Very odd feel to this. I like how strange and original it is though…can see it took a bit of brain power to make it happen. Nitpicking I would have not cut the top of the photo so close to the hand…given it a little more room. Thinking your choice of blue to symbolize coldness or even lifelessness has a certain weight to the image…other just might think it looks too weird. I think you did a great job shooting for the challenge and being creative at the same time.

It looks to me like you are trying to grab an ugly bug flying through the air so you can crush it and throw it away. Is that what people with purple hands do? I have a feeling I've missed your point.

Wonderful idea, you made a good job of it. I like the texture and colour of the hand, the wrist seems a bit pale in comparison.
