Used one of my previously taken images of the moon as a backdrop on my laptop and I then held up my hand in front to simulate touching the moon. Clicking the shutter while looking through the viewfinder was a little tricky! :-) Took a bunch of pictures before I had one I was happy with.

I like the idea but it looks noisy or maybe a little out of focus but I am not sure how you would have gotten both in focus in one photo... great idea though

Good idea and something different. Would have liked more space at the top of the photo, as you have cut part of the moon. That part of the moon is in shadow, but would have liked the extra room to balance the shot

Nice idea, but I think theres a bit too much grain in the hand.

Neat idea here. But the hand doesn't really look like it is trying to move the moon. Contact with the moon and a different angle on the hand could help here.

I like this. Try cleaning up the camera noise on the skin and you've got a great image.

Great composition, balance and colour. I would have like a sharper image though.

Picture of the moon printed out next to your hand....? Cool idea.

Clever angle. Not altogether convincing though - could've executed it a little better.

the graininess and red colouring on the hand kind of doesn't pull this effect off.

Nice use of perspective to achieve this result. A little noisy and soft. I would also try to match the exposure on the hand to make them appear closer.

not bad, but everything's a bit fuzzy

Great shot. Although the moon looks a bit jagged and unclear.

I love the idea and it's set up perfect, just a bit blurry though!

Interesting perspective but the camera shake and noise are a little too obvious
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Simple but still a cool effect, nice job

Great idea, wish it were more in focus, 5.

very dark and grainy

A bit soft but love the concept.

Focus seems off here, as I do not see a solid focus point. Idea is not bad, but could have been executed better.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Interesting composition. The image is a bit noisy, esp. on the hand.. owing to the ISO settings I guess. Not the best shot technically for me.
