hello everybody my lensbaby compsoser arrived today and i took it out for a short walk in the park [in a cold, grey london - which kinda added to the atmosphere] before parking it in front of the christmas tree..

im obviously a complete beginner so i would appreciate any criticism or hints on using the lensbaby but i know itll come down to practice :) . ive thouroughly enjoyed broswing thru some of ur work and hope to make some more contributions of my own. cheers!

I'm new here,and plan on purchasing the Muse for my Canon XS.
I want to get the optics kit as well,my question is are the optics in the Muse removable,or am I stuck with the one that comes with it.I'm huge Holga fan,so I know I want the plastic optic,but I really love the results of the other optics,and
really want the experience of using all 4.
The macro and the creative aperture kits are must-haves as well.
Or am going to need the Composer to get the full experience

The Muse (like the Composer) has interchangeable optics. So you can change the lens optics as your mood or subject dictate. Enjoy!

Welcome and it looks like you are on your way. I liked the second one of your first set of pictures. I also like the last one but you kind of loose the Lb effect with the white space (cloudy sky). I liked your second set especially the last one.
