Challenge has finished
Failure can be a great teacher. To learn from our mistakes we must take ourselves on and ruthlessly critique the poorer shots, to avoid them in future. In this challenge, show us an image in which something went wrong and you were left with a throw-away. Tell us what went wrong, what was the human mistake. Your mistake. Blaming the camera, the subject, the weather, etc. won't do. Include the lesson learnt. A WORD ON VOTING: As the submitted are *required* to be flawed in some way, do NOT vote on the image - vote on the description instead.

What happens when you have your lens hood on wrong.
|Submitted:||Saturday, 7th August, 2010 17:29 (GMT)|
|Taken:||Saturday, 22nd September, 2007|
|Focal length:||6 mm|
|Shutter speed:||1/160 sec|
|Notes:||The hood was mounted improperly, being 90 degrees off, with the two longer ends being at the right and left. This causes the hood to been seen at the wide end of the zoom range. I ended up having to crop these photos too much, and have learned to always check the hood orientation.|
