Great shots are not just about filters, angles, and posing. Sometimes the only thing separating a picture from a regular photo to a master piece is the timing. The problem is that timing is usually hard to predict and you are left to the luck of capturing the right things at the right moment. Here are a few photos that do exactly that.
It's Raining Beer
That's what happens when a fight is getting out of control. The player gets it!
Looks like the crane caught something in it's hook!
Great timing for looking up and having the camera on ready! You can't plan this.
Blowing off Steam
That's what happens when statues come to life. They blend beautifully with the surroundings.
Looks like this goalkeeper is a bit disoriented. Hope someone let him know before the ball got to him.
This is just the emoji missing when I try to express a combination of unpleasant feelings. He is capturing it perfectly.
Or in this case, zombie bridesmaid! At least the bride looks happy.
Seems like this photographer selected a different method of generating an expression in this wedding shoot. Hopefully it is that and not something horrible happening to him!
Not sure where this flame is coming from, but this candle has nothing to do with it.
Just when he thought he can now relex with his ice cold water.
This bird makes the perfect imitation of a washing machine.
All About Balance
Looks like this chair was big enough to support this child, or maybe not.
When the day is sunny and the roads are icy.
Just missed by a little. And the guy behind him never had a chance anyways!
I bet the splash was quite impressive.
This might be the last thing you want to find behind your back after you have taken a picture.
I always thought it was Zeus who controlled the lightnings...
Fighting a Skeleton
This fighter has no idea how good he was actually aiming with this kick. Got him right in the jaw!
While No One is Watcing
This acrobat is nailing the flat horizontal flying trick. It is a shame no one is seeing it.
I guess that is what is like when the items in the house get a life of their own.
While I was Posing
This young guy doesn't know that while he is giving his best pose, the lady behind him is about to find out how cold the water is.
When was the last time your face lit up with such happiness and excitment?
The Calm Before the Storm
I bet the next picture is of this guy screaming in pain and shock!
Maybe this fish still thinks it is at sea, not yet aware of its already sealed destiny.
When you become one with the fish you caught!
Surprised by Size
I bet this dog was expecting the ball to be a tiny bit smaller.
The Flying Mop
I love it when cleaning supplies come to life!
Left The Best Behind
This leaping frog better remember not to leave its legs behind!
It Wasn't Me!
Maybe if I look the other way, no one will notice I'm stealing from this woman. It's working!
Caught In The Middle
Quite Impressive for a mouse to be balanced this way. Maybe he should be the next Ninja Worrier!
A Crack In The Sky
This plane is a true trail blazer!
There are simple misses and there are truly unfortunate ones. How do you think the person in the stripes will clasify this one?
Yin And Yang
One two people truly complete each other.
What is different about this man's face? Let me take a closer look.

Nothing marks a road better than a rainbow. The destination looks pretty promising.

It has long been known that things are lighter in water, even planes!
Watch Your Step! You might like the thing you crash!
Love Is Everywhere
Nothing says true love better than two coffee cups.
Gulliver And The Frog
A new adventure from the makers of the original Gulliver. This time in the "Frogs Island".
Blending with nature is the goal, sometimes literally achieved.
Who needs to buy a surfboard when your friend is available for free?
This is definitely not one of the places you want your head to get stuck in.
Off With Her Head!
Classic Alice in Wonderland syndrome taken too literally.
Legs or Arms
You know that you are in the presence of a true artist when you can't tell arms from legs.
I wouldn't worry about this girl in stressful situations. I bet she stays calm.
When you are spending time at the sea, you are bound to start feeling quite fishy yourself.
When you want to prove to the world that your supposed to be "enemies" are really your squad.
Lack of Sleep
That is why it is always recommended to get some sleep before an important competition. You don't want to fall asleep mid-air.
These Pictures Will Make You Feel Better About Your Life
We might not like to admit it, but the saying is right, "Misery loves company". Even if we try to think of ourselves as the nicest, most generous people in the world, we still feel better when other people are doing worse. So in the spirit of embracing this fact, here are a few images that will bring a smile to your face in those less happy days.
Late to the Pizza Party
Sometimes you just need to know when is the best time to go home. When you are too tired to even hold a box of pizza, maybe it's time you call it a night.
Trying to Help
This kid was just trying to do the right thing, but he probably regretted it the next second. Sometimes life can be so unfair.
This is embarrassing. This girl was so focused on applying her makeup, she neglected to check whether someone was in that car. The driver found the best way to let her know.
If you are familiar with the Rush Hour game where the goal is to free the red car, this is the hardest level you probably have ever seen.
Note to self: don't leave your duck in the car in a hot summer day. You might come back to a puddle instead.
In the race between water and humans, water win. It might sound like a known fact, but this guy had to learn it the hard way.
What Are You Doing Here?
Looks like someone has taken possession over this couple's bedroom. He appears so surprised, as if the couple should be the one to apologize for the invasion.
Consider a Belt
This swat team was so focused on the mission, they forgot to check what they have connected the cables too. Just in case, I recommend the guy use a belt next time.
Watch Your Step
It has been said that nothing hurts more than stepping on a piece of Lego. I guess that people who say that do not have screws sticking out of their floor.
Everything was perfect. Great weather, nice water temperature, and amazing day at the beach. The only thing to make it perfect was this ice cream cone. Looks like the bird felt the same.
When the temperature drops, make sure not to park under a water stream. Otherwise, your car could become part of a frozen waterfall statue.
Fun at The DMV
Someone at the DMV office probably tried to spice up his day when he registered this license plate. Not sure the girl who got it was as amused.
Updating your computers is never fun. You never know what might stop working and the time it is taking is never expected. Especially when the system does not know the meaning of percentage.
Speaking about over-drying. Seems like there are more than one way to make sure the laundry is fully dry.
When you choose a window seat, you usually expect to see a bit more than the plane's inner wall.
Just when you thought you found the solution to all of your life's problems, it slips between your fingers.
The best way to complement your lunch sandwich is with a delicious bottled juice. And if it comes for free, even better.

Didn't See That Coming
This couple thought they already faced the hard part in their relationship. I bet they didn't see that coming.
Everything was perfect. The perfect wedding in the perfect setting. Until the couple realized that it is slightly harder to get the ring back when it falls to a pond.
The one thing that can make a collision worse is having buckets of paint in the car when it happens.
When you prepare dinner in your rice cooker, this is the last thing you want to find inside. I guess the cat found the heat comforting.
This looks quite dangerous. It is important to remember that the MRI scans are magnetic and it is probably not the best idea to have a huge metal crate right next to it. Hopefully the patient has already left.
We all know how to get a farmer's tan, but if you opt for this unique zebra look, all you have to do is to wear ripped jeans and wait in the sun.
It's a Match
You know this awkward moment when you hand out your passport and try to match the experession in your picture so that the officer knows it is you? In her case, if he can't really tell, it is probably a compliment.
Things to remember before jumping from a plane: check that your parachute is functioning and that you have nothing in your pocket. You don't want to be like this guy who lost his keys on the way down.
Stuck and Wet
It is never a good time to be locked in. But it is especially less convinient when you are naked, wet in the shower and you need to get the maintenance guy to get you out.
Ever wondered what will happen if you press a stress ball too hard? Fortunately you don't have to wonder anymore. This guy has the answer.
Remember, you don't want to leave your tool box open in the car while driving. And more importantly, the guy behind you definitely doesn't want you to do that.
Food on Fire
It is on thing to burn the food. It is a totally different thing to burn the entire house along with it.
Always Wear a Hat
One thing that can be sure about this guy is that he knows the importance of wearing a hat in the summer.

This little kid found the best hiding place in the entire store. Try to find him yourself, since his dad definitely can't.
Please Watch the Closing Doors
That is why they always say "please watch the closing doors" before and after boarding the train. You might leave something behind when in a rush.
World of Skittles
This looked like a start of a really good dream, a world full of skittles. It is less dreamy when it is all spread on the floor and has to be cleaned up.
The Magic of Google Maps
Google Maps capture all kind of moments, but this is especially precious. Talking about the perfect timing for a picture.
Sometimes it is all about luck. If this rock was rolling slightly more to the left, the house will only be a memory.
When you expect to see kids at your door for "Trick or Treat" it must be terrifing to find a moose instead. Especially when he is taking the treat without asking.
We can probably all agree that there are scarier rides than the ferris wheel. Except for this specific ferris wheel which ended up being a terrible experience.
Pill Side Effect
Before closing your laptop, always check nothing is on the keyboard. You might end up with a huge damage like this guy did. If you were worried, the pill is doing well.
Bad Parking Spot
When looking for a parking space, you try to avoid fruits from falling on it, birds from doing their business on it, and other cars from hitting it. But how do you avoid from flying eggs to hit it?
Make sure you choose your friends wisely. Don't keep the friends that leave you buried in the sand, while being used as the birds toilet.
Guess what won't make it to its destination? The owner is probably all excited for his vacation, not knowing he is in for a surprise when landing.

If you are looking for a good location for filming a horror movie, this might be it. The special effect for the bloody water is already there. Now you only need the actors, and action!
There is a Lake!
Do you know the Office episode when they drive into the lake while listening to the GPS? Looks like things like that do not only happen on TV.
That's what happens when you get a sun burn with a shaved head. You come back with a dent just in the middle of your head.
It's a Massacre
It looks like a complete massacre. Thankfully, on a second look, you realize it is only laundry going completely wrong.
Customer Take Over
When the customer thinks he is always right, he might also think he knows it all. Even better than the employee. Not sure that was what they meant by a self-checkout.
It is always a good idea to hold on to the handrails. But sometimes it is completely necessary to stay alive.
When you are clinking glasses with someone, make sure the bottom of the glass can endure it. Otherwise, you will end up in wet pants like this guy.
Does It Belong to Anyone?
The last thing you expect to find when hearing a loud noise from outside your house is probably a plane engine. What happened to the rest of it?
What do you do when the park gate closes before you are done passing? I guess the only solution is to pay twice.
This is not a surprise you want to find in your car before taking off to work. Maybe next time you will remember to keep the car's doors closed before getting inside the house.
Not Suitable for Adults
Some things should only be used by children. You keep to your own things and let the kids enjoy theirs.
While You Were Gone
Coming back home from work is always a happy occasion. Unless it looks like your home went under a major sandstorm while you were gone.

Sometimes you don't need many words to express how you feel. This short message is worth a thousand words.
Timing Is Everything.
