Monty, Chris, Curtis, Chuong, Matt, Leighton - I'm glad this shot caught your attention :-)
It was really just a fun-shot to show the very special look that can be created with this lens.
I've searched especially for a sparkling background to make the highlights go "pop" :-)
Peter, your thoughts are much more worth than 2c - as stated above my intention was to show the unique character of this Nikkor. I've never tried a Reflex-Nikkor or any other mirror-lens.
For most shots I prefer a creamy, smooth bokeh. The AF-S 14-24 (my daily workhorse) as an example would render out-of-focus highlights (at 24mm and f/2.8 or f/4) much less dramatic.
