Using a soft old vintage lens on a on a Modern camera seems pointless but when I used the Helios 44-2 lens with a Nikon Z 6 I found the results very pleasing.
Maidensgrove is a hamlet above the Stonor valley in the Chiltern Hills, adjacent to Russell's Water common. It is about 5 miles northwest of Henley-on-Thames in South Oxfordshire, England. There is a 16th-century public house called The Five Horseshoes at nearby Upper Maidensgrove.
Maidensgrove common is a large piece of Common land near Henley on Thames in Oxfordshire. The photograph is from the Woodland that borders parts of the common. This woodland has an almost ancient magical or mystical feel to it. The image was processed in Adobe lightroom to give more earthy tones to the photo.
I am planning to re-visit these woods in future with additional lenses, especially trying out my Helios lens here.
I revisited the woods a week later with my 24mm-70mm F4 lens. Images below.
