This is by far the best I've seen in this challenge to date, but it seems to me to be missing something. I can't put my finger on it. It's like I'm reading a story but an important chapter has been torn out. You know it's important, but you don't know what it is...

There is a mysterious aurua around the light bulb.

Nice composition - although I think your prcessing, certainly in terms of the darkening of the background, could use more work - it's really quite visible, and it looks like a mistake rather than deliberate. Likewise there seems t be a lighter area around the lightbulb that smacks of selection inaccuracies. Not badly lit at all - some real shape here.

the hand balances the photo but is such a balance necessary? I honestly think I'd like it either way :-) cool shot 9

Like the lighting on the hand... the bulb looks a little overexposed. Good composition.

great concept. Perhaps a bit too dramatic. Is that God's hand? Is God all out of Ideas? the lighting on the build looks a touch dodged in an antique sort of way- it adds a nice reverberation to the shot.
