Lensbaby Honors in Etsy-Land :)

Lensbaby Honors in Etsy-Land :) posted by CMH January 29, 2010 04:14AM reply | quote

About 10 days ago I decided to open another Etsy shop, this time featuring everything photographic:
[www.etsy.com]

Well, it's a good day for me in Etsy-land and I just wanted to share that with my Lensbaby family because the two images that were "honored" are Lensbaby images (of course!).

The first (the lavender) was chosen by the Admin of Etsy to be part of a collage on the "Storque" - the Etsy company blog
[www.etsy.com]

Then I was notified that another floral image - the lily - was chosen to be part of an Etsy "Treasury"
[www.etsy.com]

I take that as a sign - the fact that I just keep getting connected with Lensbabies - to keep on shooting and listing LB images. Obviously they are my best work.

So thanks once more LB peeps. :) And now I think I will treat myself and finally, finally order that fisheye. :D

Have a fabulous weekend!! Cindi

Congrats Cindi. these are gorgeous.

Were they shot with the soft focus lens?

thanks guys. actually these images are a couple of years old, so pre-optics. they were shot with either my LBO or 2.0 - most likely 2.0. the lily - believe it or not - really had very little post-processing, too. :)

Cindi,

Congratulations! These two images are simply wonderful. I can see why they have received such honors! And yes -- go ahead and treat yourself to that FE optic. Can't wait to see what you do with it.
