    My interpretation would be that you were aiming for a picture of one thing and the camera focused elsewhere

    So, the worse the photo, the better? I think I'll give this one a miss...

    Not necessarily - I wouldn't have thought the OP (well not OP but you know what I mean in this case) would have had in mind to just have entries of scraping the barrel so to speak. I seem to recall a similar topic a few months ago where the winners picture was very good even if it didn't achieve the originally desired outcome.

    Anyhow - I've entered and hope people don't think it is scraping the barrel either...I think the outcome is still quite good...but I guess we will have to see if the voting reflects that :P

    I've entered too, not sure if it's the desired effect or not :lol:

    Can we enter shots that were deliberately mis-focussed? For example, if you took a photo of a station sign with the train out of focus in the background, would that be OK?

    Depends on your intent I suppose but I cant see how you can deliberately mis-focus.

    Hmmmm - interesting one. I guess it comes down to interpretation of the topic.

    As GB says, I'm not sure you can deliberately mis-focus as if it is, then it is planned as such.

    However, I think the general guidance (especially given the time now) is to enter it - if it isn't deemed in keeping then the chances are the voting will reflect as such

    I've gone for number 6, as for me it has real atmosphere.
