Sun flare by ingajohansson

Sun flare

This shot is for the 52 Week Challenge: Week 19 / May 7th – Vision: Edge Cut Sun. The Helios 44 is known, not just for it's swirly bokeh, but also for it's bad abilities to handle backlight. Now that I've tried it I love this aspect of the lens too. How excellent to make a lens with so many faults that we can enjoy so many years later.
Thank you Mel @m2016 for this challenge, it made me go out and test my lens in a new way.

That's a great capture of the sunburst Inga. Like the blue sky through the leaves of the trees.

@octogenarian Thank you. Yes, I'm thrilled about it and I like all the faults in "bad" lenses.
