A strong image that pells us a story without words.....

Very dramatic and emotive.....

Awesome textures, and love the sepia tones as it brings out the detail and textures so well.....

This is my favourite.... congrats on the soon to be 2nd place. I didn't actually vote... (soooo many photos to vote on... ugh) or maybe I could've helped this photo be 1st! Love the contrast, the detail. The hands almost seem like they're reaching out of the photograph! The hands seem a little centered in the photograph. I probably would have cropped out a bit at the bottom (which would probably make it a square photo) or changed the composition when shootings to put the hands reach the bottom of the frame. All in all... still my favourite and congrats on the ribbon.
