    I like the last one a lot, the bokeh is odd, but the subject really pops!

    Was the last photo taken trough a window or fence? I've had strange bokeh with both.

    No, I think it's just the lens. Or maybe just my particular copy of this lens - Russian lenses came in many varieties. I think the bokeh adds character to this photo, even if it's a bit odd. :smile:

    I almost forgot to post this photo, taken with the Panasonic 20mm:

    Terrific shots, especially the last two! I don't see anything unusual about the bokeh of the last one - I've seen similar with other legacy glass. The monkey is very sharp and clear, nice job. :thumbup:

    I took this one at the back of my house, where a little stream flows, and there are a lot of fruit trees (they collect papaya and mango). On a normal day, a group of approximately 50 of these little friends pass by, some of them with the baby on their back!

    They are very curious and willing to interact , but someone advised me not to feed them, never ever. They'll gain confidence and soon you'll find them trying to get into the house!!!
