I really like the colors and the perspective in this image. The detail including the cracks in the skin make it very interesting. I wasn't here to vote, but I would have scored this quite high. Congrats on the ribbon. Beautiful photograph.

They really look like a workers hands!

This is a strong image that I feel would have been even more powerful with a more identifiable obejct in the hands.

What great detail and lighting on this! Reminds me of my own work. My fingers used to look like that when I worked as a field technician fixing copiers. I used lots of stuff that was hard on my hands, and couldn't do any detailed work if I wore gloves. When I eventually transitioned to doing network integration, the nasty hands went away (and my wife was happier).

My only nitpick is a bit of high ISO noise in the lower part of the frame. Not sure you could fix that in basic without killing some of the other details, however.
