Ready to Burst

A lensbaby shot from the Garfield Conservatory. These are cacti of some sort. Learning the range of what to do with a LB - still not particularly drawn to it but opening my mind to some of the posibilities.
This is a really neat shot!

The LB is making some very interesting pictures. Looking forward to seeing more.

Interesting image it creates

Oh, so cool . . . and you captured the LB feel.

Very cool!

I was gonna scream — thought they’re spiders😍

Looks alien ☺

Great shot of these spidery plants.

Interesting effect though

Very effective lensbaby image :)

You'll get there... I think the thing is to recognise that it's essentially a gimmick and not take it too seriously :-)

Great use of your lensbaby. Fav

Interesting how you created motion in a motiv that is totally still.
posted January 23rd, 2018  
These look alive! Super use of you LB!

Being fro the southwest, I thought I had seen every version of cactus. This is a new one for me. This is a very nice lensbaby photo, I think it is a just for fun lens.

Awesome picture.

Cool image with great textures...great use of your LB
posted January 23rd, 2018  
A very interesting combination of spiky with a big 'ouch' factor but surrounded by softness. I like the LB ability to give multiple texture levels
posted January 23rd, 2018  
Cool shot.

Great photo!

A very unique focus and look

Little aliens ready to attack! I like the effect.

This looks like some crazy abstract.
posted January 23rd, 2018  
Great LB photo - I had never heard of a LB before I was your posts so I 'googled' it. Thank you. Looks good fun.
posted January 23rd, 2018  
They do indeed look alive. Cool effect.
posted January 23rd, 2018  
A super capture

Makes me think of something under the sea!
posted January 23rd, 2018  
It does make them very alien like, cool capture
posted January 23rd, 2018  
Very cool!
posted January 23rd, 2018  
Looks like it's alive....of course it's live but more in motion.
posted January 23rd, 2018  
I’m with you re lensbaby but this works well
posted January 23rd, 2018  
worked very well for this shot.
posted January 23rd, 2018  
Amazing shot, Taffy! It has a otherworldly feel.
posted January 23rd, 2018  
Is it really hit and miss as to what comes out in focus? You got a hit here and gave it just the perfect title.
posted January 23rd, 2018  
Like it!
posted January 23rd, 2018  
Reminds me of particle systems. I really like this.
posted January 24th, 2018  
It's like they are spinning around the center. Fascinating.
posted January 24th, 2018  
Impressive result of your experimentation.
posted January 24th, 2018  
@helenhall Focus isn't hit or miss if you have good vision and steady hands. But for me, hit or miss is a good way to describe it. What mine requires is fiddling with the accordion like lens -- almost like bellows -- and then holding it steady on the section in focus.

Great shot, Taffy. It does look alive and so cool in B&W too. FAV
posted January 24th, 2018  
Very interesting. I like that it's b&w.
posted January 24th, 2018  
Very interesting, looks some kind of alien living thing.
posted January 24th, 2018  
Cacti.... my first thought was a heap of spider eggs, just about to explode and start crawling all over the place.. eek
posted January 24th, 2018  
Very interesting- they look like something you'd see under a microscope!
posted January 25th, 2018  
@deborah63 Thanks for your comment. I was also surprised at how the cactus looked to be in motion. Hadn't thought of LB as having that effect before this.
