That’s how long we’d been up by that point.

My daughter, Heidi, down at the tracks. (Testing out the Lensbaby Composer Pro.) In-camera FX & apart from tonal adjustments + a texture, this is SOOTC. best enlarged

    OH!! I think this might be the best so far!! It has a very “ghost who walks” feel about it, so much more enhanced by that rockin’ texture!!

    I’m aware that Heidi appears to be “sans feet”, so “ghost who walks” seems somewhat ironic…..

    WOW! Just can’t tell you how much I love this one! You girls really do well on sleep deprivation :D

  • Yeah, my favourite too. And yes! We do sleep deprivation well…ha.. we were utterly thick-headed by that point. Throw in the fact that it was my first day with the Lensbaby & things were already looking a little blurry? But we were doing a good bit of laughing (not at all serious). I was having to hold my side from laughing so hard. :) We ended up sleeping that night, about 9 hours later. We were SO gone by then… thanks for checking it out. ;)

    Ok, why ISO 400? Sleep deprived, eh? hehehe….love what you’ve done here, the blur, her stance, the focal point and the added texture have added up to a spectacular result!

  • Thanks, Mel. :) Well, the 400 added a bit more brightness than at 100, and for being as wobbly as I was (at the time), I desperately needed that 1/4000 of a sec! ;)
