More Practice With My Lensbaby Composer, Double Glass Optic, f5.6

With the nights drawing in earlier and earlier, night photography is about the only way I can get out and shoot after a hard days work - so I grabbed my 350d, my tripod, my Lensbaby Composer and headed for Portsdown Hill.

I only had an hour, so I experimented with some landscape shots towards Portsmouth, but it was a bit too hazy, however this light caught my eye for a bit of an abstract.

I also set up on a bridge over the M27 to get some light-trail effects:

It was a very calm evening, so my light trails didn't suffer from the "wobbliness" of earlier efforts, and my rock-steady Cullmann tripod definitely helped too.

I shot all of these photographs at f5.6, which is a nice compromise in the Lensbaby, where the sweet-spot is large, but the "artistic" blur is still evident.

Cheers, Rob.
