Arabella, Very Monet! No suggestions to your well done effort.

This is simply gorgeous, Arabella! You have turned a humdrum flow pic that was over-exposed into a wall-worthy piece of art. I have no suggestions here except print it and mount it! Bravo!   Posted: 05/18/2020 15:51:46

Really nice. Great painting effect.
I've never used a Lensbaby. What does it do?   Posted: 05/18/2020 17:11:36

This is yet another wonderful treatment of an image, which you do so well. It's really a show-stopper now. Simply beautiful.   Posted: 05/18/2020 17:34:45

thanks!! the lensbaby velvet 56 can focus from infinity down to 3 inches but it is completely manual. if you select any of the fstops from 5.6 to 2 then only some of the capture will be in focus and the rest will be increasingly blurry as you go more open. i think i took my lensbaby over exposed image and processed in on my phone with the aps called brushstroke and maybe mextures or distressed. for me the challenge is to get the exposure and shutter-speed the way i want it and have the background and most of the subject soft.   Posted: 05/18/2020 17:39:34
