Sometimes It's Better to be Lucky Than Good

Sometimes you get a shot that would have been very difficult to execute intentionally. In this image, I was following the model through the water-air interface to capture a post-dive expression of satisfaction, and grabbed this frame just before she surfaced.

Of course, being "lucky" has a whole string of caveats -- being in the right place at the right time with the right equipment aimed for the right composition and set for the right exposure and the right focus. This is why experienced photographers are "lucky" more often than the laws of large numbers and chance would dictate.
