Photoshop and skateboarding...

I shot some photos with James Atkin last week. This feeble was one of the "throw away" shots that he didn't want to use for anything (the trick was not gnar enough). I have been playing around with it in Photoshop, and I have to say, I like each of the results for different reasons. Feel free to comment and let me know what you like or don't like.
The original, un-manipulated.
Fake black and white with a fake border.
Fake Lomo...for those who know what a Lomo is.
Fake color.
This back tail is also un-manipulated. I just threw it in for good measure.
So...what is your favorite?

You posted! That's awesome, keep it up.

I like the black and white. Something about the starkness of black and white and the edginess of the fake border just makes the image a little punchier.

is it a testament to the photog that the first, unmanipulated shot strikes me as the best? pfff, what do i know, i think the shots i take with my 5M PINK polaroid camera are adequete(sp?). nice shots, man.

I say...Fake Lomo. The black and white one rocks too. I am going back and forth between those two.
