Had the privelage of shooting a golf outing yesterday for the American Cancer Society, and one of the holes had these choppers for a prize of hole-in-one which no one won except the 3G. It made a big hit with these bike benders, and they have asked for more. Thanks Lensbaby!

Excellent! It's great that you used the LB for that kind of images. I really admire you for doing that. I am still a bit reluctant to using LB for "commercial" shots. Great work. NO 2 is really great.

You have posted in the critique section. I don't know what to say. These are "perfect".

Hi Glen,

Thanks for asking for a critique by posting here. I am going to jump in.

The first one I like a lot better in the large image than the thumbnail. The color palette of the duotone or desaturation or whatnot did not look good until it was big and I find it pleasing and complimentary to the strong compositional elements that are well placed.

The second creates some unwanted tension for me in that the pipe on the right is moving off the edge of the photo. I'd like to see it and some black space on the right past that pipe.

The third image is harder for me to look at because I don't see a point of focus and the area that is in focus seems to be in focus due to backfocus. This is not always a bad thing but I don't see the ring of focus as a plus here.

Let me know if you are looking for different feedback or how my comments fit in to what you are after.

Lovely shots...
I like #3 due to its complicated geometry with eerie appearance.

Best Regards,
Rikie
