Yup - that would scare me too. Looks like you've been almost murdered and dumped in a shallow grave too. Bummer!

Uuuu, are you a forensic pathologist? Great shot and really good portrayal of grittiness. The forefront is a bit fuzzy, and I would also suggest not to cut off the thumb - either leave it in or cropp it off.

Ohhhh gee. All these nightmare pics are gonna give me nightmares! Great detail here, revealing the texture of the soil and the skin. Colouring is good and so is exposure, dof, and comp. A simple but good picture. 10!

A nightmare come true! Nice composition and idea. Fun contrast between light fingers and darker earth.

The worms make the shot.

great imagination, i would have liked it better if the red was desaturated making the fingers look more gray.

I have had this dream. I like the magots. Focus seems slightly off. Still giving you a 9.

Very original and a definate nightmare. I would have llike to have seen the whole hand though. Perhaps zoomed out a bit. Good job, good creativity, good luck!

Excellent capture, I think this would be everyone's nightmare

Very disturbing thought...yikes!! Looks a bit over exposed but you got the idea across.

I love the grubs, fits the challenge well..

good job! the grubs were a nice touch in adding to this effect. Wonderful texture.

Love the concept. Decent execution. GREAT focus! What would Cool change??? Crop out more to the right to get the whole thumb. And that one piece of green is very distractiong and changes the dark feeling for me at least! Other than the one leaf I'm glad you kept what little color their is though. My score is 7

Good idea, and excellent execution (no pun intended)

How morbid! A real nightmare. But why did you cut the thumb off like that, seeing the whole hand would have been a lot better in my opinion.

Really liked this one. The consept is excellent. I like the little bug in the hand. Perhaps see just a touch more of the thumb.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Definately some bonus points for the maggots!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

The lack of vibrant color really brings out your idea of death here. 8 from me.
