Cherry by Soft Lenses

1-A09A5079-Gaudy

The photos here were taken from the same Cherry tree as

the previous post.   (As they are not plain 5 petals flower,

this is not Somei-yoshino) 

The softness (?  Blur) on the previous post were created by

the Focus-Shift = focused image and the out-of-focus image

were mechanically superimposed on the shot. — But here,

the softness was caused optically by the lens’ aberration.

= Those first 4 photos were taken by the homemade

single glass lens = nicknamed “Gaudy lens” .

2-A09A5063-Gaudy

Among my homemade lenses, this is the most useful,

easy to use lens.

3-A09A5072-Gaudy

You may say, the aberration of this lens is too much

though, this is what I wanted.   🙂

4-A09A5075-Gaudy

5-A09A5094-Tokina

Above those two photos, you can see the type of

softness are very different.  = The photo above and

the following 3 photos were taken by  the modified

(front diverging lens was removed)

Tokina Wide-Converter.

6-A09A5088-Tokina

7-A09A5086-Tokina

8-A09A5097-Tokina

Regardless the technical blur blur, all about

the photography (or any art) the matter is the

end result = if it is good, it’s good. 

Nothing else.   😀

(And when the result was the same, the cheaper

the cost is the better.)

      Thank you Lemony.
      In fact what I did was, just press the button — lens did the rest of the work.
