These are images taken on my K3 with a Helios 44-2 that I've modified the aperture blades on to produce square bokeh.
Any thoughts?

Sorry doesn't quite work for me. Most bokeh highlights have to
be more circular, but not completely circular. The Tomioka 55mm f1.2
42mm has part of the rear element cut away to fit into the throat
of a 42mm camera and it looks quite nice..... see.....

It's an interesting experiment. I'm not sure it works as a general thing, but there may well be some images that it will suit very well.
Best regards, John

on the last image, with the head, I think it works really well. Crystalline appearance.

The last image does have something, but I'd ask why we need the left side of the picture? I would crop at a point that eliminates that out of focus half and the vertical white slash, then we get a powerful graphic image left.
Best regards, John

The different shades of green in the last one do look nice.
