The November "Silhouettes" contest judge, Lloyd Young, came to the Globe as a picture editor in 2006 to handle the daily Metro and Business sections. He also edits the weekly Globe staff Photos of the Week gallery that appears on Boston.com, and has filled in for fellow editor Lane Turner to update Lane's Big Shots blog.
Before coming to the Globe, Lloyd worked as an editor at newspapers in Florida and Illinois. He got his start in the business as a photojournalist in 1990 at a paper outside of Cleveland, Ohio. His work as a photographer and editor has been recognized by the National Press Photographers Association, Pictures of the Year International competition, and state newspaper organizations in Ohio and Illinois.
Lloyd has an undergraduate degree from the University of Illinois and a masters degree from Ohio University.
Outside of the Globe, he tries to keep up with his two young sons and trains for triathlons.
Note from Teresa: Given the results of the poll, we're going to discontinue the voting. We'll still post a Final 50 gallery, followed by the Top 10. Look for the winning shots early next week.
