Even though Lensbaby Velvet 56 is meant to be used as a soft focus portrait lens, it has become one of my go-to lenses for landscape and night photography. The way the lens makes lamp lights and metallic objects glow (especially in darkness) is like no other.
I always use it at f/4 or f/5.6 and adjust the ISO and shutter speed manually.
These first five images are completely un-edited. The sixth one (on the bottom), however, is toned using Alien Skin Exposure X using a custom setting.
