    Worst Rolex / Tudor Watch Pic...Evah!!

    We have some great photographers on the site and some beautiful watch porn. Then there are the rest of us. The shots that didn't come out quite right. The background that sounded great in theory but lacked something in practice. The bad lighting, bad focus, bad day. The one where the dog bumped your legs or the watch shut its eyes just as you clicked. Or just rotten picture takers who can do everything right and still come up with something that looks like it was taken underwater in a dark closet.

    I know they're out there so c'mon, guys, show us what you can't do.

    I'll start with a truly incompetent entry in the iPhone category:

    badpic.JPG

    It's out of focus. Out of frame. And I managed the lighting to perfectly obscure the date rendering it unreadable.

    I think I deserve extra points for loading it sideways instead of straight up and down. Seems to add that extra something.

    No need to apologize, I can understand not wanting to show a date, when you were supposed to be working.

    If you come to a fork in the road; take it, and then put it down so someone else can use it.

    No worries. I can multi-task.

    How was coffee?

    Typical of my bad pictures, not even sure you can make out which ones are Rolexes... Understand this is me at my best, I delete the real bad ones!

    I have 3 decent shots of my sub that I use over and over, because I can rarely take a good shot. They typically look like this..

    The camera on my iPad really is dreadful, I was trying to take a real picture to post on a "look what I just bought" thread but it ended up looking like one of those "Is my Rolex real" pics.
