Welcome to Farktography!

This Week's Theme: "Oops...The Inept Farktographer II"

: Show us your screwups! The photo with the pole growing out of the subject's head, the wrong film settings, your finger in front of the lens. Difficulty: No photos of lens caps.

We ask that before submitting your photos you read and adhere to the following submission rules, including but not limited to the following:
- Submissions must be photographs; screen captures do not count as photographs.
- You must be the original photographer of your entry. Do not submit anyone else's photography as your own.
- You are only allowed to enter a photograph once. Do not submit the same photo to another contest later.
- You may enter 3 photos in each contest as long as each photo is of a different composition.
- Please post each photo separately so they can be voted for individually.

Please note:
The overarching ideal behind Farktography is that image corrections are acceptable, while adding or removing elements in the image (e.g. removing telephone poles, adding Elvis) is not acceptable. Levels, curves, contrast, saturation, crop, and black-and-white conversion tools may be used judiciously, but not to cartoonish or unrealistic extremes. Avoid applying artistic filters for the purpose of mimicking film, tilt-shift, toy camera, etc type effects. HDR and panorama stitching either in-camera or in post processing are not allowed unless specified for a particular theme (true multiple exposures done in-camera are acceptable, however). See the rules for more information on acceptable modifications, or check in at the Farktography Forums.

Legal: All photographers submitting photos to this contest are the legal copyright holders for the photos submitted and the photos are not to be considered free for any other use without written consent from the submitting photographers.

The shot before and after are in focus...maybe my camera thought I needed a shot of the women in the background doing push-ups.

Thank you Mr. Weise for popping into the shot.

When your lens is an inch and a half away from a fast moving subject: Focus? Good enough. Timing? Perfect. Lighting? Sat. Composition? Ah, fark.

This was supposed to be a water droplet, but I didn't have the drip timed right, the flash dialed in to stop the motion, or the water at the right viscosity.

Too wide and out of focus, missed it like the guy missed the ball (which is also half missing)

It's a bird on the dock at St Augustine - but you knew that, right?
