One of my favorite portraits is of “Lucky” Lloyd. I had originally intended to enter it in an Underexposed challenge. Unfortunately I happened to shoot it three hours BEFORE the challenge was announced. It is frustrating but happens to everyone – to shoot the perfect picture for a challenge we have no way of knowing is about to be announced. Fortunately, I entered the portrait in a contest over at Flickr. And tied for third place!!!
I worked on this image for some time, wasn’t happy with it, put it aside, and dusted it off tonight to enter it in their next contest. I hope you like it.
