great contrast between the strong hands and the flimsy wall. Well done!

This one should have wound up in the winners circle. It's powerful and gritty and frankly I don't understand why so many of those making comments didn't get it. Keep up the great work!

This one made me stop to try and determine what the message is. I'm not really sure what's going on here, but I like it.

It is a shame that the top of the fingers has been cropped off. The noise through the background unfortuntely annoys me here as well. I like the idea both with the shot and the post processing though...

I don't quite get it.

I like the tones in this photo, but I think theres a bit too much grain. It looks like its been sharpened a bit too much.

I couldn't make my mind up about this image.IMO the color is a little off putting and it may not be so, but it looks like it has a lot of noise.

I'm a little put off by the shiny oil or whatever it was you coated the hands and arms with. Combined with the shadow, it almost looks like there is a chunk out of the right hand thumb. Otherwise very nice entry.

I like this photo. What is that in the middle?

A lil overprocessed for my taste.

Crop too close - very nice. But how is it immoveable?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I like it. The graininess of the image works well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nice abstract. Maybe an additional light source from between the arms to reduce the very dark shadow might have another feel?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

very moving

Although this is a nice photo I'm not sure where the immovable object is or how a prayer fits the subject matter. background has a lot of noise as well.

nice symmetry, good idea, like the originality of it

I don't see the connotation to Immovable....? Interesting effect.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I'm not sure I fully understand this shot. Is it two hands trying to touch through the immovable barrier?
The little things that bother me in the pic is the desaturation - it doesn't seem consistent - there are little patches of colour on the arm that don't match. And I don't really like the way the fingertips have been cropped off, it loses the shape of the praying hands.
I think with a little more work it could be a powerful image though.

nice concept just that i would keep the two hands at same level, I am seeing right one little up then left one, over all nice, 8

I wish the top of the fingers wasn't cut off but interesting processing and idea.

"Take a photo of someone trying to move an immovable object." Looked at this image a few times before voting. Don't see how it meets challenge or what your thoughts could have been regarding the object.

The treatment is interesting. Not a fan of the resulting noise from the oversharpening.

Very good...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/10/2008 01:40:11 PM
sorry, this meets the challenge, but the high contrast high noise look doesn't work for me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This is a great image but I cannot tell that there is anything immovable. That really dark spot on the right hand is driving me crazy. It looks like the man has a hole in his hand.

Lovely lighting on the hands adds a wonderful weathered look to the photo

I like the original concept and the composition with the two hands. Unfortunately there is for me a number of technical issues: the shot is very noisy and the right hand is cut at the top. So i gives me the feeling of a good idea but a disappointing execution.

I like this 2 to me it telling me that When u put your hands together and pray for god that its immovable to move unless gods says so ! Like noone can come between u and god! ITS IMMOVAbLE!

This image can be read in so many ways: I'm seeing a black/ white racial divide with the ugliness reinforced with the harsh lighting. Maybe the thin prayer is a comment on the lack of understanding between the two?

cropped a bit too tight for me with the tips of fingers being chopped

clever idea!

The pp is the strength in this image. When I look at it, I do not really see Immovable. Yet, it has a certain appeal to it.

Wow! How did you think of that? Powerful depiction of the topic. The grains add to the strength of the image.
