Masterful selective focus to make the most of the bokeh

Very nicely done - especially the gargoyle.
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

Thanks for the comments. The gargoyle was shot at 1.7 I have missed focus a bit being just a little too far forward, but I think I got away with it.

The other two were at f1.2 I used the K1 articulating screen in LV mode to frame and focus. By tilting the screen up i was able to keep the camera low. Focussing this way with a close subect is a challenge and I used the zoom function at 100% moving the camera backwards and forwards to achieve focus. The 50mm 1.2 lens is very unforgiving when it comes to missed focus.
