Yes, it is my turn with the Helios 44.

Was at a flower exhibition last weekend. Some tweaking on the levels.

I continue to love seeing images from this lens. Great shots!

What size extension did you use?

I just had a look at my extension but can't find any size marking on it. Embarassed There are 3 extension tubes in my extension set and I used the 2nd largest/smallest.

I actually just got some m42 extensions, 3 in a set as well. They are probably the same. My first try with them I used all 3 together on my helios-44-2 and its quite a shallow DOF Smile

For my second attempt I think I will try just one extension Cool

Thanks hexi, Poolhall and Schnauzer.

Having another look at my co's monitor, looks like I have overdone the level. A bit too dark for my liking. What do you think?
