Vignette: In a photographic and artistic sense, a “vignette' is a darkening of the image at the corners of the frame. Some poor quality lenses produce strong vignetting, with the effect becoming more noticeable at the maximum aperture.

Vignetting is a common feature of photographs produced by toy cameras such as this shot taken with a Holga.
I vignette, sometimes a gamma, but mostly an exposure vignette to add further shade to the image to bring out that central point of interest. I might de-saturate and sharpen, but it depends on how I want the final image to look. Some images I will dodge and burn.

The update also adds Vignette Control, to attempt to correct corner light falloff. It doesn't work, at least on flat test fields shot with either my 14mm f/2.8 AF-D or 80-200mm f/2.8 AF-S (at 200mm at f/2.8.) I've already added examples of vignette control to my Nikon D3 review.

It tends to vignette a bit and it has many quirks about it. I like it because it's different, not 'technically' better. I already have a Nikon for my 'main' sharp photos, but I carry the Lomo around as a snap camera.
Here is a good place to take overviews, vignettes and details using the range of your zoom lens from wide-angle to telephoto. These can show the general setting for the stained glass, such as a chapel; as well as telling segments that reveal elements of the design.
