Don't do this
Posted By: xs400, 04-06-2008, 03:00 PM

This week's challenge #52 subject was 'hands'. This is one of the shots I composed for the challenge. I didn't actually take the shot, I had my daughter take it. I composed and post processed the shot, but since my daughter actually clicked the shutter, I didn't enter the shot in the challange. Here's what my daughter and I came up with. Like the title says, "Don't do this."
K100D + A 50mm f/2.0

Frank,

Excellent concept and very good tonality in the B&W interpretation. Kinda hit me because I just finished watching American Gangster.

BY the way... you only show one hand and the contest calls for "hands" ..

Thanks for your comments on our pic. It's greatly appreciated.

"... the contest calls for "hands""

Good point! There's only one hand in this shot.

Very funny Stephen.

I'd also have to agree with Stephen regarding the tonality - it was what first hit me about the image. That, and the composition.

I agree with the tone and the Impact the image has. Hits you right away. I like the needle pointed toward the blemish on the skin, makes you wonder how many times that site has been poked. Also the light coming from below. It really adds depth and contrast to the image. The hair standing up on the hand gives the image that "I'm scared of this" or "I don't want to do this" look.

My only nit pick would be the background. A little too busy (the white framed whatever it is in the upper left).

I'd like to see the exact same shot with a totally black background and see what the result is.
