It's just something we both wanted to try to see how it looked, yes it was solely for the reflection. Here's one of our previous shots as well.

Actually, she was very hot, this was the end of our shoot and it was about 95 degrees out. We went down to the creek for the last shots and to cool off. Even her Mom was walking through the water with us to cool off some.

First photo looks out of focus... Why shoot at 1.8?

^^ on the top one, the tip of the chin and the wrist are in focus but the eyes are not. The second one is great. Pretty girl. Here's one more of a senior I did over the summer. I just can't get over how old she looks in this one. We did do more smiling but she really liked this one.

I like the 1st one more than the 2nd one but agree, 85mm f1.8 isn't sharp wide open from my experience.

A couple from a recent senior session. Lighting was an Einstein and a Buff 35" foldable octabox.

Good question, so far I have had limited success shooting wide open. Note the second picture was shot at 2.0 on the 50mm 1.2 and I had better luck with focus. First shot I was trying to get creamy bokeh..
