Tycertank's WoWscreenshotaday challenge has been awesome. I've really enjoyed it, and if it were to come about again, you could count me in for certain.
Every morning, and, in some cases, the evening before, I would take my shots, edit them and upload them onto my blog, tweeting them shortly afterwards. I would have planned the shot for a full day before hand, thinking about where I should go, what I should shoot, and what I'd need to craft or gather first, if anything.
But sometimes I'd take a great shot, only for something else to cross my path or pop into my mind immediately afterwards. For fun, I'd go and take that shot, on the off-chance that it turned out well, and in most cases it certainly did, and it would leave the original stuck in a little folder, never to be seen. Don't get me wrong, there are shots I've taken and submitted that were sub-par, but I stuck with them because I had no other ideas, and I don't regret them, because I still have no better ideas.
But some of the shots that I didn't submit were actually pretty good, but I didn't feel that they measured up to what came afterwards (or in one or two cases, before). And so I'm making this post, displaying the good shots I took that never made it to the competition.
