Lensbaby shot, taken while on the Worldwide Photowalk in San Pedro on Saturday. Had a good time, met some nice people, told a few about DPChallenge but also warned them that it will destroy their soul..... Heh.

This won't score well. I'll be disappointed even though I know it won't score well. I'm a very, very, very slow learner. :-)

Wow - scored WAY better than expected!! It was even in that rarified 6+ zone for a bit until the last day. Gotta say I'm pretty happy with this one!

And yes, another damn-near-but-not-six. Still good, though.

ooh, cool!! Only about the 6th lensbaby shot that I've ever liked! (for some reason, they don't do much for me, but this is really cool!

Nicely done on this one, Deb, even if it didn't score well. Great Lensbaby usage.

Another for your 'not-quite-6' collection! For what it is worth, I feel this should have scored above 6 - really effective use of the lensbaby (I must think about saving for one...)

I gave out two 10s. This was one them. LB used to good effect. The coloration is captivating.

Great impact with the blur and point of color.

Damn, another not quite 6. Still, it's nice to see you are back in the zone and they are not in the not quite 5 range!

Great catch. I am intrigued regarding the focus plane though (the lady in red is in focus while other objects that appear at the same distance are blurred). I will just wait for rollover to get the details. (not voting)
