Shapes
Lens: Helios 44M Camera: Pentax K-5 ISO: 800 Shutter Speed: 1/500s Aperture: F2 
Posted By: Lauke_101, 10-08-2014, 06:28 AM

A very simple shot, actually more of a test shot with my newly acquired Helios 44M, but a few things struck me:
- This lens is SHARP wide open, incredible
- The color rendition is very different from what I'm used to with Pentax lenses, but I like it. Very film-like, somehow
- Although it is very capable of super swirly bokeh, it is incredibly smooth here

There's a little play with shapes and colors in this shot that I like.

Using the camera to turn the ordinary into the extraordinary! I love this sort of thing, Laurent.
