Such terrific texture in her paper skinned hands, congrats on your 5th place finish!

This is one of the pictures that do not need any text to be understood. I love the depth (not physical depth but historical) of this shot.

Maybe 2 people will get DQed, thus fulfilling my prophecy...

Great shot. Deserves higher.

Beautiful work! You can in fact see the many stories in the character of her hands. Congratulations on 5th place!

Powerful image, not sure how it fits with the song title though.

nice contrast!

I'm not sure about the connection to the title, but this is one of the most amazing hands' photos I've ever seen.

Not quite sure if I get the link to the title (I have a fair idea), but either way it's a great shot of hands. Excellent focus, DOF - sharp as a tack on the important bits. And the tones are well exposed too - nice range from light to dark. Well done.

great job!
01/10/2007 05:02:20 AM
