    Default Reflection

    When I took this, the AF took over and focused on the lense of the camera instead of on the individual, as I'd intended. But I kinda like the results. What do you think?

    I always encourage experimentation and sometimes, like in this shot, it doesn't work. There's nothing alternative about this shot...and it has a lot of problems including brightness distractions and unsharp focus. (Sorry)

    I think it wants to work, but I agree with marko, I would try adding some lens vignetting to it to cut down on the brightness and draw your eye more to the centre image, just a thought, then again it might not work lol.

    I must be one of those people that enjoys having the 'odd man out' opinion

    This photo actually appeals to me.

    I think a purposely made shot that was similar would probably yield better results and eliminate those blown out areas.

    My suggestion here would be to apply some sort of blur effect to the outer section of the photo. Maybe just a radial or motion blur would do the trick without going to crazy?
