Capturing cascading water and color by Peeb-OK, on Flickr
Just posted this in the 'photoception' thread- but it's the most broken thing I've shot recently. My nephew at Big Cedar Missouri. Sad story, really, but it needs a little explanation to see how it depicts 'broken'.
We went on a nature walk together and came upon this lovely waterfall just before sunset. He set up his tripod for a long exposure of the water and hiked on a bit further since I had cleverly forgotten my tripod and I was tired of pestering him to borrow his. When I looked back I saw him setting up for the shot and I liked the light so I stopped and captured this. One of my favorites now.
OK- the sad part is that he he thought he really had a super nice shot until he got home and pulled it up on his computer. He had completely forgotten that he had been experimenting earlier with back-button focus so that EVERY shot on the hike was out of focus since he had forgotten to use the proper button and it was not obvious on the little LED screen on the camera. Ugh!
So- although it was self-inflicted, this photo hike left this fine youg gentleman broken hearted!

I happened to look outside and this fellow and his riding buddy ( you can just see the top of his doorag above the gas tank ) had just started adjusting something on the bike. You can see the wrench in his hand and the toolkit on the seat. It was broken for a bit only, as he was able to ride it away from our street at least.
