Every now and then I take photos that fall short of being truly successful somehow yet I keep as a reference for improvement in the future.
Oftentimes these are taken on the occasions when I’m carrying less kit. The irony of this can be I don’t use a tripod, check the focus, alter the lighting with shadow or flash, yet feel free-er to spot these almost-shots.
Frankly I like these pictures a lot but blown up for a print competition or even just a reasonably large screen, they fall short technically. Competitions demand a lot; a topic for another day perhaps.
