    Photography is an imprecise science. There are few, if any technically "perfect" photographs taken with a film camera.

    -What is the true speed of the film?
    -How accurate is the film developing?
    -How accurate is the meter?
    -How accurate is the shutter speed?
    -Did you measure the scene properly with your light meter?
    -Is the film moving in the film plane during the shutter traverse?
    -Do both shutter curtains move across the film plane at the same speed?
    -Does the lens hold it's focus exactly during the shock of stop down?
    -Does the lens hold it's focus exactly during the shock of the shutter releasing?
    -Is that lens of yours as perfect as you have been led to believe?
    -Is the footing under the tripod really solid?
    -Is the tripod large enough for the camera?
    -Does the tripod have enough mass to dampen any shutter or mirror shock?
    -Is your lens made by the right manufacturer?
    -Did Ansel recommend the camera you are using to anyone?
    -Do you really know what you are doing?
    -Is the lens barrel chrome or black?

    Scary stuff eh?

    I try myself not to get too hung up with the technicality s of photography any more, I worry more about what my pictures say if anything, even if they are not of the ultimate photo - technical quality.

    Factor number one in "technically flawed" film IME. A very high percentage of major problems can be traced to that.
