Unusual, these days, as I've seen so many photographs, but I found myself looking at these pictures for their visual content, without thinking at all about what kind of camera or lens was used. Great composition.
Thank you! one final shot when leaving San Gimignano.

Two shots from a camping trip that I went on this last week: Tenmile Creek in Hume Lake of Sequoia National Forest, and a shot from the Giant Forest in Sequoia National Park. Both with the A20/2.8.

Thanks Bruce! Man, I dunno but that Lensbaby is growing on me... that is a really great pic of your kid, I like the effect as used here.

I keep seeing those old SoftFocus Pentax FA85mm going for pretty reasonable bucks and I have heard they do a very similar effect as your baby... one day I'm just going to have to grab one for myself and see. I know the cliche' 1980's glam shots with all the overly soft focus borders don't do anything for me, but if the effect can be mild, and used with a little more class like you've shown is possible with nice bokeh, it might be fun, even for stills and macro work with an extension tube, etc. Lots of possibilities. I just keep wondering why I don't see more in use here on the forum, which makes me a little apprehensive about buying one. LOL!

Indeed, but that very excellent shot needs a proper crop to do it justice ?

I got a lacklustre response to this image the first time round. Not sure if I am misguided or there is more to to this image. So trying again with a b+w version. please be honest.

If I can be blunt. I find the image a bit busy. too many details. too sharp. Too many sharp pixels. I would probably prefer it if only some details had that leading sharpness/depth and the other perhaps bit more blurry, if it makes sense.

I'm not sure where to look in the image.
