Love the images Duh _Vinci. Favorite is the person standing in the doorway. The B&W adds to the atmosphere and mystery.

You seem to be enjoying the single lens challenge. Look forward to seeing more. I need to shot more.
thanks

One of my favorite pictures taken with my Lensbaby and my K-7. THIS is why I love the K-7's grain structure.

The defocusing of the Lensbaby coupled with the noise of the K-7 is beautiful in my opinion.

Brofkand, that is a beautiful image. The colors mesh with the K-7 grain perfectly. You should be proud.
thanks

Thank you for the compliment, barondla.

I love this image. I printed it on 24x36 canvas and have it above my fireplace.

By far my favorite thing about shooting with a Lensbaby is it doesn't matter what you do, the pictures often times look much different than they did in the viewfinder

Barondla - great abstract photos, really well done! I've finally got the plastic optic, and the world is not the same place through that lens for sure!

Brofkand - very pleasing photo, and unique approach to the subject! You definitely can't pull it off from any other lens!

Well, still shooing with Composer (only few days left for this month long challenge)... Missed a day I think, but overall, it's been a very unique learning experiment.

Latest from the Composer "Something is lost..."





K20D/Composer/Plastic Optic/CPL/F4... Shot in toned B&W in-camera setting.

I finally have something to contribute after a long while.

This is a closeup of the female half of a statue which stands under a canopy of trees at Planting Fields Arboretum in Oyster Bay, Long Island. The first photo was taken with the DA70 in July, the second was taken with a Lensbaby 3-G in September.

DA70mm @ f4.0 @ 1/180 second.

Lensbay 3-G @ f5.6 @ 1/30 second.


I know I should have done this comparison at the same aperture, but lately I've found that I like the f5.6 aperture on my Lensbaby better than the f4.0 setting I've been using for the past couple of years.

The difference in bokeh is quite noticeable, but remember: Lensbabies don't have any aperture blades.

Here's the whole statue.


I'll try again to get both faces in the sweet spot, but trying is all the fun with a Lensbaby.

This lens is unforgiving when it comes to focusing, but I like this aspect of the lens, because it always makes you think.

Thanks for the compliment Duh Vinci. Found the subjects in my "garden". The plastic optic does see the world differently. So much fun.

Duh Vinci, you have captured a beautiful image with the plastic optic. Like the light and airy feeling. The person adds greatly to the strength of the image. Every thing has a near infrared look.

Mike Bokeh, the statue images are well done. LB looks good at 5.6.

thanks

Very nice shot, Barondla.

It looks as though it could be the cover photo on a book.

It's good to see people still contributing to this thread.

Hopefully, I'll have some Lensbaby Blues guitar photos by the weekend.

See you then.

Mike
