    Post your 'cringe-worthy' photo here

    Just for a bit of fun. We all have them. You know the photos, you was just learning how to boost saturation in Photoshop, or perhaps you were put onto how to do skin smoothing on your portraits and you went to town. At the time you thought it was stunning, but now you look back through your archives and think 'what the hell was I thinking"?

    So this thread is for you to post that photo, and get feedback on it (not to serious though). So c'mon, show us your best 'cringe worthy' efforts. Don't be shy.

    I will start it off with a seascape that I took way back in 2006 and as I had just taken up Photoshop, I was in heaven learning how to do all sorts of things with the menu. Well this is the result of an over-enthusiastic use of saturation. It must have been during my blue period...hahaha. Enjoy!.. and show me yours!

    I haven't got to many 'cringe-worthy' photos left. It took me a while, but I found out how to delete.
    Anyway, they're not all gone. I was excited with my first DSLR and I like birds.

    Loving them so far. Thanks Mark and Dylan for getting on board. I thought it could be good for our newer members to see that everyone of us started somewhere and we have all done the extreme processing along the way.

    I think I may have overcooked this HDR a little bit.

    Poorly taken, opportunity lost.

    Constructive critique of my photos is welcome and appreciated.

    Oh I have soooo many to choose from

    Over-saturation + trying to stitch wide angle shots = extraordinarily hideous

    Note to self....If you have taken sunrise shots that morning on full manual........CHECK YOUR $%@$# SETTINGS before chasing emus down the road at midday

    I thought, at the time, that star filters looked really cool.

    I am VERY familiar with the delete key - perhaps TOO familiar (I've not only deleted nearly all my worst shots, I've even deleted the RAW files of shots that with my now improved PP skills, could potentially have been made keepable), so as a result I'm not sure what I have left to post up here, but I can guarantee I can find something to add ... is there a limit to the number? ... I could probably just about flood this thread even after the heavy use of the delete key.

    Loving it!

    Some great shots there everyone. Brings us all a bit down to earth and shows that even the very best photographers can take some doosies at times.

    Looking forward to seeing more.

    I know I have some shockers, but interestingly, I think Ive lost a lot of black and white ability since then. Some of my old ones were fantastic.... My new ones.... not so sure.
