Default Post your "That could have been better" photos

Hey guys, just wondering what sort of shots you have that could have been so much better, whether it be bad focus, wrong setting or whatever. Mine was taken while trying to pan in single auto focus mode instead of C-AF! One of those likely never to be repeated moments. Most of the airshow was S-AF so pretty gutted!

Bit like mine, perfectly framed but out of focus! Now if someone could only invent a bit of software to sort it out!

For shots like that, usually manual focus works best. Due to the magnification caused by the high zooming, the object will pass the camera's LCD/EVF real fast. A DSLR may be fast enough to lock focus but not a 30x P&S. I don't have the HS10 but I believe the manual focus is on a ring (like DSLRs) rather than a button. If that's the case, manual focusing should be a fairly easy task to accomplish.

There are threads in Dpreview's forum titled "HS10 Airshow and Static Display" and "Tricked Out HS10", it seems useful for HS10 users.

My shot was taken with my old S5600 which was only a 10x zoom. The HS10 has a manual focus ring on the barrel but I haven't used mine much.

If the image was not focus, likely any software will not help. Does S5600 has burst mode? the HS10 owner there said he used Best Frame burst mode on HS10. Obviously it is difficult to get focus on a fast moving object, in addition to 10-30x zoom, the object might disappear frequently. Didn't try but will focusing in less zoom then zooming give any help?
