Lesson #1 - check camera settings before shooting.

My camera is normally set on Aperture priority and Continuous mode - this is a shot looking down on a seagull skimming across the top of the waves at 1/10sec.
(I have another 5 shots almost the same)

My apologies for posting what is probably my worst photo but I actually quite like it and hopefully some beginners may learn from my mistake.

To heck with beginners Jack, even though we all really are in that category,nobody knows it all:-)I think I'll try out your mistake as it makes for a great Abstract:-)Definately a good point to remember,check your settings before pressing that shutter,that includes your ISO, but you have to admit,this is a neat mistake.

Hi Jack, try having the camera set on monochrome and grabbing it for a sunset shot...I actually like this though, especially the ghostly gull. Fiona

As has been said this is a nice abstract and looks very creative. TFS
