About the Image(s)

Taken with Lensbaby
My Lensbaby is a Composer Pro. This consists of a base with a swivel movement into which you install a lens. In my case is a Sweet 80 lens. It has settings 2.8-16. In this particular photo the F was on 2.8 with micro setting. The swiveling action, when used, creates extreme blurs around the focal point. In this case I did not use it. There is quite a collection of Lensbaby, it is from a company in Portland, Oregon.

Interesting image of the plant...good use of the lensbaby. Not much else to say about it, as it is well done.   Posted: 05/03/2020 15:44:35

Haven't used a Lensbaby either. The control of the focus really draws the eye to the center/sharp portion of the plant. Almost seems like it's moving towards me. Nice job.   Posted: 05/06/2020 14:30:45

Haven't used or seen much of the results of a lensbaby either. But you seem proficient with it. My eyes are first drawn to the center portion of the plant and then just expands everywhere. Great job.   Posted: 05/08/2020 20:06:29

absolutely agree with comments. My eye though is drawn to focus area and then pulls to you your signature. For this image maybe you could reduce the size or shift the placement.
Interesting photo.   Posted: 05/18/2020 14:21:06

You guys are right, even my wife pointed that out to me. I have now edited my signature to be on the left side, smaller and more transparent. Perhaps I will eliminate it completely.
