I present to you a portrait of my grandfather Blai Farrioli Martorelli (circa 1885-1924). It is very possible that the photo was taken by a lens Petzval or similar, due to his big opening (f: 3) and to his soft definition, which the ideal lens did of the Petzval for portrait.

Bests Regards: David.

Wonderful!! I wish we had such lenses for DSLR's (well I have some, but very different to Petzval lenses...)
