Reminds me of an old Nikon School ad in the Sept. 1993 NatGeo that had the famous picture of Nessie with the caption: "Some people see a monster. We see improper metering, poor lens selection, and a total lack of composition." - And, sadly (depending on how one looks at it), both this and the Canon ad are how I have begun to think over the past year or so

Quoting stevenlee505 (Reply 9): Can someone explain the caption to me? Is it because f/8 and 1/250s is the ideal setting to shoot in that setting?
No, I think it's the photographer visualising a photograph rather than seeing his girlfriend in front of him.
Quoting trvyyz (Reply 10): I don't see anything wrong with that photo. The photo looks how the photographer visualized it.
Tbh, I can't see much wrong with it either given the kind of shot it is and the light it's taken in. Yes, it's lacking contrast but that's shot into the Sun, by default there's going to be minimum contrast anyway. Level? What you levelling it against? Hotspots? Again, it's into Sun. That's gotta be the hottest spot going, no?! 'Spose it just goes to show not everyone does it the A.net way....
Having said that it's a crap picture haha.

Quoting JS98010 (Reply 13): As long as we're delving into the minds of photographers, I wonder what the photographers at Playboy, Penthouse, et. al. are thinking about while they work with their subjects?
Something like this - I stand in front of beautiful and voluptous nude women and think - F5.6 at 1/200....
