Not the usual Zenitar-M 50mm f1.7 but a different lens.
Renders quite nicely at widest aperture with a soft glow.
Bokeh is pleasant

And here is one shot reproduced twice - one normally and the second in high-key.
Both were shot at widest aperture - f1.9

The lens looks very similar to the Zenitar-M 50mm f1.7 except it has no auto/manual switch.
It is also a quite different optical layout of 6 elements in 4 groups.
Here is the lens:

I have a standard bokeh test that I run with most of my lenses.
It is a type of lavender bush with spikey leaves and small flowers.
It is useful to see how smoothly the lens renders the out of focus spikey leaves in the background.
Here it is shot with the Zenitar-M 1.9/50

This shot taken at f11.
Allowing for some softness through diffraction, this is still quite a sharp lens.

Nice photos!
I have the same lens and find it to be nice.
