HELIOS Bauble and Bokeh

This is another shot with my HELIOS 44M 58/2 vintage Russian lens.

A bauble on our Christmas Tree , shot wide open at f2.

There's a selfie reflection in the purple bauble. I am on my hands and knees with my camera in a tripod

Not a bad efort for an old vintage lens.

A Rawtherapee / GIMP edit

It's beginning to feel a bit like Christmas
This is beautiful - we have the same lens Phil! Must say mine's taking a lot of getting used to but I hope I can get something as good as this in the end.

Nice focus and bokeh. Funny how arty photography has created a whole bunch of wonderful pictures using things we used to throw away in despair from our developed film packets, bokeh, sun flares, double exposure, camera movement.

That lens really suits the subject. Lovely one, Phil

Great shot. When I saw you there on the floor I didn't notice the tripod and was saying to myself "How did he manage to take such a great shot with the camera hand-held". Great focusing.
