OK, so I thought I'd have a go at redoing my own first entry.
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/661/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_494498.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/661/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_494498.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

I thought I'd see if I can redo this with a lighter mood and generally make a different image out of it. I liked the dark feel of the original, especially in the context of the challenge, but wanted to try the reverse - especially as the hand is the same: then girlfriend, but now fiancée :)

I'm happy that I've improved on the original, certainly from a technical point, but this is not likely to score well in what is essentially a free study, and this is a mid-5 effort at best. Nevertheless, I found the process useful and I'm pretty happy with the result.

[Post Challenge Edit]

Wow, cracked a six! Glad some people liked it, one of my most satisfying shots of late.

I like the soft glow. This does a nicer job of conveying what a single link might mean.
