I'm really experimenting on my macros and I think these have more of a dreamy effect rather than spot on. I am pretty sure these were taken with the Double Optic and +10 macro, but at this point I can't guarantee it. I need to jot down what I'm using and be more organized as I've been like a little kid in a candy shop trying out everything.

Hej Diane,
First of all: nice shots!!
When you take a good look at your photographs on your first 1 there is a sweet spot (sharper then the rest) on the right appel. nr2 is indeed dreamy, and nr 3 will have a sweet spot also on the right side. The more you bend the lensbaby the more difference in sharpness you will have. (see my avatar)
Have fun with your lensbaby. which one do you have?
greetings
Jan

Hi Jan,

I upgraded to the Composer Pro/Double Optic. I wanted extra money at the time to also get the Plastic Optic and the Soft Focus optic. I should be getting the Sweet 35 shortly. :-) But, I really need more practice and confidence in knowing what optic to use for what type of photography I'm going to do. Right now I'm just experimenting with the Optics. I think the Sweet 35 will be great for Table Top and Macro photos. Don't you?

Yes,i think the 35 might be awesome for macros.

TRYING IS THE FIRST STEP TOWARDS FAILURE.

Diane,

All three of these are beautiful. The dreamy effect is a real plus on these, IMO. Nice. Your composition in all three is also well done.

Really beautiful work Dianne. I have just got the macros, but haven't had the opportunity to use them yet, but these are quite inspiring.
