Location: Living room

My grandfater was in our living room with us telling us some storys and I noticed his hands.

I got my camera and candidly snapped some pictures while he talked. Used the IS on my lense because I had to take it at a slow shutter speed.

After my grampa said "Now, I don't know why the hell what you'd want a picture of my hand for" And I said "You know, artistic stuff" and he says "You're just like how your grandmother was." It's very true.

Critique Club Review:

Five first place ribbons.... I'm offically intimidated now...

Wow! I like everything about this picture. The two biggest features that strike me are the great detail in the hand, and how the depth of field gently holds the viewer's focus there.

Were I asked to suggest any possible improvement, I might try a sepia effect, to warm the picture just a little.

Congratulations on a great photo, and a very well deserved top 10 finish.

Really good one, dude. Nice to see a candid place so high. Too bad it didn't place even higher.

Nice b&w...lovely textures. Would try to crop bit tighter on right side to point attention more on hand than things behind.
