I've created this thread so that those new to photography can know when they're wasting their time/battery power/memory by pointing their camera at something dumb and pushing the shutter button. One subject I propose people not shoot is ducks. Seriously, when has a duck shot been amazing? They all look the same with the duck just floating out there on the water doing nothing. Whether ROT's or plainly centered, there is never any visual interest. If you could make the duck wear a hat, I might be interested but it probably won't last long. It's the biggest dumb shot I see here repeatedly and unless you have an undying love for this aquatic avian, please don't waste your time taking pictures of it. Please post your feelings about this subject or any other subject you propose people not waste their time shooting.
