/ Bad day out
Being self-employed, I'm guilty of only going out on the days that I know are going to produce some good images (and therefore give me inspiration for new paintings). This coming winter however, I plan to rough it in some horrible weather too - it's about time I painted some clouds and rain!!
Just 'one' bad day?!....you novice! :-)
Ha, puts it in perspective. Digital does spoil us.
I recently scanned a bunch of old 35mm shots and came to some interesting conclusions; OOF shots don't seem too bad and are almost charming, everything is of lower quality but because you don't really look at them over 4x6" it doesn't matter. Colour and dynamic range aren't great but with all of that the keeper rate of those shots was far higher than digital, probably 1 in 2 rather than the 1 in 5 or 10 with digital.
That said I would probably have deleted most of those shots if they had been done with digital. Much of the problem I think is that I sit and look at the photos blown up over most of my 24" monitor so any imperfections really show up
