Using a contravesial lens for the first time

By hobbo
I can see that I going to have plenty of fun with the brand new Sony-fit Vivitar 500mm Mirror Lens I purchased via an Ebay seller:

I realise that this is a controversial either love it or hate it (mostly the latter I think).........I am in the first category:

I saw someone else's work with one and was mighty impressed:

This and my next post are my very first attempts using its amazingly quirky Macro/Close up focussing.........I quite like the softness:

This isn't a Coke can as it appears but the art work on the side of a delivery box............I have tiffled about a bit with image...............Quirky but it works for me:

Comments and feedback very welcome:

As a Sony owner I'm very interested in more results with this lens.
I like this picture but there's something with it. Maybe it's because it's art work on a delivery box, I don't know. It's too flat I suppose.

Looking forward to the other results!
