This is of my 19 month old grand daughter and her 93 year old great grandma. Her great grandma was reluctant to have her old hands as the subject and she had a hard time setting still for the shot. I am proud of them both and thank them for helping me out.

My wife wanted me to do something similar to this when my son was an infant. Now his hands are bigger than mine.

Dick, this is lovely :) I love the 'gap' in generations you present with this image..... I thought of a lot of alternate titles for this also :) Great work...

Congratulations!!! I knew this one was a good shot while it was being taken. How could you go wrong with two beautiful girls in the picture! This is a keeper, and now decorates my desktop at work. I'll order prints for my wall at home as well... I love this picture as well as its subjects, not to mention it was taken by my favorite photographer!

This was one of my favorites! (I had several) I just love this one and it reminded me of my own grandmother and myself many, many years ago! Congratulations!

Thank you all for the support and great comments on this picture.

I have wanted to enter a picture of these two for a long time now and I felt this challenge fit my subject material real well. If you have a good subject it's not so hard to make a good picture, as long as the luck holds out.

I knew it was in good company all week as the lowest that it got was around 7.298 with a high of 8.00 when it first started. It has been exciting.

Thanks again!

Dick

A classic pose and classic black and white treatment. This is an image that spans generations. Well done. 9 -danny

Tender and lovely. I find it very nice that the lines and textures of the hands are what give clues to the contrasts in age. Well duh, I guess (he said to himself!). Nice work. 10

Congratulation... Hang it on a wall.

Very touching. I wanted to do something like this, but my younger model (18 mos) didn't seem to want to cooperate!! :-) I think the black and white adds a nice effect, and probably helps to even out the skin tones, some.

Excellent capture and many contrasts in the image. Very good use of a border.

nice choice of black/white...great idea for contrast, nice composition, detail is good...one of my top picks...
  Photographer found comment helpful.

For a simple shot of two hands it wonderfully conveys a feeling (and a contrast). It is a moving shot, the title helps to convey the generations between them. The photo really causes me to think about all the stories these hands have to tell. Great job.
