In photoshop I adjusted curves and brightness/contrast. Also, I converted the original photo to grayscale. The idea of the photo just came to me one afternoon as I was looking through the DP challenges. I then had my brother cover his hands in a little dirt, and then grab the rope as if he was pulling it.

The photo lacks the overall impact. The idea is there but the execution is a little lacking. The size of the photo could be larger to utilize the 640px.

hands are dominate subject.

I like the idea, however I feel that a thicker diameter rope would have conveyed the "strength" concept better ...

IMHO a darker image would be more dramatic. I find the bright spots on the top a little distracting.

well done but IMO the image would have been more powerful with thicker rope - 7

A thicker rope might exude a bit more the sense of strength.
