    The Human Element

    The Human Element

    Wet, miserable Monday morning on the East coast of Scotland


    Is this is a portrait within a landscape...or a landscape with a person in it ?

    Hi, Sharon. It's a portrait for me, and it all works in a very emotive and stark way. Love the soft focus with just the hint of detail. It may best be seen from some distance- I stood up and backed away from my screen and appreciated it all the more. My only possible adjustment might be toning down the brightest of the graffiti to the luminance of the others as it tugs a bit.
    Beautifully done.

    Really nice, Sharon. Was this with a Lensbaby lens, just really softly focused standard lens or edited soft? It's really a nice image.

    Thanks Kevin, you could very well be right about that.


    Maja, appreciate your comments and glad you like it.

    It was actually taken through a window and the Orton effect added in PP tp further soften.... no Lensbaby on this!
    However...I have been using my Lensbaby Composer this very week, with the plastic and double glass Optics..am still grappling with the zone plate and Pinhole..do you use them yourself?

    I do use Lensbaby. I haven't used it recently...I haven't used a camera with any lens recently. Sort of in a big, giant funk. I think I need to go buy myself a bunch of flowers and unzip that bag.

    Lensbaby is a good way to go when you are feeling jaded and need a new outlook Maja...above all things it is fun!

    ...unzip that bag!
