Not by far a WORST miss but just proves I had bad luck with the RCF.

So I finally find an RCF in a great spot and I go to get my shots. Great angles, I'm feeling like this would make up for all of the misses I've had with this car. Especially considering this one was specc'd so well in blue too.

Two main problems here: 1) I had to beg my sister to stop to get pictures because it wasn't a super car and I really wanted it because I still have yet to capture anything this week. So I rushed getting the shots. Usually I am quick getting shots but I chimp too. I didn't this time. 2) I turned the shutter down because it was dusk and it didn't occur to me to turn ISO up.

I think you can figure out what happened to the pictures. XD

I swear, it seems like I will never get any good pictures of the Lexus RCF.

Honestly, my "missed" shots are for the most part, either cars passing in an instant, or me just wanting to enjoy the car and not taking a photo of it. I have a load of spots, but when I try to upload them, they always turn out sideways... I think it's because I take them with my phone, but they are good pictures. Anyway, to the missed spots:
1. Porsche 918
2. Multiple Rolls Royce Phantom dropheads
3. Morgan Aero 8

Back in 2013 (I think) when I was taking my (old, terrible) camera lots of places, I didn’t once and saw a gray Aventador...
Last spring whenever I got back into taking pics of cars I decided to not take my camera on a 30 min drive (terrible idea) and saw a Lotus Elise
Uh there might be others..

I have missed two Huracans,
but my worst miss was probably a yellow with black striped Countach. This was when I was 8 however.......
I also think I saw Veyron but it was dark and I can't be sure

Not really a miss because I did shoot it. The problem is I didn't shoot it how I wanted or well enough.

White F-Type SVR. I saw it this Wednesday and looked for it. When I found it, it parked in one of the crappiest spots near The Cheesecake Factory by a dumpster with two cars way too close to it and no way to get a good front shot at all. I got shots and they turned out awful. Because of the angle of the sun, the polarizer didn't work and the lighting was already harsh and awful with bad backgrounds so basically, it was one of the worst spotting situations imaginable. I'd rather it just drive off then park and park somewhere awful lmao.
