My first try at bread baking

Hi everyone,

First of all, I love this site! This is my first post, and hopefully you will see me more often. 

So last night I baked my first batch which yields 3 smallish ciabattas. Here are some pictures. I think they turned out to be great considering this is my first time. 

I followed Peter Reinhart`s recipe and used poolish. Here you go;

Were they tasty as well? I really like Reinhart's recipe for mushroom ciabatta from crust & crumb. :)
