Missed comet... by thewatersphotos

Missed comet...

So the more I look at this photo the more I think I may have "missed" the comet shot I was looking for!

Look at the bottom of the photo. Do you see the tail? Take a look at someone's photo with a good view of the comet. Then look at the arrangement of the two stars above the tail. I think they match. When shooting night sky photos, it is hard to see what you have shot until you get to the computer. I'm afraid I shot just too high and missed my comet shot. :- )
Love the cloud and sky.

That’s a shame, these shots are so difficult to catch!

You got more than I did.

How frustrating!

This made me smile. I've done that so often! And yes, I agree...I think you caught the comet tail (so didn't really miss it entirely!).

I love that you can see where it was! Can't tell you how many times I have photographed an action scene only to find it had left the image before I pressed the shutter as it turned out!

@kvphoto Thanks, KV! It was amazing to process the pictures and see what "developed".

@casablanca Thank you! Yes, I read once that if you "see" the image in your viewfinder, you are too late to shoot.
