In Inarajan, Guam, is a native Chamoran who is an AMAZING basket weaver. She does everything from scratch, including pulling & prepping the leaves from the pandanus tree. Her work is so intricate and beautiful, and I was taken by her spirit.

Beautifully done. IMHO, I would have liked to see it cropped even tighter to focus more on the hands a palm. BOL

I'm not sure what it is about a great photo of working hands that I always have to give a 10. Maybe it's that it fits the challenge perfect, and it shows something valuable at the same time. Excellent work. From the detail to the dof to the composition, everything about this images is perfect in my eyes.

Wonderful detailing. I like the veins. That blurred area at the top doesn't add anything. I think I'd crop it just agove the blurred part of her right hand and make it more square. Great detail and I love the lighting. 7
