    Ok i think the odds of this are similar to winning the lottery or being struck by lightning.

    I was in parlament house and while i took this snap (yes i flashed that was the first mistake) but some damn tourists were also taking a picture.
    They somehow managed to take a picture exactly the same time as I did and this is what came out (no post adjusting was done other then the resize and compression).

    If you look closely you can even see their shadow on the wall!

    Garbz took his pic at exactly the same time as the other photographer took his pic, and caught the other guy's flash illuminating the group of people.

    I have this happen at wedding receptions all the time.

    the worse part about this is i then took another photo which i was pretty happy with, but towards the end of the day walking out the room was empty but so were my batteries. Now although i got a good picture there's a lot of tourists in it :(

    What a great shot! It's funny how stuff like that happens, that's why I love photography.
