Errors and misses ... fun stuff.
« on: November 12, 2008, 11:07:40 PM »
Time to "fess up" gang. ;)

We all get some goofy pictures now and then....animals or people move or do something funny when we don't expect.  Click. Ooops.  Or something just goes awry and we end up with a terrible picture. Terrible? Funny?

Special thanks to Dominic for the concept!
:) 

I'll start with a classic missed shot of a bluejay.

Let's see 'em! :P

A few years ago my wife and I were fishing on a trout stream. She landed a nice rainbow trout and we wanted a picture--she does not fish very often. She held it up and just as I took the picture it wriggled and she responded....could never act this out. ;) She loved the picture and had a framed print in her office for years.

My first attempt to capture a bee with my (new at the time) Minolta 100mm macro. He was sitting right where that flower is in focus.

Posted on "Damn - missed him" but my first (of what could be many) contribution to this thread.



I'd spent about 20 seconds setting up what should have the perfect composition with the butterfly sitting perfectly still. So of course just as the shutter button was being pressed the butterfly decided on a change of venue - grrrrr....

I can see now i am going to have to have another folder on flickr for stuff ups :-)

I generally delete anything that is not 'worthy', l kept this one simply because it was funny at the time, Ruby [gd#2] was standing back from the camera showing me her chocolate face when she decided to take a closer look as i pushed the shutter

A carp not happy about having his picture taken.

Fother you should have tried to get the flying rat in focus so that with a very small change of angle it looks like the lorikeet was on it's back :)

Lovely colours and sharpness on the bird - which one of your excellent lenses was that with?

Minolta 300 / 4.0 + Minolta APO-II 1.4 TC, taken standing in the doorframe of my back door (two feet from where I sit right now).

I then moved outside to get a better angle, but the lorikeet flew away :)
