Good: You submit your photo for competition and win!
Bad: You can no longer find it in you catalogue/collection.
Spoiler: You can only show it digitally with a resized thumbnail
Good: You buy a brand new camera that almost takes the photos for you.
Bad: You need 200 hours of course work to figure out how to use the various functions.
Spoiler: You just cannot deal with the Bad so:
You continue to shoot on Program or Automatic.
You need to carry a cheat sheet which means every photo takes several times as long to shot
You learn as much as you can
So, we have all been one of the above, or some other situation that plays games with our hard work. Life is like that. I do try not to get too bent, because I realize that there is never a final perfect shot. There are always more.
