I am understandng the appeal now.....the softness in the foreground is made up for by that wonderful impressionistic background its so interesting that it is an old movie lens, because it really does have a cinematic feel....

Thanks ... it's maybe of a "certain style", and I am still working on/with it.

It's just a meager beginning, and hopefully I will discover more and better later on ...

I usually regard the sharpness of a photo first but in this case, "the color is the subject itself" as said Bruce Barnbaum

I would like to get it a bit sharper and hopefully a later additional modification could achieve this ...

I just offered up the image for what it is and to show that an 8mm movie lens is still "usable" ... ha!

Wow. How many of these funky old lenses do you own?
Too many ... I picked them up for peanuts at my thrift store and some times at boot/yard sales. I like the hunt. J

I see them sometimes but have never bought any. I've been missing out apparently
If you get one and want some ideas on how to modify, please feel free to contact me ...

Usually I remove an inner element and reverse the rear group to get a "starter" image.

Also mount them on a Russian bellows (see below). Cheers, J
