SMC Pentax-M 1:1.7 50mm Asahi on K-5II (£26 purchase) - First Snaps

Just received my 50mm in the post - it was waiting for me when I got home at about 5pm (it's now just past 6), so I thought I would take some snaps to test the DOF at 1.7 (which I have been very excited about!

Here are some unedited snaps, most of which have been taken in the shade in the garden - please bear in mind this is the first time I have shot with a manual lens in about 11 years, so any tips appreciated!

Just noticed I had the focal length set to 35mm rather than 50mm, so I'm surprised it worked properly! Hihi
