Default What happened here?



The flag was behind the jeep, the people, on the beach in front.
I was shooting the flag in the side mirror and this is what happened...

This is a single digital shot from my D70 body with Tokina At-x 80/200 attached.

that is pretty cool. Must be some kind of reflection either on the lens glass itself, or on the mirror.

Was there any other glass in between the camera and the mirror?

Pic taken at steep angle/high zoom to mirror I'm guessing? Reflection off of your lens of what was in front of you onto the mirror you were shooting into. Snap= both images.

I was seated in the drivers seat shooting forward and caught the flag in the mirror. I adjusted the zoom to fit the flag in as pictured. None of the beach/water/people were visible through the lens

They don't have to be visible to you in the view finder for their image to be reflected off the lens. Hold up your lens facing you and look at the reflection. In the reflection you'll see a lot of stuff behind you that won't necessarily be in the view finder or picture. That reflection can be picked up as a ghost image off the glass that you don't see with the naked eye.

My wife explained it better, she's the one getting paid for her pictures
