    Here are my first tries with Lensbaby. What do you think?

    That second one is really nice. I like the contrast of the yellow/orange flower and the blue background.

    I actually like that rose, it's very surreal and lovely. My main nitpick is that it is a mite cut off at the bottom. With such a deliberately soft image, for me it's important to get the whole subject in there. Same thing for the second one. I really love the bouncy colors in the third shot - it's very pretty, and lots of fun. Still, the first one of the rose has the most appeal - just my two cents. :)

    Lensbabies are fun - hope to see you keep shooting! :thumbup:

    The first one had the most potential for me, but you have such a separation from your subject and backround. Not sure where that halo is coming from either. A Lens baby should give you a really seamless flow and cohesive flow. I am not seeing that with these.

    Thanks a lot for all your feedback. Attached is the original picture of #1. As I felt it's a bit lame, I added some post processing, i.e. some color and grain.
    Although I feel #2 is the more impressive on first sight I believe #1 has more to it. What would you see as a suitable post processing?
