Default What went wrong? - Over the falls

Fear and terror struck. So, apart from too slow a shutter speed, (1/64s), hopelessly inadequate attention to focus, and soot & whitewash due to excessive contrast in the subject, it was fine.

My excuse is that due to my very strange feet, I tend to wobble while peering into the viewfinder to make adjustments to settings.

The solution? - step back from the brink and leave the daring stuff to this obliging young couple...

(a) "Back a bit, back a bit!" (b) "Marry me, or it's over the falls with you!"

Sadly he had no evil moustache to twirl.

Hey Alan! Don't you just hate it when nothing works the way you want it to. The important thing is that you know what all went wrong and can try to correct things next time. You get an "E" for effort!

As far as I see it, your only problem is not being crazy!

Alan,
With my acrophobia I am completely sympathetic to your plight.
