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!!!

Yaaay Lloyd!

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.
