Interesting shot and it should be a great lens to play with. But the bokeh doesn't seem to 'work' with this background (or maybe it's just me).

You are probably right. The thing is, one has to work at it to get the 'magic' of this lens. I haven't quite mastered it yet. The light and angles thereof seems to make all the difference. Aperture too, the madness only happens wide open. Stop down a bit and you have a fairly normal 35mm. But I really must take this Tak out more often.
