~~~ comments from the Fine Arts II Challenge 'Jury' ~~~

"Because Lensbaby is a very contemporary invention, and this is the best of the Lensbaby shots in my view. Also because it shows a contemporary concept rather well, the proliferation/commonness of celebrities in this day and age.

Gorgeous shot. I love the light and the effect. I am biased against shots that depend on a single effect, but a really good one can take it over the top for me."

This is, to me, a much better use of the Lensbaby than the other one I commented on. This one is nice.

This is fantastic. Great use of lensbaby, puts all the focus on the right place. I bet the title got you a few extra points as well, makes you view it in a different way.

The bokeh is amazing. In fact I think a picture of just the bokeh (get rid of the flower in the vase) would be even better.
