Lensbaby...It is a great day or what?


I am sooo happy that BetterPhoto has decided to add LensBaby to their sponsers!!! I love using the Baby and think it really adds another dimension to photography. But, I have noticed that the contest doesn't seem to take notice of photos done with the Lensbaby even though I see some lovely photos ignored by the judges. I don't blame the judges, I understand the thought process but it's time to start looking at things that require a little extra budge on the step up. After all, if we all just tried to compete on the same level, every one's images would the same.

  I truly think it's a great idea to vary the prize options - especially good for anyone who has won more than one camera bag... Only problem is I don't have an SLR so I can't use a lensbaby :-(

I really think a 50% discount on a book or course would be a great alternate prize too that everyone could use no matter what camera they have!!

  CA$H. Let'em buy their own damn camera bag.

  But if they get cash, it seems more like a business transaction instead of a gift and praise for an excellent job. I get paid everyday for my portraits but winning even just an honorable mention makes me feel better than all the cash prizes....but that's just my opinion.

  Joking.
But cash prizes are common.
