Poppy Flower Wonder

This image is taken by Voigtlander 40mm f2 SL

This picture reminds me of a time that I would not buy any lens but voigtlander. That was a period where I was addicted to the build quality of Voigtlander lenses and their image rendering characteristics.

Yes, the brand is not all perfect and its own lens production line had been taken over by Cosina in Japan. The lenses are just so good to hold in my hands... Truely addictive.
Speaking of the bokeh, I used to have a set of criteria for assessing them. Then I looked at this image taken almost 3 years ago. I had second thoughts.

How on earth do I like the harsh edge bokeh with distracting specular highlights? I guess I have a growing up period with photography in general. Now this pair of critical eyes are very hard to please. I dreaded the day I would become even more grumpy and critical when I got even older. God helps me.
