    Worst archery stock photo competition..

    A little while ago, I wondered if stock photography was worth being involved with, so I went to have a look at what was offered in terms of archery stock photography.

    I found some really really bad images.
    It's patently obvious that there are stock photographers out there with no idea, taking pictures of models with no idea.

    I mean, we've all seen the backwards strung recurves on ebay and various photos online. They are the classic mistake.

    This is the best combination that I've seen so far, but I'm hoping for better.

    I think Andy!'s still wins but the fact they had to bind the limbs onto the riser should have been a clue here?

    Noted.
    I'm still impressed that arrow rests apparently work just fine upside down...

    I've been wondering what to do with all those lost bow stands at the club. Now I know what to do with them

    1st one she could put her finger between the riser & sight & would have a finger sling sort of . For all we know the stab might be a new secret design like what Rick K used 1 time to see who would copy him
    At least she got the chest guard on the correct side Also is her draw ok for WA?

    The higher scores you shoot, the harder it is to shoot them.
    If you shoot the wrong spot, it will probably be an X.

    Hard to beat the original post, but here are a couple from a quick search.

    Ok, this one gets the benefit of the doubt as she may not be a full draw

    While not a stock image, this will not end well!
