Thanks. I did a photo shoot for a 14-room B&B last week and once done with the room shots I walked around with my 50/1.4 to take a few "personality" shots around the location. The library was pretty cool.

Great shot! That's exactly what I was talking about in the challenge description.

Well done!

I really like the shot. Now let me ask a stupid question -- is the mirror out-of-focus due to post-processing, or is the image in a mirror focused at the distance of the reflected object? I'm not sure I've ever shot a photo of a mirror before, and I don't know where the focal point would be.

If you are focusing on the object in the mirror, your actual focal length is the distance from the lens to the mirror plus the distance from the mirror to the object. Optically, you are looking "through" the mirror to the object just like looking though a window. Hope this helps.

Yup. That's just what I was wondering.
