Here's one from the Helios 44-4.  I am less fond it than the 44-2 (less personality and less microcontrast), but I like this one from it:

Here is (for me) an unusual shot from the Helios/6D combo.  I actually stopped the Helios down (it is a preset design, so no fixed aperture, but I would guess somewhere around f/6.3).  The Helios has so many artistic optical defects wide open, but its character changes completely when stopped down.  It basically just becomes a sharp prime.
