This is my own hand, lighted by two gridded strip softboxes on both sides from a close distance, so the rest of me remained dark.

Thank you very much for the votes and comments! Glad it struck a chord

Ooooh... so dramatic and intense! A beautiful piece of art!

I would love to be able to just copy this and try the same thing. I'm starting to entry photos into juried shows at a gallery. And I think this is just smashing (hmmm -- sounding a tad English, but smashing is just the right adjective!)

I keep thinking how I could change it up a bit, but it still seems like it would be copying it. I thought about an old, wrinkled woman's hand coming out of the upper right and a child's hand out of the lower left, but I'm not old or wrinkled enough, and I don't have little kids anymore. :)

Anyway, what a great idea and spectacularly executed!

I was one of your 9s. In retrospect I should have given it a 10.

It's awesome, Lev!

Congratulations Lev! This was the clear blue to me. Absolutely compelling, and one of those images that looks simple but it very hard to pull off well
