Re: Rubinar 500mm f5.6 mirror

Thanks tjuster1,

the Rubinar's output is not very contrast-heavy, so in pp I left the background pretty much as it is but using curves added contrast to the in-focus guy in the foreground.

Most of these are mirror lenses I took using Oly & Canon DSLR's:

It is possible to get nice clean bokeh with mirror lenses (this one is a Tamron 55BB 500mm f8 and is pretty much how the jpg looked out-of-cam, but with less contrast):
