Post an image that you know was just mostly luck. Perhaps you were just in the right place at the right time, perhaps it was a quick shot and you did not have the settings correct, yet it still turned out great, or maybe the shutter speed was to low and you had blur but it turned out great etc.. Be honest here please.
