Some close up with mirror lens
Your blur looks like bubbles.
I'm not overly crazy about it.
It has been my experience over the years that few people find the doughnut shaped bokeh produced by catadioptric mirror lenses attractive.
I've never heard of a mirror lens before. What lens is it?
I like that last shot. The color is great, the bubbles are less pronounced and what's in focus is interesting, the others are bit on the busy side for my taste.
Was that shot during the rain or something ? #2 looks really curiously as the doughnuts are everywhere, in the front, on the subject and behind.

Thanks for coments, second picture was taken during the rain
I used Samyang 500mm f6.3, wich focus from 2m to infinity
You really went all-out on the bokeh! Good job on turning raindrops into bokeh dots!
I still remember the olden days when "bokeh" meant creamy-smooth blur balls.
Now it's just whatever.
...[crawling back to cave]...
technically, the term "bokeh" was originally adapted to photography to discuss the aesthetic quality of the out of focus areas. Not just the specular highlights.
Here I sit in my cave; wondering what the hell is going on, staring at my stone axe and trying to imagine doughnut-shaped balls of fuzzy light in my OOF background.
Feeding my dire wolves the remnants of my saber-tooth tiger dinner.
And I remember the glorious days when the word "bokeh" didn't even exist in the English language and people used the background as an element of the image. Now days people seem to blur the crap out of the background, and often a fair portion of the subject for good measure, to disguise the fact that they have no concept of what constitutes good composition.
