Hi Mirra, I'd love to see your Lensbaby photos but I don't subscribe to facebook.
Could you load a couple up to this post?
I found out how and hope you see them now, thank you for your interest.

Nice Mirra!!! Was this done with the velvet or one of the other optics?

That's a cool shot as well!
No it's not...the temperature gauge says it's hot

Cheers,

It was taken with lensbaby composer sweet 50 which I have had for over 5 years but now with my Pentax K-1 it is working so well.

Have wondered how the sweet 50 is - seems very smooth transitions. A little smoother than the sweet 35 it appears.

Resurrecting an inactive thread - I just ordered the Twist 60 in K-mount (not offered through the Lensbaby website, but I emailed them and they're building me one for $199.95 + free shipping). I'll post the results here after I receive the lens.

Think you'll really enjoy the Twist 60, especially if you are working with portraiture. I picked up the optic a few months back.
Since I shoot inanimate subjects I found that fully open the swirl was a little more than my taste but at F4 it has a nice touch.
Also found this thing is a jewel on a short extension of about 25-30mm. Didn't feel it performed as well on a longer extension of 44mm.
1st image normal focal length and fully open, all others on approximately a 25mm tube.

Lovely images! Thanks for posting. I shoot mostly portraits and macro, so the combination you suggested sounds right up my alley!

I have used it on the composer. I can't get a Scout (fixed) mount anymore. It is pretty cool, like a wider slower lower quality Velvet. I enjoy it.

Me too, wish I could find an old scout mount.

Received my Twist 60 in K-mount a couple days ago. I haven't had a chance to put it through its paces yet, but here's my first few shots.

Our local amusement park has a nightly snow event, so I had fun trying to capture my husband in the synthetic snow:

Congratulations, looks like you've figured out the swirl effect very well.
The more I work with the Lensbaby system, the more I appreciate.
Tested the Soft Focus optic on K1 the other day for Ultraviolet transmission and it seemed to work very well as an "accidental" lens.
UV attempt with Lensbaby - PentaxForums.com
Think I'll have to give the Twist 60 a try and see how it responds.
Have fun with your new lens.
