wow, cool, I just found this photo, but it looks a lot like the photo I just took for the black and white challenge (memories)

also, did you adjust hue/saturation to get the blue?

try playing around with gradient maps and photo filters- they'll give you a smoother look.

this really does remind me of lord of the rings though, nice job getting the mood dialed in

Nice take on the challenge. Appropriate mood in this pic with the contrast between the bright ring and the blue hand and BG. A touch of fill light on the RH side would have been nice to help separate the fingers from the BG.

Neat, but I think more emphasis could be placed on the ring.

this is nice. the contrast is good, the composition is good. The blue coloring works well here though i think it might be a tad too strong. maybe bring the saturation down a tiny bit, but that's also just my personal taste. I hope you do well, and good luck.

I like the idea and am thinking stark B&W rather than blue?

cool idea - maybe a glow filter on the ring would have really set this apart. The hand is a little too purple to me, but that's just a personal pref.
