Small Cactus - How Not To

From the How (Not) To Department

Today’s post is a little different. I could use my imagination and say, “The cactus is about to cross the finish line.” or “How does a cactus enter a saloon in the Old West?”. The truth of the matter is I didn’t pay attention to the details; if I would have taken about 5 seconds I could have removed the distracting elements before I pressed the shutter button.

Yes, I could have gone in and cloned out the 5 distracting elements, but it would have taken too much of my time to do it right. I decided to show the photo and create this post on the importance of checking all of the elements in the area before you press the shutter button. I don’t know about you, but I’d rather spend more time behind the camera than in front of the computer cleaning up “mistakes”.
