Well I guess I still havent learned my lesson... Trip to Seaworld with all except 8 students in Grade One at our school, first stop the indoor penguin exhibit, and who was the numbskull who forgot that the last time I used the camera it was on manual focus.... No wonder I couldnt get a clear shot of them diving....

Hello Fiona, you have still managed an interesting shot despite the camera setting;the air bubbles coming off the back of the penguin give a good impression of the speed that it was swimming.And the blurred bg adds to the overall effect.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Hi Fiona it's an easy mistake to make but it did not turn out all that bad, lucky for you.The composition is great,friendly regards Otto.

It was a good mistake. I like the blur that denote action and especially the stream of air bubbles from the back. Good contribution to Friday's theme. TFS

This is wonderful ! I love the timing and the bubbles behind him.... well composed. TFS Julie

| nice shot as has been remarked however it would have been much better. Our cameras have so many features its easy to forget our last setting. I did read that someone also puts their camera back to standard setting after using an unusual one.
