Here is a photograph I took accidentally – I fired the shutter by mistake. I cleaned it up, gave it a fancy title – Impressionism – and posted it as an “artistic” shot.
I like it – but is it a work of art? Or is it still a mistake?
While setting up a composition, I accidentally hit the shutter release and had to wait a few moments until I could see through the viewfinder again. Rather than waiting for the exposure to finish, I picked up the camera and went to help a student. The result was a ghostly impression in the foreground, and a streak of moon in the sky. I cloned out the blurry streak of the moon, and replaced it with the one you see here.
