I have several shots like this in my portfolio, I figured I would reshoot for this challenge. It took me until 45 minutes before the deadline to even snap the pic...LOL Oh well. Had a hard time deciding which version I wanted to enter, color, b/w, or this one. I hope this does well as it is one of my favorite subjects :)

Nice posing of the hands, good composition. But I think that the overall desaturation choice doesn't help, how about trying selective desaturation on the green background, with the hands and dirt in stronger color?

When I saw this, my first thought was "dirty hand and clean hand, brother and sister" Good use of shallow depth of field.

I adore this shot. Fantastic. It's a Bo Derrick shot, at least in my mind.

I would have either completely desatted this one or left the colors bolder.
