I mounted the LB composer on Kenko DG extension tubes. I think I used the 12mm tube as the other were making the maximum focusing distance too small.

I have been messing round a lot and finally started to get some images that have at least one somewhat sharp subject. I need something sharp to anchor my "eyes" to.

Thanks for your time and comments.

Lily,

Welcome to the Lensbaby forum! I particularly like image #1 with its softness and super bokeh.

I received my new lensbaby muse in the mail yesterday and immediately went outside to take some flower macros. I love it on flowers- now I just have to learn to use it on everything else. Practice makes perfect I hope. Tried to upload an image but couldn't but the first outing was a success

I had no idea that you could use the Kenko Extension tubes with Lensbaby..

I"ve been using the Kenko Extension tubes for my macro shots and am very happy with the results. As of yet, I don't own any lensbabys, but plan to buy after I educate myself as to which one to buy, and what photo effect you can get with the various optics.

But, I would love to know more about what your doing with the Kenko extension tubes and Lensbabys.

I'm attaching some of my Kenko Extension tube Macros to let you know what I'm talking about.

Great experimentation. I think both images work very well.
