Continuing my spring series of soft bots.

All wide open on the Original Lens Baby. Nikon D80.

It's all Ellen's fault! ;-)

Don,


You are really doing some nice work with these soft bots. My favorites are #1, #2, and #3 -- oops that's all of them!

Don, these are really beautiful! My kind of shooting, as shallow as possible, now I have to find my "original" baby...and some tulips*~*

Thanks for the comments folks.

I find that the longer I use my Lensbaby, the less and less concerned I am about being "tack sharp" ;-)

That is a big change in 35 years of photography. In fact, I'm even tired of that phrase, which one sees so much on gear forums.

2 & 3 for me, if i had to choose i'd say 2 because theres more focus contrast

I agree with everyone! Beautiful. I love all three. And I am agreeing with you about the new love of the softness that the LB allows. It is awesome.
