This is a sunset taken with a catadioptric 500 mm lens.  I took several of these after adjusting the lens off infinity and shooting blind (since I didn’t want the sun, as seen through a catadioptric 500 mm lens to be the last thing I ever saw through the viewfinder).  The effect I was going for was to get the sun to form a donut of light, which I came pretty close to here.

Fot this one I just played around with the lightness and saturation to get the effect I wanted.
