Interesting results ... but nothing that cannot be easily done with software. It has almost the impression of the "toy" filter on some cameras.

hi,

great images!

Is that lens a tilt and shift? It looks like you changed the focal plaines.

cheers

Hey Aiden,

Tilt only as I married it to an Arax tilt-adapter with K-mount. Thanks!

Twong,

A software depthmap is certainly not the easiest thing to execute in PP and I've done quite a few elaborate ones - definitely need some skills for that, which you obviously have. Appreciate the comments!

Is this a Pentagon Six (6 x 6) lens? Try to get the other, 135 version, Flektogon 35/2.4. It's a superb lens.
