I love the way the light creates the perspective off to the upper left of the frame- its almost as if the viewer is staring off the ege of the frame searching for ...god?

Wow, you came close to having THREE ribbons displayed on the Home page for three different challenges (the Insects challenge just dropped off the page)! Good job, great work, you are on a ROLL!! Keep going. :)

Great vivid shot. Like I said earlier in my comments. This would make a great father's day greeting card.

I really like this photo and the message that goes along with it, The only change that I would have made is to crop the arms a little bit more, but tht is just my opionion.

Great shot. Love the title, and b/w. I think even more black space would compliment this better.

I really like this. The contrasts are great. Nice job.

Great picture representing life. The b/w gives the image a great impact and makes it pop out of the shot. The dark background also helps. The focus is really good. You can see almost every pore of the skin.
This would make for a great Father's Day greeting card or postcard.

Greetings :) This is a particuarly strong photo in my opinion. I think your interpretation of this challenge is a very emotive one. These two hands in the darkness also seem to represent a strong bond between the parent and child... maybe also a 'comforting' mood. Who is giving the comfort? The child or the adult? :) This is also a great example of how creative lighting can create emotion in a photo. This is my favorite photo in this challenge... great work :) = 10

This is awesome! Great take on what "life" is, and putting in black and white was an excellent choice. The lighting is great and contrasts nicely with the stark black background. One of the week's best, definately. 10
