    I'd have to say, this is really neat David.
  • evankok said:
    Great on with the focus...and I must say, Matt looks very impressed :)

    obviously feeling a little fuzzy around the edges.... I feel like that most days actually !
    I think one could have a lot of fun with a lensbaby, I did look at buying one once
  • accesser said:
    Wow yeah that focus is great usually they are very out of focus all over.
  • SkattyKat said:
    lensbaby seems to be growing in popularity :-)
    You seem to have gotten the focus in just the right place David
    (Hardly recognised Matt without his hat !! )
  • Millisynth said:
    Fantastic focus here!
    However there is something not quite right with this image... oh... that's what is it... Matt's not pulling a silly face...

    Another nice but expensive gadget. The effect looks very cool.

    I love the lensbaby effect. Nice focus on this one, although Matt doesn't look impressed!

    Didn't turn out bad given I had no idea what I was doing ;-)
    Side effect of Kane flogging his hat, and sitting in the sun ;-)
    I think we all felt a bit fuzzy by the end of the day. ;-)
    I'd been intrigued by them for a while, so it was good to have a play with one. I'm still more interested in a proper tilt/shift lens though.
    Just a case of actually attaining focus really - not that easy to start with, but not impossible.
    Yeah there's a few of them about isn't there. They're an interesting lens to play with that's for sure.
    And no arse-crack either!
    No idea how much they cost actually, not mine, so I didn't pay for it ;-)
    Too much time in the sun without his hat methinks...

  • 6element said:
    That's amazing for a lens baby shot. First time I've seen one that's in focus!
  • Madiator said:
    Actually I have never seen a shot using Lensbaby!!
  • David de Groot said:
    hehehe they're a tricky lens to use, and that's why there are so many out of focus shots out there.
    Mel has heaps - worth checking out.
