Potentially nice shot but I don't care for the Lensbaby treatment. I have seen those devices advertised and some magazine articles but I still don't see that they have any practical purpose except "bending" the attached lens.

It would have been nice to see all the dilapidating details of this boat clearly.

For those who don't know what a Lensbaby is, it is a special lens mount that permits orienting the lens at unusual angles relative to the camera body. No post-processing tricks are involved.

they have their place. lots of people like to use them to create artistic effects. i have a set, though i admit i've never used them (won them in a photo contest...); if i want a spot focused effect with blurry edges, i can do that in PS or Picasa without fooling with lenses...

Nice picture, but I got a virtual crick in the neck viewing it. I had to save it & resize it before I could see it all at once, even on a 1280x1024 monitor!

I would have to see it more closely but that old boat looks like if the hull were sanded down to bare wood and several new coats of marine varnish were applied, it would be seaworthy. The cabin and deck area may need more attention. Obviously, if it continues to sit there with no maintenance, it may soon be beyond repair.
