Vintage dreams

I have been a fan of cross processing , vintage , lomo , color leech , damaged/old photo for a long time now.
When used on the right photo, the effects can really make an impact.

I tried different effects here, and personally i like the result.
I don't want to follow any tutorial blind, as it never get the result i want, but they are indeed helpful! For there are steps there i use, but never all of them.

The photo is taken outside my city, i dug in the archive and found this suiting for such and experiment.

Huge thanks to the following, for letting me use their texture:


Feedback is appreciated.

How can i get the vintage effect in the color of a photo without using photoshop or any ohter software ???

How about puting the photographs under sunlight ?

Some other idea is welcome :)

I do love the texture in this photo. What a great feel, I never would've thought of adding a vintage type feel to a seagull, but it works very well. Nice :)

I LOVE the effects that you created. I'm not sure I'm a fan of the color overtone you used., although, admittedly, I do love the vintage look. It's a tiny bit too pink for me. But the photo and your work is BEAUTIFUL. BEAUTIFUL clarity and compsition.
