This (the composer or muse) is definitely a lens I want as part of my kit. It's very much in the same category as a fisheye, a specialty lens to be used in certain situations to get certain photographic looks. Not all photographs need to be tack-sharp to be considered good work. If the photographer is looking for a special look/effect and this lens can help get that, then that is all that counts.

Can't a lot of these images be created with regular lens, and then using Photoshop to create a new layer, blur the new layer, then use a gradient mask?

No, you can't fake the light at the time of shooting. It will look close but fake.

I got my LB 2.0 last week, and I've been using it a lot. The LB has really got me thinking about composition, and when and how to utilize the LB to it's fullest potential.

I really enjoy using this lens, and even when it's not mounted I'm thinking to myself "would this shot benefit from selective focus..."

that is a fantastic shot, looks like a more expensive TS-E was used
well done

in response to the 'haters' - its a lot harder to take quality photos with a lens like this than with a conventional, more expensive lens. you definitely need more skill to have solid control over the outcome (rather than just experimenting and fluking a lucky shot)

This is very true. I tried one out and found it extremely hard to use. Getting a good shot out of these lenses requires considerable skill. (Compare that to the 100L Macro I tested as well, my first shot with it was actually good enough for me to post into the archive.)

Thank you. This image is on my PS to-do list.

This is a challenging lens to use, but with the right subject matter, composition and proper use the Lensbaby shines.

Here's my opinion on them: They are cheap plastic and over priced, And ONLY DO ONE THING. I'd much rather have a real select focus lens that isn't crap even if they are $1000. There's my opinion. :|

Your opinion clearly falls into the old idiom, "opinions are like ass holes, everyone has one and they all stink".

I have to say... WOW, what a shot. Beautiful model doesn't hurt either :) But brilliant framing and lovely use of the bokeh of the Lensbaby (which can be abused and wasted).
