The bokeh in the first one is very appealing, enough structure to give some visual interest without being too scandalous. I like that photograph very much. However, in the second the bokeh seems much more in my face. Fascinating how the same lens gives different effects, depending on the scene and the distances to the subject and the background.



Yes, I was trying out different effects with the lens wide open. The second one probably needs some elves and fairies to complete it. 

I've had this lens since the 1980s, used it on the Nikon F3 but only stopped down. In those days f/1.4 was provided to give you a bright screen for focussing, not for the actual photos. And bokeh hadn't been discovered.

Now that I have a FF digital camera, this lens has come out of a long hibernation.
