The camera moved. The flower moved. The manual focus was probably wrong anyway.

But I was ever so tempted to pretend that I meant it to look like that!

The bird moved. I moved. Probably should have clicked the shutter at some other split-second point in time.

I was going to post this in the 'Phone shots you're pleased with' thread, but I didn't want other people to feel bad about their lack of phone camera skills:

Too slow shutter turned little yappy dog into a blurry fuzzball.

I still need to figure out how to get the camera to focus in one spot, preferably in the middle of the frame.

Perhaps not so much bad, as inadvertent. Had the 200-600 on my A9 taking pictures of my wife on our new iSUP (inflatable Stand-Up Paddleboard). Camera was sitting in my lap and I leaned over to grab something and rested my arm right on the shutter button

Extreme RAW image recovery samples from the A9...

So I was shooting with the 24-105 @ f/8, switched to the 85mm, and had it set to f/2. On the first shot, the main flash didn't fire. On the second shot, the flash fired, but because I had been shooting at f/8, the flash power was still set from the prior f/8 shots, so it was severely over-exposed.

Original images on the left, with recovered images (Using Capture One) on the right. The over-exposed couldn't quite save the brightest part, but did pretty darn good.
