For me, this photo represents what I truly love about LOMO. No, it doesn't document every detail in sharp focus, but instead it captures the 'essence' of a moment with a slight blurred motion in the foreground, that oversaturated color, (especially in this evening light) and random slight focus in an unexpected part of the image. Plus due to the lens on these cameras, that beautiful natural darkening around the edges frames the shot with no tricky photoshop - this image is shot with no flash, and no special additional lenses. For me it brings me right back to the special feeling of friends walking onto the beach at sunset your first day on vacation with a chilled cocktail in hand after a long car ride.
