Getting Lucky

It's frustrating to go on a shoot with some really good ideas in mind, and come home to find that all your shots are duds. On the other end of the spectrum, It's great to go on a shoot feeling rather uninspired, take some obligatory exposures, and return to find a gem upon uploading from your card.

I can't claim credit for the way this photo turned out. The lighting happened all on its own, and it looks awesome.

Although the area behind the tree is rather overexposed, it's small enough not to be too distracting. The colors go together really nicely, and I love the way the sun sort of wraps around the trunk. But really, the only thing I can take credit for in this photo is the composition, which, quite frankly, is about two steps (or stops, if you appreciate nerdy photography humor) above mediocre.
