Delicate approach. It gives details and soft mistery in the depths.
The arrange of the series makes for interesting patterns when look at in the phone (I'm afraid that's how I'm doing it for now)

Thank you, Armando, Birna, and Anthony.

Fons, thank you for the identification.

Frank, it is not intended as [Theme], but feel free to post your images.

Paco, thank you.  I, too, sometimes feel the vertical screen of a smartphone is suitable for certain images.

FWIW, all images were shot with the lens wide open.  I feel the bokeh of this humble not-so-little 50/1.8G is quite competitive.

The only lens that I have smaller than the 50 1.8 afs is another 50mm, the e series manual focus

Very often I would want a pancake lens.  Those thinnest 50mm Nikon lenses are attractive.  In fact, I envy Canon users because they are offered with the truly humble little 40/2.8 STM.

I've used 45/2.8P which was nice but surprisingly turned out to be a little less ghost-resistant than AF-S50/1.8G, even though it had fewer elements/groups.

Robert, thank you for posting.  I haven't seen bamboos in such peculiar this patterns.  They look cool.   8)

I really like my Voigtlander 40/2. It’s a gem that I highly recommend.
