Playing with photos in Painter
On flickr there is a group called Noise and Dust Through The Viewfinder - on it I found the overlay I've used here by Nesster
The idea is to fake what one sees through the viewfinder of a camera.

Most people use either specialist software or photoshop to create this type of image - as I haven't got either I'm having a go imitating it in Corel Painter IX.5 and not getting close but loving the effects anyway!
HDR is intended to create an image that is more like what sees than what the camera sees but mine are coming out a good deal less real.
