Sometimes you are not there for the start of the action or you miss the end of it. For various reasons you can miss the split second at the height of the action. It would be nice if it worked out every time. You would hope the exposure you chose captured everything and not blow out highlights. Our own excitement, the speed of the action, the changing light, the unpredictability of the subject can lead to all sorts of outcomes not all of them ideal. Speaking to pros, they admit they should be more ready from practice, but there is plenty of room for mixed results. I was talking about this with someone we met in the field and he had stories to tell of near misses, but he also said there was usually something he could salvage to improve his mood. It’s reassuring to know I am not alone.
