I'll observe, somewhat repeating myself, soft focus seems to work especially well with flowers, high key and pastel colors, but there are exceptions, but those are exceptions.

My pleasure... I thought it would motivate the owners to do more experiments... and shoot more with this lens!
I like your shots very much...

Flowers - the natural for soft focus (also attractive young women, and commonly high-key). 85mm f2.2 + Minolta #1 close-up lens on K1.

Pentax-F 85mm f 2.8 soft

Our clematis have begun blossoming today, one of my favorite soft targets.

NOTE: EXIF says FA, but this is an F lens.
