A great photo that I saw awhile back that I desperately wanted to recreate and see what everyone on this site would think about it.

Basic editing here:
Levels,
Saturation,
Warm Tone,
Curves,
Shadow/Highlights
and Resized.

Nothing to it really. I really like the golden hue to it, regardless of what comments I may recieve. It made the hands look very dirty and hard working. I really do hope that at least some of you enjoy this photo. Kind of reminds me of the Art in Art icon.

Nice shot Lars, kinda looks like my hands the day before I got married, everyone was worried I could not get them clean in time, not sure why they all worried so much.

The justaposition of the hardened hands displayed in a soft manner is interesting, however, for me, I lose the story. Don't stop attempting these shots, because I am only one person.

It seems that everybody has dirty hands these days. No wonder we catch so many colds.

great tones, love the depth of field and the hand at the back out of focus, as well as the black 8
