lenses of yore (& present) that have "character" beyond that of the clinical antiseptic.

I'd recommend starting with the Alt Images Thread. You'll find literally thousands of such images in this and other threads (and archives) in the Alt Forum of such "non-clinical" works and discussions about the glass (and people) that produces them.
