Fun image, but the lines need to "lead" somewhere, or to something

it used to be a common belief that these lines lead through life

With great interest I opened your submission. Why with great interest? Because I, too, had entered not one but two entries of palm lines. After all they are indicative (leading) lines are they not?

Alas, I withdrew both before the challenged flipped to the voting mode. The reasons I withdrew both are the same I see in this submission: self-photographed hands do not seem to show well. Both shots I prepared for entry made the mounts of my hands look like hams! I'm sure it was a matter of PoV but it was most unflattering. Secondly, the coloring - even in B&W and/or with Topaz effects applied - the skin looked cadaverous. Then, in my circumstance, the partially desaturated one was too soft. While your image is very sharp, unfortunately, it bears similar defects of my abandoned shots: PoV aberrations and coloring.

As painful as it is to receive a vote of one, it is more painful to assign a vote of one. One is what I am voting on this photo. I hope I have explained sufficiently the reason for this low score and would invite you to contact me after the voting is finished if you wish to plumb my reasoning further. Sorry.
