Default Self-Deprecating Portrait

This was my first try at something new. The reflection isn't in perfect focus because my wife was sleeping and I didn't want to use AF due to the volume of the screwdrive. A tad bit of motion blur on the reflection too due to low shutter speeds because since it's night time here and I used f8 for DoF...not alot of ambient light. But if you don't pixel peep, I think it actually turned out well for a first try. Think I'm gonna try again tomorrow in the daylight with a wider lens.

Thanks. I thought that the reflection was out of focus but it turns out it was due to the type of mirror. At that angle, you see 2 reflections offset by the thickness of the glass. Seemingly no way to get a sharp reflection that I could find.
