Hi, yourself!

Welcome!

May I ask why you like this effect?

Also; since many of us did not see what you referenced, would you post a link to them please?

The Lensbaby company has some pretty nifty new types of effects lenses. I too was wondering what exact effect or look you were interested in recreating.

yes of course. I am not sure why I like the effect so much. I am mainly a dance photographer and I find the blend of stillness, motion, and focus extremely compelling and unique.

After seeing these, I would agree, this looks like Lensbaby work. I have the Original model, as well as 2.0, and then another one I got very cheaply. These to me look like the 2.0. Tilting the lens is what makes the out of focus highlight take on that oddly elongated shape. You are right--these do have an interesting feeling/look/vibe to them. The Original model has a much softer lens look, and has a lot of color fringing...these are sharper, which is what makes me think it might be the 2.0, or one of the later models.
