Neat Image

Adding :

All those who left comments about the lint on the background are right. This is a piece of black wool, which I'd vacuummed and rolled with tape to remove as much lint as possible, but it wouldn't all come off. I couldn't get rid of anymore within the basic editing rules unfortunately.

Great idea and neat special effect. the perspective and lighting could use a punch, however. 6

Nice composition and very creative! I did not vote on this but would have gave it a 6. I think if you wanted to improve this photo, just IMHO, I would have had the hand placed on black poster board. The current background allows for the white specs (lint, maybe) to be noticed.

Nice idea and execution. Background has some distractions, and it might be interesting to work 5 o'clock into the idea.

Cute idea, lint on background a little distracting.

Cool idea. Would have been nice to see more detail in the hand and less detail in the background. Still worth 6 for original idea.

i like the idea on this one a lot. there have been a lot of clock "hands" in this challenge so far. black background is definitely a good idea here, but the image would benefit from removal of lint/etc. to the best of your abilities (edit: not by spot editing, er, i mean brushing them off if possible). lots of bits of dust, hairs, and such are glowing on the left side of the image and it detracts somewhat. hair near the blade (pinky side) of th ehand is also lit up and a bit distracting. i'm not suggesting you pluck those hairs out or anything but maybe a different angle for the light would solve that problem. otherwise good job. -6-
