Like 1 My favourite is #4 - plenty of 3D pop!

Very nice shots!
for flower portraits a helios 44-2 is a fantastic lens. i have around 500 lenses, but in the end i always use a helios or a trioplan 100 for flower shots.
here are 2 of mine with the helios:
the swirl


blue and gray

Great pictures Kryss, and it is a great lens, it's certainly the best glass for the money I've ever seen. Like 1 small

@planet.groove:

Very good! Especially the second photo. I like the subdued colours and how it balances between sharp in focus subject and backgound bokeh. Reminds me to use my Helios more often. Such huge creative potential in such a cheap lens. Smile

Not fond of kryss' work though, I must admit. But I'm glad at least others like it. Smile
