This was the first thing I photographed when I got the 50mm f1.4 lens. It's the globe that was in the reflection of the counter top for Weekend Reflection #22.
I took the same shot 15 times with each aperture from f1.4 to f7.1. Don't ask me why, I just did. They all look good, some are better than others, but I wish I had done the experiment more scientifically. I should have used a tripod and remote shutter release to put them all on equal footing.
Lots of detail in the reflection. You can see me in the foreground, the patio door that leads to the back yard on the right. The dark rectangle to my left is a doorway to our Family Room, with sconces on each side of the door. A clock above the doorway. The light fixture above my head and to the right is behind me, over the kitchen table. Enough already!
