    Oh my ... I could FILL the "Just for Fun" -section with bloopers of mine! I have heaps and heaps of them... :oops:
    "Good pan bad spot" makes me smile somehow :D ... reminds me of almost all my attempts to photograph ducks in flight, and wouldn't there always bee bushes or shrubbery or twigs in my frames??? Geesh, with my attempted "ducks-in-flight-photos" alone I could fill this section with bloopers! ;)

    Yeah...:mrgreen: I could post somany more as well but these two are the most reasent.

    As for the duck, I actually have tons of problems with panning on them, nine times out of ten they are OoF and/or their wings are nothing but blur, this one was really good except for the brush that jumpped out infront of me :lmao:

    Maybe we should start a "bloopers" thread, have seen them on other forums, can be really amusing to look at, plus some of the mistakes turn out actually quite artistic :) I also have loads of candidates, but I don't want to bog down Battous thread ;-)

    hm, I just got an idea - if there was a website that would offer upload for photograper's "bloopers", you think there would be some entertaining value in it.

    Of course there would have to be some copyright provisions to it, but the idea would be that everyone would be able to upload images that they took in "blooper" category and those images would be displayed on that site after editorial approval. May be some contests and stuff...

    It would be non commercial, entertainment value only site. Do you think people would visit it and find it interesting and entertaining?

    I'll throw this one out there. The shot I have been looking for and somehow my camera screwed it up (it couldn't have been MY fault...;-) :banghead::banghead::banghead:).

    Here is one of my older ones, it was a misfire at my desk.

    Taken with Canon FD 50mm 1.4 on Canon EF, ASA 800

    Took me forever to figure out what it was...Even then I still could not tell you how I managed to under expose it that much all things considered.

    My all time favorite blooper can be found Here. I liked that one so much I felt it deserved a thread of it's own in the general gallery.

    A couple others of mine from over the years:

    Don't shoot birds through the leaves....it don't work

    Shot with Vivatar 400mm on Vivitar 2X TC on Canon EF handheld
    [​IMG]

    Yeah...two and a half minuets of exposure time still did not work.
    Shot with Canon 50mm 1.4 on Canon EF, ASA 800
    [​IMG]

    ...Another misfocus (AF)
    Taken with Kodak C743

    Don't ask :lol:
    Taken with Kodak Signet 40
