    G’day!
    Has anyone experienced this type of inverted bokeh/reflection before?
    Refer to left/centre of frame..

    No, seen it never before. It's strange.

    But, welcome to the Café

  4. Looks like a flare - it's been the explanation for a couple of "UFO" photos...

    Never seen such a well defined reflection before, but this does look like flare induced by the bright ****** dog.

    It's a reflection of the dog. Common flare issue.

    If you rotate the image 180°, the dog will be in the exact same spot.

    Thanks guys!
    It’s a pretty cool flare. Don’t think I’d be able to replicate it again.

    Sure you can. Shoot a bright light that's got a dark background using the same lens......... and filter if you used one.
