Your most artistic BAD Disney photos

We have a very popular thread on the most artistic Disney photos, which is the most popular (and probably the longest) thread in this forum.

So I thought, what could compliment that thread better than the antithesis of the wonderful photos we have seen in there? Why, a thread on all the BAD Disney pictures that we have taken!

I am certainly not immune to that, and I have plenty of bad pictures that just didn't come out right one way or another. So if you have any clunkers out there (sorry I can't give you cash for your clunkers like the US Govt. can with your cars), let's see it! Be proud of your bad photos and let the world know that you are not a shame one bit to say that you took them!

laugh

Here's mine.

This is why taking fireworks shots with a point-and-shoot is really not that trivial. The camera needs something to "focus" on, so you just can't have your finger on the shutter trigger ready to go in anticipation of the next firework shot. The camera will be in the ready mode, sure, but it's focusing on something else already and not on what you want it to.

I have way too many of these badly-focused fireworks shot.

BTW, if I didn't know any better, I wouldn't rule out the possibility that this is the SAME guy who ruined my castle fireworks shot! He's stalking me even at Epcot! laugh

Great idea, Zapperz! And I DO think you have a "bad photo stalker." What else could explain it?!?

We have TONS of shakey fireworks shots. And too-dark fireworks shots. And just missed the fireworks fireworks shots. And blurry fireworks shots.

Great idea for a thread.

Here's your chance to post them. Own them, and be proud of them!

cdub It is possible (Zz does it all the time) but you need a camera with a REALLY SLOW shutter speed AND a steady tripod and a five gallon bucket of patience to deal with any stray heads popping up like Zz,s stalker laugh !! I have the equipment but not the patience
Also I understand that Zz does it without the fancy equipment either biggrin .

If the people weren't so calm looking I'd think that was a disaster photo.

This one's not as dramatic as Zapperz, but here's one where the focus didn't quite come out right...

Here's another one that didn't come out right at all. I think you can guess where this is, can't you?

greebil is close. This is the first climb at Everest, right at where you pass under the first drawing of the Yeti. This was taken at night, without a flash. That's why it is so blurry.

I kept wondering where I had seen that orange glow.

Here's another really bad one. It's a double whammy - the subject was moving, and I was moving, and I thought I could snap a picture with my flash turned off, which is what you had to do on this attraction.

No, but you're on the right track. It is an indoor attraction. Smile

The subject looks kind of like an armadillo on a tree. I'm racking my brain...

I NEVER would have guessed! That upper left-hand corner "whiteness" looks too much like artificial sunlight. biggrin

I think most people use ImageShack or PhotoBucket and then post links. You can also use the attachments at the bottom.

Yep -- lots of people use imageshack, photobucket, or picasa to upload their photos. Then they take the [IMG] version of the link and post it into the main reply box.

Down at the bottom of the reply page, however, there's an "attachments" section where you can upload your photos, too. This makes for smaller photos, but it's easier than uploading them elsewhere.

Hey, TD -- if you'd like, you can send the photo to me via email (webmaster@wdwforgrownups.com) or Private Message. I'll try to figure out what the problem might be and will PM you back with more detailed instructions. mickey
