The 'nearly made-its'


Recommended Posts

Most of us probably had at least two shots that we were considering as our entry for the One Challenge and with so many excellent entries it would be interesting to see which shots didn't quite make it so please post your 'nearly made it' in this thread.

 

I'll start the ball rolling with "Focal Point".

I only had 3 shots in my film that were not completely ruined by light leaks in that "new" refurbished M3 :-(

 

Lesson learnt - never use a brand new camera without first completing the testing on it.

 

And the worst thing is - I put my last 3 rolls of Kodachrome through it too and they also came back today ruined.

The team of the Osteria San Marco was extremely helpful, please find two more images taken there below.

 

I have sent them prints, firstly for reviving me with an excellent caffè and secondly for joining in the spirit and supporting my quest for an image worth to be shown.

Ravi, I can only second that. Not only the challenge ruined, but also the last 3 rolls of the Kodachrome

- may the power of good light be with you next year ! Will post something here soon.

Thanks Guys - I had no chance of winning as the shot by John was a clear class leader but I am dissapointed in this camera which I bought as it was made in a "special" year for me and was my "dream" to won such a camera. Those that saw it, know it looked special but alas, beauty is only skin deep so off to the techies it goes.

Venetian Pizzeria. I felt the irony was a bit too subtle.

 

Exhaustion. Didn't like the angle. Wish I had got down a bit lower.
