Chris Pereira from San Jose, CA, United States

I really like the softfocus,

was the softfocus done in post processing?

@Chris Pereira: Thanks, Chris. The soft edges (blur) is a result of the little aperture rings used with the Lensbaby. See the info on their website: http://www.lensbaby.com/

Agree about the softfocus - it's excellent!
The soft tones are lovely

Another great image, Barbara. Those curls are really lovely. I like the composition you chose, DOF and soft focus.I like the lightning in previous one though.

@Tomas Turecek: I like the 'color wash' better of the previous one. I think that may be the difference - more color in the background. Thanks, Tomas, for stopping by and for your nice comments.

Nice to see some more lensbaby fans on here! That is wonderfully soft - which optic was it?
