Double Glass Optic, f/4Nikon D200, Lensbaby Composer, Double Glass Optic, 1/80th sec at f/4, ISO 200
Photographed on September 28, 2009

I used my Lensbaby a lot this year. I even took at least one photo-per-day with it for an entire month to try to improve my skills (mostly speed in focusing). Today’s photo is one of the images I created during that time … this was taken while driving through Las Vegas on the way to Photoshopworld. I can’t really put my finger on why I like it so much. It’s probably a combination of the light (the “golden hour”), the bokeh from the lights in the background and the trail of cars in the mirror. Really, when you think about it, the subject is not too interesting but the combination of lots of other factors made it look really cool. :)
