takumar 55mm F/2
Posted By: maritimer, 04-27-2009, 05:18 PM

So I got the M42 I needed to start using this wonderful lens and it has been the only lens on the camera since. I am nowhere near the level I would like to be yet, in terms of composition and that super sharp focus but with some practice I'm hoping to get there.

I don't know if any of you have seen / voted but a few of these are up on the PPG 'hopefuls' block. I would love some real feedback, especially from you brilliant DOF shooters that I know are here. All shot handheld and 55mm @ F2.
Enjoy, thanks for looking and thank you for any C&C offered.

K10d 1/1000s ISO 100

K10d 1/20s ISO 100

K10d 1/8s ISO 400 ( I know, I know :P )

Well done I love the simplicity of #1 and gret bokeh.

I really like the first picture, especially when you can see the small details such as the spider web. This photo somehow gives a 3D effect for my eyes. The flower in focus seems to jump out.

I don't like the second one so much since it kind of gives me a headache when I look at it. Too many bright spots for my eyes.

The third photo is another great shot.
