    Here's with filter:

    And without:
  2. Hi!

    I definitely prefer without filter. The filter gives the image that old look. Looks almost scanned...

    Hi Transmit,

    My vote is without filter too. The filter makes the image (esp. her face) a little too raw (Pun not intended)

  5. The filter doesn't work for me, picture is great.
