I have a couple of favorites, but not yet a single winner. I've realized that 
my choice depends in part whether I'm thinking of a web post or of a framed

Potty Moose
I like the image. I'm kinda curious what some of my recent acquisitions would 
do. The lens baby softens the image but does not do what some vintage lenses do 
with the bokeh.

In fairness, the LB Velvet series are about overall effect, including glow at wider apertures. I guess their Sweet or Twist lenses might get closer, or even the Soft.

I sort of intend to run a series with several 50-ish mm lenses. I moved the pot to a spot that gets some sun this time of year. Today. fast moving clouds were changing the light drastically. I did take one with a  vintage lens, Canon 58/1.2 @ f1.2, 1961 optical design. Brightened up a bit from straight out of camera. <http://galleries.moosemystic.net/MooseFoto/index.php?gallery=Olympus_List/Posts&image=_DSC0146rot.jpg>

You might prefer f2.0 or f2.8, but those will have to await more propitious 

Velvet Glove Moose

What if the Hokey Pokey *IS* what it's all about?
