Thanks Runner, The hardest part was being my own subject. Not being behind the camera made it tough to get the lighting I wanted. I actually rested my arm and head on a big white piece of paper to get some reflected light.

I agree with the rest of the folks.....this is a great image, and I'm sure, difficult to accomplish. You did a beautiful job, Mike!

Thanks for the input guys. I always appreciate it. I have to admit I was a little hesitant shooting a symbolic image as I respect all people’s belief. This was more of a personal shot inspired by the WA. I think prayer is one of the largest forms of communication and has been around from the beginning. I had a hard time with the title. I kept leaning towards something that was in the form of asking, which seems to be why we usually prey. I thought "Thank You" would be nice.

Incredible shot. Great portrail of emotion. I can't imagine how you accomplished this. Forgive my ignorance, I'm a lighting newb. Is it done with only one light & a reflector (the white piece of paper you mentioned)? Or is it two? I agree with ironabike, finalist for sure.

So far, everyone has told you how great this shot is. I'm here to tell you how to make it better.

1. You should have shaved your head
2. Somewhere in the photo there should have been a pink flamingo

If you follow these steps and re-shoot, the image will be breathtaking.



Now that I've gotten the silly humor out of my system, great shot Mike As always.

Thanks for the comments and support guys. It is always very much appreciated. I would hate to be the one to choose the finalists. Everyone does such fine work here at Fred's. It's always allot of fun.
