Problem picture #9

What's wrong with this picture?


The top of the picture looks like it was torn away while the rest of the image looks lightly underexposed.

WHAT DO YOU THINK WENT WRONG?

The photographer's finger went wrong. It blocked the lens and reflected the light from the flash. (The bright portion at the top of the image is a finger. It is grossly overexposed because it was too close to the flash -- less than an inch away.)

This is a common problem with point-and-shoot viewfinder cameras where the viewing lens and the picture-taking lens are two separate lenses. The photographer does not see the actual image that the picture-taking lens "sees" and is unaware that his or her finger is in the way.
