Fascinating images, Klaus!  the f1.9 lens handles the light marvelously.  It is literally visionary!  :D

Proof that "sharpness" is not necessarily required.  Lovely effects from the mystery lens.

This is pictorialism.  Achieved, as it was in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, by the lens' image forming qualities.  A pleasing break from the look of computer-designed exactness.

Right Keith, this is the better term indeed!! I have lenses from that era, too.

Certainly a very different "look", fuzzy with glow but pleasing to look at.
