    Alternative Faralya Sunset

    Not sure how this will be received but here is a shot from the same view point as my first post from Faralya but using the Lensbaby with a pinhole lens. I know it isn't sharp but the idea was to set a mood rather than show an exact copy of the scene.

    Hi Peter,

    To be brutally honest, lens baby shots just never - ever - "do it for me".

    Not sure how others find them, but I've only ever found them to be a device to ruin what often could have been a great shot.

    I like the idea of the shot.. and what the should would look like if it was clear... but looking at it just hurt my eyes.

    IMO (applying what I learned from Colin... lol) this would be more appropriate for a movie scene or something...

    Yes I agree. To me, it just looks like one of those accidental shots which I take, much to often, by pressing the shutter button by mistake.

    I think that very careful editing starting with a 'normal' image can produce some interesting dream like results. But I fear that, from that angle, you may be onto a loser no matter what you do. Although careful manual metering may work.

    Not for me. Looks like a mistake.
