    Lovely shot you got there. I heave also a Helios 44-2 but my photographs result blurry and lack the sharpness, could the lens bee broken?

      Thanks.... That I am not sure off, but there is a few things you can try... first, check the lens doesn't have any misting / fungus inside by shining a bright LED light inside and have a look about, if you have a smartphone, switch on the LED torch light. If all clear then I would try the lens on your camera on a tripod in the house at a window light with a timer at different f stops and see what these are like thereby eliminating wind and shaky hands... if sharp then it is more likely to be shaky hands.... the best f stop i usually around the middle aperture and try faster shutter speeds than 1/125th.... let me know how you get on.

          The problem was hand shake and manual focusing but the tripod helped. I can wait to test It on the field. Thank you very much for the help
