Awesome. Wish the tips of the fingers were as focused as the other parts are.

Hope this is a primate, beause the hair on the fingers would cause one to be Catagelophobic. Nice picture.

I love this image. A monkey I would assume? There is an amount of visible grain but I don't mind. The power of this image runs through my screen. Love it! 7

Hairy Ape fingers! That's something you don't see everyday. I like it.

Please tell me that this hand belongs to an ape of some kind. If this is a human's hand, I think I'll be getting a phobia of my own. Is there such a thing as furryfingerphobia?

Very nicely done! This is pretty darn freaky. Especially after seeing KingKong.

Wow! I think this would have done much better in the Shallow DOF challenge. Cool picture! Good luck!

Just not spooky enough...
12/22/2005 12:15:25 AM
I like the focus on the hair. I don't know what a bogeyman is, but suspect this could be one. Creepy.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nice idea and execution, I think a little more DOF would be better. We love gorilla's, don't we?

OH MY GAWD! I now have bogyphobia!

Creative. I almost used this fear myself, but in a completely different way! BTW< ya need to shave your fingers... LOL 8

I don't know about the bogeyman but I have suddenly developed an intense fear of hairy knuckles!
Great job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

the shallow DOF dont seem well suited to my taste. Would have prefer more of the finger (esp the nails) in focus. a creepy photo nonetheless. good work. 8
