This was taken on a light-table at my work. Light tables were used primarily for working with film; aligning negatives and then exposing to create plates in a dark room. 2 light tables remain for creating folded proofs and assuring proper and easy registration as needed. Anyway, they can make for an interesting backlight.
I used one of our lintless wipes to diffuse the silhouette of my hand and shot with the iphone. I felt this to be a little boring so I inverted the image and printed a laser. Then I placed that onto the light table and repeated the process to have one hand inverted and one not.
ROtated and reduced to 1200 pixels (bicubic reduction in photoshop seemed to have the littlest effect on it). No sharpening. Save for web.

...as Mark Twain said "it is our petty vices that make life worth living" and images like this that make challenges worth voting on.

Team Spleen has had a reunion to vote on the art challenge and we would like to honor you with our highest award.

This is not at the kind of image that I enjoy.

HOWEVER, it fits the challenge topic perfectly. 8 from me.

Scary, I'm inside this dream already, eagerly waiting to fall off the bed to wake up..

I like the yin yang of this - very nicely done in minimal, too!
