This is clever and I like your imaginative approach. Good perspective.

Don't be hard on non-native speakers!

Congrats on your top 20. I like more the

post-processed version.
There is something in the message I can't really say I like it. I think I don't get what the chain is doing there. No offence!
I didn't vote but I would have marked it a 7 or 8.

Felicitari pentru realizare si la mai mare. Asteptam un ribbon romanesc.

Very creative and quite a different twist. Congratulations on your top 20 finish.

the backround though interesting when looked at close up, is dull in the composition as a whole, and leaves too much of the frame a vague grey blah. Had you used a stromg single point light to throw a shadow that would have recreated the lovely forms of chain links and curved fingers, the backround would have had the complexity to bump it up a few more notches.

I think that harsher angled light wouldve worked better here

I would have tried a less angled perspective and with the majority of the picture dominated by gray, I would have considered B&W with bumped contrast. Perhaps that would have gotten it to the Top 10, but who knows, right?

Congrats on top 20. This was different and I appreciate the originality.

I like this photo, though I only gave it a 5. I think I scored it average because I thought the background would have benefited from being sharper. I would have liked the background to have been darker, as in your post-processed version, which, had that been entered into a member's challenge, I likely would have rated higher. I'd like to have seen the hands pop out more, and maybe the red in them taken down slightly with curves.

But I think it's a good picture, and the intepretation is unique. I haven't voted often (I'm new), so I think I'll take more into consideration in future. Thanks!

Good idea, okay photo.

Great picture. The only thing that I think would have made this picture better would have been to use some hands that looked a bit rougher ie. dirty finger nails, dirty hands. That would of made it more realistic. Good job great idea.

Interesting, the negative space and the wide angle lense add alot of impact. I like it.

Great texture and light. The wood grain plays well off the hands and the hint of rust on the chains
