Have you ever had a moment where you look at a picture on the tiny screen of your camera and thought, “Gee, this is such a perfect picture.” Then, when you blow the picture up on your desktop, you’re like, “What in the world!”
I had about a thousand of these moments on the morning of my second day of my trip to Chicago. I remember I was super excited as I inserted the SD card into my laptop, tapping my fingers impatiently on the desk. I couldn’t wait to see what incredible nightlight I captured.
And then, the pictures came up and all my excitement immediately drained away, in its place was disappointment. I couldn’t believe it. Almost every single picture was blurry and out of focus. I tried to fix it with a variety of photo editing software but nothing worked, if not, I might have made it worse.
I thought it was because my old camera didn’t have enough megapixel. So I tried to take night pictures with my new camera last Friday at the Christmas party, not much better. My new camera was 20.2 megapixels and the old camera was 7.2 megapixels. Perhaps, I need a tripod to take a steady night shot. I don’t know. I’m glad for this photo challenge because it gives me a chance to share my outtakes. I deleted a lot of them and these are the ones I thought it’s okay. I hope you’ll enjoy them.
P.S. I wasn’t even planning on sharing them. I was going to keep them locked up forever in my hard drive but, since I want to complete the pictures collection from my trip which you can view here…
