I am so blankety blank envious of this one. The LB swirl of confusion working with the girl's hair, while her eyes are just precise enough...

I do like these random images, although "club" people will always point out the bl**din' obvious and mark it down. I love it. It has personality. Excellent in mono too; it just wouldn't have worked in colour.

This is really rather good Bill, as you know I am not a fan of the lensbaby but in this case it has worked perfectly to create an otherworldly scene.

Bill, this is superb. These days, my "vision" seems to be changing, and this is right up my alley - right into faves!
I'll probably have to get a LB, been aching to try one.

It certainly conveys movement, Bill. Don't know what it would be like in colour, but don't think it would work as well as this mono.

The nicely balanced composition is the factor in this image for me Bill, great depth too, almost in spite of the atmospheric blurring. Very nice work!
kind regards,

I was trying to come up witha decent comment on this last night. Failed and fell asleep thinking. Two things at once, inevitable.
Reminds me of an image from many years ago but I can't quite recall.

Definitely a ghostly feel to this unusual and captivating shot.
