Critique Club critique:

Composition/Content: are both done very well. just make sure the fingernails are spotless.
Lighting: A bit more light on the cross would make this better.
Background: the black shirt really makes the hands pop out at me. nicely done
Camera Work/Technical: I think using an apeture of F8 wouldve kept that one little hot spot on the finger from showing up. also if you had used more light you couldve increased the shutter speed. Digital Processing: Color tones look great and the image is clear.
My Opinion: I think this is a technically excellent photograph. I like the subject and the colors. I like the depth of the image. This image definately shows talent and technique. DPC likes bright well lit photos so keep this in mind if your going for the blue. congrats on getting in the top 10. pay attention to little minor details like lighting and the fingernails and you'll have the blue in no time!
If you have any questions feel free to contact me.

Haunting shot! More lighting on the cross and this would be stunning.

The technicals are great and clearly better than the original but for me you've lost the feel of authenticity the original hand.

beautiful remake, love the b&w, nice sharp focus, clean background, good lighting, composition and crop, I think the only thing that could have helped would be to light the right side a little more to even it out

great effort compared to the original, should make top 10 at least. would you please ask your model to clean the fingernails next time?
