    thanks everyone.

    That reflection is a big silver disc reflector for bounce light. Unfortunately, I was holding the disc while I pulled the lens cap with my right hand. I wasn't able to see the potential issue since I composed, focused, and then setup the reflector/made the exposure. Since I was doing the whole thing by myself, I couldn't both hold the reflector and compose, so I didn't notice that it would show up until the image was already made. Oh well, a learning experience with each plate. I still like the image, however, and if I knew the reflector would be so prominent, I think I would have tried to completely white out his glasses.

    Hm. I thought it was evening clouds or something. I like the look, but, since it's just a reflector it has no meaning and brings undo attention to the photographer, in my opinion. But, I sure do like stuff reflected in glasses, when there's a reason:
