Hi Umesh,

Within the last week or so I recall someone posting that they had gotten the AB Beauty dish and we asked for photos but I'm not sure if they were ever posted and I don't recall seeing a review or followup post. Perhaps a 'beauty dish' search will find it.

EDIT: Found it.. http://photography-on-the.net ...857&highlight=beaut​y+dish. See post #12
There is one sample and you might want to PM the poster (charlesu) of the image. He owns it and apparently knows how to get good results with it.

I got one. I've only had my beauty dish for less than a week and only have shot with my ab's once (temproary setup in my living room to make sure things worked)... so I haven't done a "real" shoot with it yet but here is what I got.

(dish and ab800 hitting subject, and ab800 for background)

Honestly.. I could've gotten the same effects (same type of shot) using my small strobes... But I will experiement with it more once I do a real shoot on location & have some time.
