I shot these early in 2009, when showing my students how to use the lensbaby. Since I've been messing with the fractalius filter, I've discovered a new way to make lensbaby images even more interesting!

Very nice, Me!! I'd seen the fractalius filter on another forum, and found it interesting. What you did with it in the first is excellent. :D The second is neat too. I love the butterflies.

Lovely. I haven't got a clue what the fractalus filter is, but it works fine. If you use that filter on an image of a fire, will it turn into a rope:)

lol, thanks Bjorn, the filter has been around for a couple of years now, I wouldn't know how to explain it. Don't think there's a chance of it turning fire into rope : ))

Thanks Bill, fractalius allows you to saturate or desaturate as you add the effects. Generally I desaturate, but this one looked better with the strong colours, I felt!

Love #1--a perfect blend of fractalius and LB. I gather the fractalius is something that can easily be taken too far...but not here. Lovely abstract.
