    Hey guys -

    Here's a shot taken with a lensbaby.... if you don't know what it is it's a lens with a ball and socket joint that lets you move the focus area around the frame... also has a radial blur pattern as opposed to tilt-shift lenses which have a linear focus area...

    the shot has been processed in LR3...

    comments/critiques welcome...

    I like it, I am not sure I like the really wide border on the top and bottom. But the shot is really good.

    I'm far into the hating category, but this was done tastefully.

    thanks for the comments guys...

    as to this one... honestly... 98% of what i've shot with it... i've hated...

    BUT

    sometimes they come out well... and it's pretty fun to just experiment and try to find what works...

    theres no "top 10 composition tips for lensbaby" to read... it's just what you come up with you know?

    also... i think it's really situational... you can't exactly use it to shoot everything...

    all this random musing aside... i did really like this shot and i'm glad some of you guys liked it as well...
