Usually, no one other than me sees photographs that I make mistakes on. However, on occasion, I'll take a photo with mistakes but it still works. This afternoon, I had just such a situation.
My musician friend, Joshua Kloyda needed some photos for his new website and I agreed to shoot some photographs. We had a chance to work in a room here at the Goss Opera House that we hadn't had access to in the past, so it was fun to try out some new things. We ended up walking away with a ton of great photos. However, this one really wasn't one of them

So many mistakes!
My hand is showing at the bottom of the frame. My lens hood is showing in the top. Lens flare is happening all over and a door got into the frame on the left.
But... it still worked.
Granted, I cloned out the door and I used some tools from onOne Software to change the tonal qualities, but I still really like the photo!
Rather than being a photograph that never saw the light of day, we'll just chock this one up to one of those happy accidents!
