Errors, Slips, And Blunders: F/Stop Follies

Challenge #28 in the The Revolver series. Hosted by Digital Alfredo, The Bacon Wagoneer.
Challenge has finished
Sometimes you just have to guess at how big or how small your aperture should be when you release the shutter... and occasionally, you get that completely wrong. Or, you trust the camera to pick the right amount, and it abysmally miscalculates. Either way, you end up with a photo that's over exposed... or one that's too dark to fix with a little fill light in PP.

Sometimes even 30 seconds is not enough, especially when using a strong ND filter. On the other hand, it was later in the day and the scene did look pretty much like this, not like what I was trying to do with it. The camera does not lie!
