Not sure if the softness/blurring was intentional or not, but its a little distracting to me to be honest.

Great smiles and moment of triumph capture. The tight centred focus brings out the key subject very well although (from my own taste only) I might have prefered either a tighter crop when you shot the picture (appreciating that you could not change this afterwards)

Comment by PHOTOKID:
Good group shot, the skin seems to have a reddish tint to it how ever. But it is great how much happiness is conveyed in this shot.

Comment by CNovack:
A very nice recreation of the original. You have some good details here and there in the composition but I think you could capture some more. First off the angle is a little too extreme such that the names are not AS visible as they could be. I would recommend standing at eye level to the names and maybe at a 50 to 60 degree angle away from the surface of the wall to be more akin to the angle seen in the original. Lighting is also an area that needs a bit of improvement - a large portion of the hands & arms are in shadow while the portions that do show have some blown highlights that we cannot fully see the details of the hands (such as the wrinkles and fingernail on one finger). Given that this is more than likely natural lighting you need to be careful in getting the right exposure. It may take some bracketing (taking multiple shots with different apertures and/or shutter speeds) to get the correct exposure. With correct exposure you can get all the objects in the shot to have some nice even lighting. If this is a conversion from color to B&W be careful with the Brightness/Contrast levels and/or Highlight/Midtone/Shadows for too much can blow highlights...although these same controls can be utilized to correct some of the blown highlights and deep shadows if you just play around with it. Lastly the position of the hands really doesn't lend itself too well to the emotional impact of the photo for the hand in the foreground looks like it is pressed to rest on the wall rather than read the names (it is the position of that thumb that gives that impression). The reflections are also a bit too far away from their reflected source and it makes the scene look a bit too confusing and busy. Having the hand lay flat or closer to the surface would make the "touch" against the wall have more gravitas for two reasons. One, the refection would be closer and thus less of a distraction. Second, a more subtle setting of a somber mood would be established with the living hand touching the wall of names and all that is 'given' back is just a reflection; there is no warmth of human touch back to make contact with that hand resting on the wall.

Comment by Judi:
I like the attempt but the hands and etching become a little lost in the tones and angle of the image.

Comment by see:
If you want to grab my heart, the “Wall” will do it. In this emulation I think you missed on the full emotion of ClubJuggle’s in a few ways. The original had a better angle to the wall, the hand placement has more natural feel to it, and the lighting is smoother. Giving all that this in a challenge by itself would be a top 20 picture, but compared to the original I can only give it a 7.
