Hey I saw this print on the post office wall!

The left side doesn't seem as in focus as the center is... I think more DOF is required, trying playing with your aperture.

Strange coloring. 5 sjgleah

Not sharp enough and the lighting is to head on. Side lighting would make the texture stand out more.

nice thumb

This is really neat texture... It seems that the focus on the thumbprint texture may be a little weak and I see some signs of jpeg compression in the bkack area of the photo... I think you need a little larger file size to remove some of this... = 7 - jmsetzler

good texture, nice black background, but the thumb looks slightly out of focus. did you get closer than your camera allows? mine often does that ... it beeps as if it has focused, but in reality it has failed ... -- gr8photos (4)

I like the idea -- I want to see a spaceship in orbit over there on the right...

Good representation of testure. I personally would prefer better focus and less flash glare. 5

good texture study! Your choice of title helped me relate to the picture.

Seems a little out of focus

I like the simple composition, but the skin tone is a little orangy to me. karmat

I'm wondering if you couldn't have gotten more detail out of this with less compression. the picture looks a bit flat to me and I guess that might be less of an issue if the file was larger/jpeg quality higher. tell me if I'm wrong.

It´s out of focus, and composition isn´t very interesting. The shadow on the left doesn´t look like a planets one, at least for me. But nice idea.

hahaa yes.

so who lives on planet thumb. thumbidians? good texture. you could have brought out the grooves a lot more had you lit it from the side.

I liked the title... a little unfocused
