A few macro shots taken with a helios 44 adapted to fit pentax cameras.
The last one is heavily cropped, but apart from that I think they are sooc.

I like the moss (No 2) best.

The moss shows the distinctive Russian swirly bokeh which in the wrong type of photograph can be distracting but in the right type adds something to the image. The moss is definitely in the "right type" category. Very nice images all, but I agree with i-berg that the moss one is very pleasing.

Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.

Excellent shots from a very good lens which can match the best from f/5.6 onwards. It also has a unique bokeh. You might be interested in this TEST
