Going through previous years photo shoots and picking the one standout portrait is generally a process of editing, culling, removing, which when so many are themselves standout images within their own collection, makes the process one of ambivalence, indecision and frustration.

The image below has been one of my favorites ever since I got home and processed the collection of images from that photo shoot. What words and feelings come up for you when you view this image?
