I'm told by some photographers that this kind of UWA bokeh "rips into their soul and murders their inner child." I don't mind this shot myself...

The lens is a Sigma 10-20 f/4-5.6 on a Metabones Speedbooster (The first generation ones), Nikon mount flavor.

All hail hypnopigeon, our new glorious overlord and spiritual liege.

Crazy effects from a Sigma 50-100mm f/1.8A on a Kenko Pro 300 1.4x TC + Speedbooster Ultra, which negate out in the end.
The Sigma actually produces beautiful, smooth bokeh. That combination of the TC, the fauna, the focal length and being wide open at f/1.8A produces this really, really wild looking, unusual, trippy and swirly bokeh.

Bonus points if you can figure out what the colored lights are part of.

I recently picked up a cheap used copy of that Zhongyi 20mm "micro" lens... I wondered about that three-bladed iris...

no cream here, at all!
Exceptionally nervous bokeh created by closely spaced vegetation pattern just at the right distance in the OOF area, with a Pentacon 50mm f1.8 wide open

f4 on the two-blade diaphragm of the F.Zuiko 32mm f1.7 (from Pen EED) gives this style of speckled highlight

Taped off the sides of an old UV filter, and shot through the window screen for good measure.
