Last night I went out with my 3G, D200 and SB800 flash. The flash was acting wierd so I shot everything at f2 at 1600 iso. So glad I did.

Here are three.

#5 is definitely my favorite - such a mysterious look to it . .

Thanks D, T, C and C for taking the time to look and comment.

Cindi, We live on a very unique, fairly quiet street full of kids. They do everything together. It was fun to see our initial group of about eight kids to float in and out of different gangs of very young neighbors. Often we were looking at a dozen or more little witches, superheros and Hanna Montanas traveling as one.

So nice this year with no rain and all the dry leaves laying around.

Craig, I think that the last is my favorite too. It was really fun to be shooting at 1/4 to 2 seconds and finding surprises like this here and there among the 300+ images I took in the hour or so we were out.

Thank you so much for the positive feedback.

I just get so much of a kick out of seeing Spiderman checking out his Blues Clues candy bucket.

oops. Just found out me posting pics is a bad fo-paw (spell?) I had seen people do the same thing in the past. Forgive me, forgive me, forgive me. Your Halloween pics were the best!

Here is an image shot just before #5 above. I think they go nicely together.

Next is a similar image, more impressionistic and more about color than #5.

Sam commented on a series I showed him from Halloween involving a courageous little lion. I combined the images and they are below as well.

Hi Crystal,

Thanks for the kind words about my photos.

I hope that in the future we will have a place for non-Lensbaby photos to be discussed within this creative community. For now LB photos are pretty much the fare to share.

We have to get you a Lensbaby!

Looking forward to seeing LB photos from you soon.

Read my post above again. I edited it. And check out my profile. There are some lensbaby pictures on it because I got to borrow one in July. So I have used one and can't wait to have one someday.

Okay...no more posting pics all over the place (me.) Have a lovely day~

Crystal,

I did see your Lensbaby photos earlier. Love the portrait of the boy from your second post and the fire hydrant too.

It is not unprecedented to post non-LB photos here but usually they are in the context of showing off something related to the Lensbaby, like someone shooting with a Lensbaby.

Have a beautiful day.

Thank you. I LOVE the lion photos. My 2 year old was a spider for Halloween. Sadly, I did not take the camera along as I wanted more hands to hold onto him.

These are great!

David,

I look forward to hearing how you like your new Lensbabies. Let us know if you need any tips for getting the focusing/exposing down.

Have a super day.

Did I forget to mention that the montage was inspired by Oliver Tudoras?

It's always inspiring to see Craig post his little vignettes......especially his kids and the other little ones growing up on their block .......one of my favorite uses of Bending is the series aspect ......these presented here are just great !

Is it just me or is the Bent image more then just a special effect......I really believe I see better when I Bend an image or maybe it's just part of having fun ...well it plain to see Craig was having fun.......and maybe more then those little tricksters pictured .
