A ceramic hand, washed with water, place on a white sheet, lit with a tungsten bulb.

Was thinking of more provocative titles like "Apartheid" or "You still discreminate" but chickened out...

This is an attractive shot, with the flower setting off the black hand. One caveat (not directly related to the picture): The use of rainforest wood for decorations and construction is one of the contributors to the loss of the forests.

Nice how the color brakes the black and white in a very succesful way. I like the composition with the space above and the positioning of the hand & flower.

Mostly well exposed, some of the highlights are overexposed. The yellow and green adds a dynamic touch. I'm giving this a good score,7. Beautiful sculpture.
These are personal reflections on this image: I would like it cropped at the wrist so the hand fills the frame. I'm wondering how it would have looked with the weed repeating the movement of the fingers by being turned 90 degrees.

This is pretty cute! I wish the wrist were further from the edge, though.

Strange sculpture. Not sure the water drops work here. Good use of the white negative space.

try the hand at a bit more diagonal. otherwise has a static feel as is.

A Bland Photo - Otherwise well shot. Feel there is too much space (unused or negative) in the pic.
