*unlike many other lensbaby photos where I shoot the scene many times to be sure to get the focus right, this photo was the only one of it's kind. It's a complete candid. I was aiming to focus on the baloon, as that was supposed to be the focal point of the shot. It accidentaly slipped down a bit and landed on the hand. Afterwards I realized that the hand is the real point of interest. The innocent child's hand, reaching for the blurry future.

As I said before... I think your lensbaby work is far above and beyond the others here. Again, I commend you for your incredible capture and perfectly placed focus point. For many, the lensbaby is simply another tool that is misunderstood. You, on the other hand, know exactly when to utilize it. Well done, and I hope you will continue to sway me towards the lensbaby!:)

I like that there's another balloon in the background. That must be the dream of a dream...

I really enjoyed this image when I came across it during voting. Great use of LB to solidify the storyline you so wonderfully captured! I was one of your seven 10's. Wish it had placed higher but I'm not surprised (duotone, grainy, blur, etc...) - it places high on the "artsy" scale. :-)

Haha, well would you look at that... a 10 from me! Such an emotive piece. I caught my breath when I first saw it.

This is a really nice dream like shot. The whole thing feels slightly surreal.

You have a very good combination of lens use (lensbaby?) and post processing here. I'm not normally a fan of lensbaby style shots at all, but you've put it to good use!
