Hi everyone, new user here.

Just want to say what a great forum this is. I've spent hours pouring over the advice and photos on here. Very inspiring!

Here are some of the results of a lunchtime walk around the British Museum in London. They were taken with the Composer and single glass optic. I love the soft glow this gives especially on the white marble.

Wes.

Very well done. Yes, museums are very nice place for the lensbaby, especially used with no aperture disk.

Hi Wes...
Wow, wish we had accessibility to a museum of that apparent quality. Are those life-sized sculptures? I tend to lose the sense of scale when I'm shooting with LensBabies.

Wes,
Great series. I love this museum. I only wish I had my LB when I was there in 2007. Excellent available light, you could spend all day wandering around with the LB there. Makes me hungry for "real" fish and chips along with a good pint. Thanks for sharing.

Welcome and very nice Wes. I can see from the first image you will get a head quickly in your bending.

Thank you for the comments and the warm welcome guys.

LarryJ: Yeah, I see what you mean about the scale of them in the pictures; the first head is only 4 - 5 inches high but the rest of the sculptures are life size if not slightly larger.
