For some reason, seeing the texture of the man's hands really adds to this shot in my opinion.

the only thing i didnt like was the salt looked a litle over exposed so you couldnt distinguish the grains from each outher

not sure how you did the contrast / b/w treatment, but it works well here.

Great detail and composition. I am a sucker for a good B&W, and this is a great one! One of my top ten for the week.

I love shots that actually say something to me. That man is holding a precious gift bestowed upon humanity. Well composed and a nice juxtaposition of flesh and salt. The only improvement I can imagine is having the background further away from the DOF.

Interesting b&w. I like what you've done with the color of the hands...very rough and worn looking. Salt is a little over exposed. This should do pretty well.

Amazing hands. This is one of the best.

The white of the salt is too harsh for my liking. Otherwise a great shot with a nice contrast between the dark ?dirty? hands and the crystals.

love the graininess of this photo, the fact that you can see his fingerprints and the lines of his hands. Very nicely done

Wow, beautiful contrast, a light from the sides or below would have been a huge wow though!!!!

The center of the salt pile seems to wash out. I would like this better if it had the same sense of rich detail as the hands.

great use of contrast in the image.

good choice for B&W. Salt is a bit overexposed, but good picture.

Very nice contrast. I have some bets with people standing next to me that your the same guy that did the grain in the palm in the minimalism challenge. PM me if you're him!

I like this shot a lot, but I feel the texture on the hands it a tad oversharpened and the salt is blown out (at least on my monitor).
