Hi there,

very creative and great composition, awesome texture in the hands. I have a father with hands that look similar so it made this shot really relatable...

Every time I look at this, I smile. It has such a down to earth sense and the lines and colors with that perfect touch of detail - just amazing work. This would make a terrific magazine cover for "Organic Gardner."

"WOW", you did it Mike, and I am just so proud of you mate, as this one is so well deserved.....
This so deserved the red ribbon, so CONGRATULATIONS mate......
It really does reminds me of my own Father, as he always had a wonderful vegetable garden, and also dirty hands just like this. It actually brings a tear to my eye.....

The hands and the beans are simply beautiful. The BG is distracting but there's no easy way around that in basic, since the beans and the BG are both green so doing a BG desat is not feasible if youw ant the green beans. Good uck with it!

I like the strong message this picture tells. Love the details and sharpness especially the dirt and lines on the hand. On a side note, I'd like to see the background more blur.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/03/2006 06:32:41 PM
love the textures
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/03/2006 05:44:00 PM
Not sure if it fits the theme but an excellent capture (also considering that no advanced post processign was allowed) . I wonder how it would be a B&W version from the luminosity channel in photoshop!
