hehe, that's true! In the pursuit of something distinctive (aka style), I believe that with what I've been doing lately I'm very close to what I truly enjoy creating... well, until today at least. I really like selective focus and lb does that quite decently.
I remember reading somewhere that Susan Burnstine achieves her T&S effects through lenses she has created herself... I don't know if I would ever be able to do this but it's something I've been thinking over and over again recently.
