Found a good sized Appollo Landing photo on the internet and photographed my thumb with it in front of the computer screen. Used a desk lamp for appropriate directional lighting on my hand. Crop, rotate, levels, usm, resize, spot burning and dodging on my hand to better match the lighting conditions.

So crazy and possibly true. Great job on capturing the idea.

A deeper dof was needed here starting with the thumb's nail. yet, it remains impressive and very funny. 7

using such a well-known shot with this seems kind of uninspired.

I think a bit more light on the camera side of the hand would help this look like it had a bit more depth. The almost-sihouette makes it look kinda flat.

Some weird edting going on around the thumb. Good execution of the idea. The hand might use some more light from the side. 7.

The best of the moonwalk conspiracy pics for sure, the hand makes it!

For me, this is one of the winners.
Witty and wicked! :-)

Hehe
I think it's always funny in the moon landing pictures when the light is only coming from one way yet the American flag is ALWAYS lit up, even if it is in the shadows...

Gets the point across, but doesn't strike me as terribly original. I'd have liked to see something like this with the directors 'cut' thing that I don't know the name for. On the other hand, no pun intended, I do like the consistant lighting between the photo and your hand so the detail is there.

Good match of the lighting on the two separate surfaces....very humourous image. Well done.
