This is a great concept, and nicely done. I'm not sure I like the sepia and monochrome combination, but it does help differentiate between the old photograph and current day.

I think I would like it better if it was all in color or all b&w. Not sure about the mix here, maybe it's just that the hands look cold compared to the warm color of the picture (in my opinion). Sorry!

although not crazy about the processing, I love the comp and sentiment about this one. Very nice!

I think the shot is such a great idea, but I really think the desat ruined it, imo. I can't put it into words very well, but it even seems to change the emotion, making it colder instead of a warm, loving yet poignant shot.

love this idea. but I have to say, the pp is a tad to much here

I love the impact of this shot. However, it took me a few seconds to realize that it was a man holding the picture. Maybe it was because of his long thumb fingernail, but it threw me. With voters only giving a second or three to review a shot I think it may hurt your score. I hope not because this is a great shot. Not voting...

This is a strong image, but I think the sepia toning on the picture doesn't really mesh well with the B&W in the rest of the photo.

Arrangement of the composition elements is fantastic! This is a image with a story to tell and it does a great job of telling the story. It captures your thoughts and begs you to have questions! Technically great exposure, contrast, DOF. I did notice a slight fringe glow next to the right hand.

I like the idea very much, a bit uncertain about the high contrast BW. Selective desaturation works well in conveying the concept, but if it's fading memories which are portrayed, a softer processing might have worked better, even if it enhances the time passed.

Powerful image.

I like the story you are portraying. I'm just not a fan of the coloring. Make the hands look like a corpse, which isn't appealing to me.

I wish it weren't de-saturated.
