    Ah. The by far most beautiful photo saved until last? ;)
    The new one is really beautiful, what with the sun lighting up that water lily from behind. Precious light!
    Second best (now - was the winner until the water lily appeared) is the little knight. Or Roman warrior, methinks ... not knight. And then, yes, I agree with keybq on that, it's that arcade. The other two don't do anything for me though.

    Very nice shots Gary. I don't recall any Lens Baby shots that have impressed me, but these certainly do.

    Lens babies are always fun to mess around with imo.

    I like #4 and the water lily. Is there any control over the size and amount of blur with one of those?

    Yes, you have aperture control and the more you tilt and shift the greater the blur and vice versa.

    Less Blur

    With the Lensbaby 2 ... while fast to use, you give up control for speed. Other Lensbabys have greater control.

    Nice photos :) I've never really been into this look much, but I really like #2 of yours and all the ones you posted individually after the initial post.

    Thanks Lyncca ... a LensBaby is no different than ... say a fisheye ... just another photographic tool and look ... works for some people ... does'n work for others.
