The shot represents how I'm feeling these days. It was taken on my deck, in complete darkness, with one flash up above very high just skimming the surface of my hand.

I agree with ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' jminso but it is for those reason I did not rate it high. I loved the photograph and it really was one of my favorite of the challenge. But I vote based on quality of the photograph, visual impact to myself, and how well it meets the challenge. To me this said darkness and not night. If the challenge had been darkness this would have been a solid 9 from me if not a 10. Personally I only give out one 10 in a challenge (to the photograph that met all my criteria stated above the best)

Very well done photograph.

There is so much that can be said about this shot and it was one of my higher votes at a 9. It is simple yet open to interpetation. For me it conveys a lost soul reaching out of the darkness but they will just keep reaching for something that isn't there. Or it could just be a photo of a hand. That is what I love about it, it can be almost anything you want. Great job and much under appreciated. Posting this on the Posthumous Ribbons, Part IV thread.

Nice shot but nothing about it says "night" to me. Says dark, like in a cave. Hope you do well

Cool idea. Outdoors at night or studio?

NO thanks. Scarey pic though. Good effect.
