Photos that didnt quite work!

We've all done it, got some cracking shots, and some real stinkers, but what about those shots that, had it been in focus, or full frame, or exposed correctly, would have been good shots?

Heres one of mine from today, if only i could focus properly!


Come on, dont be shy, lets see what you (nearly)got!

I delete all my badly OOF ones now. Never used to, but I'm starting to get quite disciplined, what with the new 350 and the introduction of a proper RAW workflow.
I'm starting to get quite brutal with myself and not keeping shots for keepings sake. (Unless they're family days out of course, which is a whole new ballgame )

That said, I think I do have some badun's (well hundreds of baduns really ) from previous shoots. Will try and dig some out tonight.

This one went wrong in a slightly different way, the problem was the model, not the equipment.

Oops did I say that out loud?

he he he, I'll second that one. Here is one that I really wanted to turn out. It was of my little girl in swimming lessons. She is usually painfully shy like her mama, doesn't show much excitement really,but this time she did it and was sooo proud. I failed to get the shot though, as you can see. Actually any shots I took at the indoor pool never turned out.

Jewel, I think your names for your pictures are causing the problems as well. The [img] tags dont work if the file name has an underscore ( _ ) in it. Rename your picture and it should work fine.

Hope that helps?

awww, we here at the forums luvs ya Steve. Anyhoo, what do you mean that it won't work with and underscore in my filenames for my pics. I don't put a hyphen with my name after each pic title. My puter does that and I don't know why. example for this pic I just named it, "I did it". That's it. than it puts (-jewel) after it. How do I change that Steve?? Is that what your talking about?

Beaten to it by matty..as long as you are happy with the naming system on your PC Jewel, then on upload to the gallery you can specify a different name for the photo and it will rename it for you

With regards to my signature..I will be sticking with U2 for the near future but the lyrics will get a little more obscure. I think they will get more difficult to get unless you are using google
