    Stephen - what lens did you use for that? A reflector or something?

    Used at 40mm Summicron at f2 on mt GF1 that I braced on my knee. Was sitting in a chair and this angel ornament is on a table, about 6 feet from our Christmas tree.

    No reflector used - out of camera jpeg

    What's out of the frame, immediately to the left is a table lamp that is illuminating the angel.

    Yeah, but it has that "donut" bokeh like a reflector ... well, not quite that bad, but same idea.

    Given the subject, I prefer to think of it as "halo" bokeh ...

    :rofl:
