Nearly two years since my father, just over 1 since my mother, and I'm finally getting around to it.

I will procrastinate anything.

Sometimes, we need to put off mourning - until we can bear it. The commenters who don't get it are fortunate, in one way or another.

I like the DOF used here, and the simplicity of a shot which conveys significantly more complex emotions. Lighting is excellent, but I'm betting you knew that already.

The lighting is great, but I might up your f-shot. I think in this case it would look better to have all of the hands in focus. 6

Time now, perhaps, to move forward - not to forget, but to regain your life. A photo with palpable emotion.

I think this shot shows a lot of emotion but I guess I just don't get it. Nice shot though.

A sentiment we can all relate to. I like the DOF.

Very interesting use of procrastination. That feeling you have after someone dies - "I should never have put off all those things"...

Sorry for your loss....but I don't really get it. Fingers very blurry...not sure how this is procrastination...

The hands themselves make this shot special. Maybe turned up the contrast in them? The sweater adds nothing useful and the negative space...well, negative space is negative space and it's right enough to have it there, I suppose. I'm thinking that some sort of textured and generally recognisable thing like - brick wall, grass, sky...
Excuse me for thinking out loud, but the hands are as good as that praying icon thing (nearly).
Anyway, 6 for what you have.

I don't understand - you put off mourning?
