Critique Club Review:

Focus is nice and sharp. Depth of field is OK. Though a shallower depth of field to soften the background, starting at the wrists, would have been an idea that may have served well. Holding the arms closer together to block out the lighter area that starts at the joining of the hands would work well too.

Photo is a little on the dark side for the subject. Seeds usually represent life, fertility, growth etc. Had you taken the hands and dirt to black and white, the seeds and seed pod would have really popped here.

Overall I've enjoyed this picture, and it makes a nice statement.

Too dark for me and the hands don't look like work hands.

Nice to see some good honest dirt. So many of these hand photos have a light dusting of pretend dirt.. ;-)

The fruit is crying to be lifted a bit off the rest of the shot.

Excellent. Love the deep hands and dirt and the lightness of the pods and seeds.
