Best Of The Worst: Focus F#ck Ups

Challenge #3 in the The Human Photographer series. Hosted by Stormcastle, TheAnonymousGhost.
Challenge has finished
READ CAREFULLY: This challenge is for those pics of yours that are nearly 100% great - except the focus isn't where you wanted it to be - and we've all had that happen when we're too lazy to use manual focusing. Depth of field errors are also welcomed in this challenge as most of us have had that go wrong, too.

I missed my tripod so I let my camera on an upside-down bucket on the shore, set in manual focus. As soon as the camera touched the bucket, it moved a bit, causing the focusing ring to rotate and lose the precise focusing distance.
