I have been trawling through reviews today on Lensbaby kit. Suddenly I feel like having a 'play' with my DSLR & 'relaxing' a bit with it. Very tempted to buy one, but like a lot of people (I have discovered) I wonder about the purchase, when Photoshop has so many possibilities also.

This image is a super-quick test I did just now, in less than 5 minutes, on a sort of average photo I took recently. Sure I could spend more time trying to replicate the look of a 'toy' lens, but I was interested to get people's opinions on buying a toy lens vs playing around in Photoshop to create something 'similarish'!
