|Greetings from the Critique Club
Well, this is going to be difficult for me to critique under the circumstances, but as you have put it up for comments, I will give it a go. I personally like it very much, but I think you already knew that.
I was browsing through the highest LB scores section and noted that there are quite a few rather high scoring images with the LB. Perhaps people are starting to appreciate the blurry effects now.
As far as your score goes, I do think it was pretty respectable for a lensbaby image. I think possibly the burnt out highlights in the sky may have made the difference between 5.8 and 6, sorry I didn't think to mention it before! I'm not sure if that's a product of the lensbaby itself, or if it's come about by the b&w processing, but it did possibly impact the score.
Overall the moodiness created by the heavy sky really makes this image. I'm certain there are still a few people put off by the blur, but still a good performance from where I am sitting. Well done!
