My first post in the photo sharing section here, let me know what you think of this one. I wonder if the mirrored bokeh in the background is too distracting?

Ahh the smell of salt air and donut bokeh! Nice shot with a mirror but I would like to see it it cropped significantly if sharp enough to stand it. I like the colors though just as they are.

Thanks for the comments. I wasn't thinking about how much negative space it had. I have attached a cropped version, let me know if this is more what you were thinking.

Very nice. I'd pay even MORE for it like that. I don't know what software you have for processing but the tern and post sharpens up nicely if you are so inclined (yes, i had to try it to be sure. Ended up sharper than any mirror lens shot I ever made!

Not a bad result - good use of the mirror lens.

Fortunately I had enough light that day for good shutter speeds. The monopod really helped as well. As far as post, all I did on this one was process the RAW and adjusted a little for shadows and highlights in PhotoShop. I did adjust sharpness in RAW processing, just looking for the sweet spot. I did however delete probably 3-4 blurry shots for every 1 that turned out anything like this.

I posted a different one that I processed through ReDynamix to give it a little more dramatic feel and it is posted in the mirror lens club if you want to take a peek at it.
