I might try do a whole series like this. Tell me what you think, please.

Makes me think I'll keep my lensbaby until I get a 5d.
I think its most effective when the crisp spot accentuates a well lit spot
that is already drawing the viewers eye in contrast to the dark.
That's the thing the lensbaby teaches,
does my picture have a strong point that draws the viewer's eye?
The best is #1 because the sky hasn't gone full black
giving a great balance of light, medium and dark.
The hour after sunset is "the beautiful hour" for urban photography.

Thanks. I think I actually missed the spot I wanted on #3, but I think it's still sort of interesting. It's kind of a pain shooting with the 2.0, some shots take me 5, 10, 20 tries to come close to what I want. Getting EXACTLY what I want is even harder. A 3.0 where I could lock in the focus would be great. I kind of wish I would have gotten that instead.

These shots have given me the urge to dig out my Lensbaby and start using it again. It's been a long time since it was mounted on my camera. :confused:

1st is nice but it might look better if u cropped it tighter

How would you suggest cropping it? I think I like it framed by the buildings on the sides with the bit of blue sky on the top. I actually framed it like that because there was a radio tower on top of the building in that blue space, but the lights happened to be off during the shot.

Those shots are great, my favorite is #1. Now I really can't wait to get me lens baby, should be here next week. Thanks for the inspiration.

Great shots! I love the motion and speed in number 3. If Spiderman took a picture whilst swinging through the streets, this would be it. Excellent

Very good shots. Haven't been that fond of some of the Lensbaby shots. These are really interesting. Might have to look into buying one.

Thanks for all the kind words, everyone. Makes me actually want to get out there and take more of these.

I think the third pic is the best as it feels like there is a lot of motion in the scene. #1 has great color, but 3 is great.
