Dreaming of yellow,
I see through the lens softly
fields of flowers.

Very dreamy. Nice one.

Gorgeous - but what exactly is a Lensbaby Composer?

David C. said...

Thanks to all for the comments. Dave, the Lensbaby Composer is a tilt-shift lens with changeable optics. There is a "sweet spot" of focus which can be moved by tilting the lens, rendering other parts of the image in softer focus. The different optics also change the quality of the image. The zone plate gives the whole image that dreamy, soft look. Other options for optics include plastic, single glass, and double glass.
