    OK, so everyone here always posts their best shots, but let's admit it, no one nails it every single time.

    This is for all of those "other" shots that might have been great, with the exception of one or two minor oopsies.

    I'll start:

    ^^Not a great loss - I think a good lolcats caption would fix that one :)


    If only...
    …He was in focus…
    …There was light…
    …I wasn't taking the photo from inside the moving car…
    …It had better composition…
    etc…

    (This was on a long country road btw with quite a distance to the next town, epic commitment)

    if only I had rolled down the windows. It's only water. Drive by shootings are so hard to accomplish.

    If only I had a camera with me when I've seen some of the things I've seen.

    I hear that. This evening I wish I had one. The clouds were super dramatic I wish I could have caught them.

    Great idea for a thread. If only I hadn't deleted all of my "if only" shots!

    If only I had waited one millisecond longer I could have got a shot of this entire kayak out of the water and inverted above the river:

    Likewise, if I had fired two milisecond earlier I could have caught this climber in mid air, between holds, and with her face not covered by her arm...

    I dig the shots, but wish I had a faster burst rate on my XSi!
