What a wonderful contrast between the flaky, old, dried look to the meaty older hand, and the smooth, almost transparent waxy look to the baby hand. (apologies if it is your hand, no offense!)

I have never seen such a telling contrast - usually it is a mother's lovely smooth hand, and the baby's whole hand wrapped round one finger - this jolts me somehow - I feel my age more when I see this - it is so like my hand!

I like this idea and execution. My only criticism would be that the light is just a bit harsh. It would be great if it had a softer feel to it.

i like the differentce in the textures of both hands, showing the age difference not only through size

Nice composition but the lighting is far too hard for such a soft image.

beautiful textures; I love how you captured the roughness of the skin and the softness of the skin, its a beautiful contrast well captured :)

Very nice idea. I only wish the lighting wasnt so harsh. My eye wants the shadows to be much softer than they are.
