"Geez a hand there pal would ya?"

A teeny tiny skink caught in a red back's web by the looks of it. Don't worry I set him free after the photoshoot

Shot with the Lensbaby Velvet 56, yes.. the same lens that is renowned for it's soft 'velvetness' glow. Make no mistake this lens is sharp stopped down (shot f8).

There’s no doubt about you being the Master of Velvet™, Eddy. What about a lens club?

There is a generic lens baby club already in this forum if that's what you mean?

Thanks for the compliment

It looks like if you misalign elements in a random cheap 50mm and and a dirty UV filter infront. I have trouble seeing why you would pay a premium for this.

Does it really cost more than an used DA55/1.4? Somebody is trying to make loads of money...
It is clear you do not appreciate all the work lensbaby does to provide creatives with equipment not available elsewhere. However, there are those here who's creativity output is their source of income, some who have worked for years in the industry. If you have an opinion on a lens, please share your findings along with pictorial evidence, preferably, without loaded prejudice. Keep it professional.

Really nice pictures, great!
One of the things I dislike the most about using lensbaby lenses is the inevitable comment from someone somewhere arguing that the same effect can be done for cheaper or in post production. I don't wholly disagree, a few google searches will show some photoshop tutorials on how to fake a lensbaby affect. Maybe vaseline on a filter does work quite well... but always the flow goes like this;

1) I upload a lensbaby shot
2) I get a comment from someone stating it can be done for cheaper or in PP
3) I agree or disagree (depending on the effect)
4) I point out that some may lack the PP skills to make the effect plausible and authentic in PP, and that perhaps trying to mimic the effect out in the field with vaseline or something else is just annoying and in practice no one really actually can be bothered to do it.
5) They never show their results of an image taken with a normal lens and PP manipulated or some lens hack to illustrate their point. (which I would love to see, as I love hacks and ingenuity, and would also be interesting to compare the effects etc, is it close or far from the same quality etc).
6) I continue to shoot with lensbaby glass (and the cycle repeats).

So in short, if you have the glass in the cabinet, you are simply more likely to take it out and use it, the rest is irrelevant really.

Glad you liked the shots.

FWIW also, the lensbaby is ridiculously sharp, around f5.6-8 it is possibly my sharpest lens in the cabinet!
