What a nice capture. A higher f setting might have increased the depth of focus some. I wonder what this would look like in color. Nice composition with great impact.   Posted: 06/06/2021 18:07:22

Hi Alane: A very original subject and the hands against the dark background was a good choice. I do agree with Neal that better sharpness front to back on the hands would have been desirable. Would suggest using a much higher ISO and setting the lens aperture to f/16 would have brought those interesting bracelets into much better focus.   Posted: 06/07/2021 00:12:08

Hi Alane,
You managed to create a different presentation of "hands". This image must be striking in color, especially with the jewelry on her wrists. I'm sure you did well in the competition. Well done.   Posted: 06/10/2021 09:08:29

ALANE,

HANDS ARE REALY A TELLING OF A PERSON'S STORY, THERE IS SO MUCH TO LEARN BY THEM, THESE HANDS HAVE BEEN WELL WORKED AND HAVE SEEN MANY A HARD DAY

I LIKE THE PRESENTATION AND THE INTERLOCKING OF THE FINGERS, AS IF HOLDING THIS IMAGE TOGETHER.

HOPE YOU DID WELL IN THE COMPETITION, I KNOW THAT THE DOF HAS BEEN MENTIONED BY THE OTHERS,BUT IT REALLY DOESN'T BOTHER ME THAT MUCH AS IT KEEPS ME STUDYING THE PATERNS AND THE RINGS, EVEN THE NAILS..

I WOULD LIKE TO HAVE SEEN THE LIGHTING MORE EVEN ON EACH HAND, THE HAND ON THE LEFT SEEMS A LITTLE OVEREXPOSED THUS LOSING SOME DETAILS IN THE HAND.

NICE JOB THOUGH   Posted: 06/13/2021 17:35:44
