Image was taken and imagined in the shower. RAW format image of my own hand using -- yes ... a flash!

Wow... Your colors are really off in this shot. I' don't know how to fix this one. Maybe playing around with levels. You used the on camera flash to didin't ya. I think this could be much improved if you didn't use the flash and instead brought in other light sources. Move them around and experiment till you have good results...

a very neat trick, though easily enough to accomplish. 6

Neat idea. The fingers seem a bit too red, but I like the concept. Well done.

I Like the illusion but the title is like a short story.

Not much of an illusion IMHO...

Man, I knew there was a fifth in the fantastic four!!!

I like the idea, my only concern is the low lighting used, which has resulted in a rather grainy image.
I think a little neat image would help with this.

Not a very interesting illusion, but I like the water droplets

Aquaman is probably a movie hero, don't follow those things much. The idea is rather good but somehow not convincing...looking at the image sideways however looks totally different..

i really like the water droplets coming off the fingers but the hand looks grainy and off color

Hmm Ok. Nice fast shutter stop motion. Illusion, not really. Does not seem to tell as much of a story as your title.

You're "clear blooded" :) This is a good one :) How did you do this coming from only four fingers? Where's Tommy Thumb? LOL

Nice execution of an illusion. i like the water droplets. I'm just not all that crazy about the coloring in this photo. The skin color on the hand appears too red and clashes with the bluish background. Perhaps this would be nice in a desaturated or B&W photo.

Neat, but the OOF/graininess is a bit distracting. Great job on the water droplets though.

This is a neat illusion, though I did find the presence of the hand to be a bit distracting. I'd like there to be less hand, more water. Perhaps just fingertips and then the water sprays.

better focus would make this a better image. the bubble out of the finger action is pretty cool tho

Nice effect, good detail, I like the color.

Boy, your really grasping at straws with this title....but its funny and made me laugh.

i noticed the no thumb thing... i hope its just a crop. Interesting idea.

Silly title!
I like the idea of the stop-action water dripping. Great job!
