So, after much agonizing over the purchase, I finally got a Lensbaby, and ran around this evening taking pictures with it:

























Lensbaby 2.0, Pentax K10D.

The first ones are with the f/4 aperture disk; for the last ones I stopped down further, although I can't actually remember which disk I used.

As you can see if you look at the filenames, my "hit ratio" is pretty low -- I shot about 200 images and came back with this handful. But I definitely had a lot of fun.

I need to work on getting focus right and putting the sweet spot where it ought to be — a challenge with fast-moving kids! (The one with the fallen log would have been a keeper one second earlier. Oh well.)

All of this is straight JPEG from the K10D without postprocessing (shrunk with ImageMagic). I actually think the K10D's jpeg engine suits the lensbaby quite well.

Welcome to the LB Forum. Thanks for sharing your some of your first shots with us. Very nice. I've been at it for about 8 months, and I'm satisfied myself with a handfull of keepers out of a couple hundred!
