shot my arm against a white background - used PS to resize the image to lifesize and create 3 overlapping crops - desaturated the 3 new images to 0%, 33% and 66%, printed and taped them up on a black background - cut a hole in my background and in a clean sheet of paper - arranged my hand through the holes and shot about 40 pics before i hid the hole and liked the shadows - thanks to all who like my shot, and a big fat BLEAGH to everyone else!

Cool photo - makes me think of Escher's work. I like the seamlessness where the hand peeks out and how it still looks like it's on the same plane as the other arm pieces. Great execution. shedonist 9

Cute, but the tapes ruin an otherwise interesting image. 6 paganini

Bumping this up to 8... It's just too cleverly done.
10/30/2002 04:08:00 PM
Very creative, I am sure that you will place in the top two. Can't decide between this one and the chess board, both excellent illusions and well shot.

nice effect. I like the changing color tones as well. karmat

Best of show... - setzler

weird but cool
10/30/2002 01:17:00 PM
Awesome! This has got to be in the top ten at least! 9/10
10/30/2002 12:54:00 PM
I think this is well done, immaginative and different. To me, this counts as an illusion. 8
10/30/2002 12:51:00 PM
Very nice. Looks like you had some printer problems on the lower part... Great idea. 9 waltoml.
10/30/2002 11:13:00 AM
Very clever! Good technically too.
10/30/2002 01:08:00 AM
neat trick!
10/30/2002 12:12:00 AM
Real good shot. Good and clear. Good focus. Only see one off-set. Good job.

Some of the skin textures on the arm are really ugly, and you need a new b&w cartridge, but the idea is unique and creative, so I'll overlook it.
10/29/2002 01:21:00 PM
You really must see a doctor about this condition. 7 JEM

impressive work. i like this.
10/29/2002 11:08:00 AM
Oh nifty!! I like it!
10/29/2002 09:51:00 AM
waaay cool. and very clever. I hope the hand isn't yours cause I can' imagine how you took the picture if it is. My eyes are completely fooled. I can't see how the real hand gets up. I only wish that the ring had been on straight instrat of twisted to the side - 10

Easily one of the best in this week's challenge. seasick - 9

very reminiscent of escher's "drawing hands." great concept
10/28/2002 11:36:00 PM
I just can't stop looking at this. wonderful
10/28/2002 10:39:00 PM
Excellent job! You spent a lot of time on this I can tell. I especially like the varying degrees of color saturation fading out to B&W in the photos. Nice effect. 10
10/28/2002 07:00:00 PM
The more I looked at this, the more I liked it. Very well done.
10/28/2002 06:43:00 PM
great shot! Really sticks to the theme and the framing is great. 9
10/28/2002 05:43:00 PM
Very cool!
10/28/2002 03:58:00 PM
Clever....smart, creative, fun. I LOVE IT......10 Justine

Great illusion! A couple things don't quite like correct, the lines through the lowest part of the arm and how it doesn't quite match up, but otherwise, this is terrific!!!

Very creative! bamaster (8)

Quality image, nice 'illusion'! I thought that this was a difficult challenge, I guess the creative juices weren't flowing as I had decided not to participate. This is a great idea, and makes me want to smack myself, 'Why didn't I think of that!' :O) Shelia I gave it a 10!
10/28/2002 09:49:00 AM
Neat. I like it.
10/28/2002 08:10:00 AM
You got my "wow" vote. Excellent. Beyond creative. 10
