I was thinking spring all week, and gardening. I saw these bright, beautiful flowers and bought them hoping for an idea. I drew the pictures with markers (kinda hard drawing on my right hand). Went outside for natural light and rested my hands in a snow bank!

Thanks everyone for the kind comments and the support, it means alot.

A very unique photo cheegirl. I love the contrasting colors. Are they gerbera daisies? Surely you bought enough for a bouquet too. ;~)

I'm with geewhy, shots like this give us all a boost in imagining what COULD be possible instead of merely observing (even when done well...) Congrats on your blue!

Unique
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This obviously took much time to prepare and create. However, the flowers detract from the subject of the hands. Excellent sharpness and tonal range throughout.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/27/2006 06:20:58 PM
Adorable! I would pick this as the winning image. Creative idea and well executed. The title is brilliant. 10.

great colours and very different idea!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/25/2006 09:15:17 AM
I especially like the bright colours, and design created by the hands leaving minimal negative space in the composition. Very Creative!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/25/2006 08:19:54 AM
I like this photo. Very attractive and nice colours. I also like its sharpness. Well done I gave it an 8.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/24/2006 04:28:01 PM
Great idea, wild hands, colorful, and striking. Less straight-on composition would probably be more interesting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/24/2006 08:55:59 AM
This is so pretty and I just love the painted hands. I wonder if the person in real life has as green a thumb as in the picture!?? This is a very inventive and creative shot. Love it!!!!

I love the colors of this picture! How long did it take to get the marker to wash off the persons hands?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/23/2006 08:54:47 AM
Superb color-did you do that with markers?

A beautiful composition. But I have trouble with the top flower being partly cropped.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/22/2006 12:21:49 PM
Clever, and good overall.. I probably would have preferred a much darker background.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/22/2006 06:16:53 AM
