I knew this would get hit hard for DNMC. But it's a good photo and needed to be shown.

Thank you all for your comments and a special thank you to those of you that saw the humor in it and voted on it's photographic merit.

What a great title for this! It is a beautiful shot. The lighting is wonderful. I love how he is looking up into the dark empty corner. It's like you caught that moment of exasperation that we all get once in a while. You really are making leaps and bounds with your photography and lighting skills!

Great portrait, but in spite of the title, I can't see how it fits the topic.

Funny image. I find people that can't find their glasses usually have them on top of their heads.

Only because i have tried this before... Though your title ties this into the challenge, the picture doesn't work. However, it is a very nice portrait and layout. Im giving you a 2 because you had a good shot that you wanted to use and no challenges to put it in. (i've done the same thing.)

Excellent shot/lighting! How bad are you getting hit w/ DNMC comments though?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Interesting idea, nice photo, but there probably should be glasses in the shot... maybe perched, forgotten, on his head?

Sorry, DNMC.

Really an excellent picture, but the title is the only thing to do with glasses. The subject photographed should be proud of this picture.

Technically I think that this is a good shot , but didn't see the glasses , my understanding was that the glasses should have been an integral part of the shot (sorry)

DNMC as I'm sure you expected.

Alright, I'm looking. And looking.
Still looking.

Nope, I simply am not seeing any glasses or eyewear here. Even if I give you a benefit of the doubt for contact lenses, I'm just not convinced enough.

I can't really say why you'd chose to go this route, could be any number of reasons, but because of the complete lack of eyewear, this is one of those technically sound photographs that is a very nice portraiture to boot that earns a very unapologetic 1 from me.

I think I know what you are saying here but I can't help thinking that it DNMC, sorry

Lovely shot, but the challenge requires glasses in the photo... ;(

Hmm... the only entry without a pair of glasses in! Nice shot though with great lighting.

DNMC. This is the first time I've outright said it...but this doesn't meet the challenge unfortunately. The photograph itself is actually quite nice and had it been a portrait challenge of sorts it would've gotten anywhere from an 8 to a 10. Hope to see more of your photos like this in future challenges.
