Tres bien Grayo. Une tres bonne idee et comme Greetmir, la transition du noir au gris est tres bien. Je n'ai pas grand chose a rajouter apart le fait que tu fais du bon travail. Continue comme ca!

Yeah ... English is not your mother tongue, I presume since you said hearth instead of heart, but that took nothing away from the photo for me. Unless you really meant the english word hearth as a double entendre but probably not.

The person that said the hot spot on your knuckle should have been burned in, the guy with no camera, must have missed the fact that this was a Basic Editing Rules Challenge that does not permit that. Besides ... that is surely what the knuckle would have looked like IRL and doesn't NEED to be fixed even if it WAS an Advanced Editing Rules Challenge IMO.

I LOVE the transition with the VERY dark background to the sweater to the speckled grey undershirt.

The only fault that I can find here is that the focus could be a TAD sharper and not so soft (a touch of Unsharp Mask might have made that not so obvious?) and that the bottom eighth of the image could have been lopped off for a more dynamic image.

All that said. I think this is a very warming and poignant image.

kind of a bland photo..
nothing really grabs my attention...
i think it might have been great if the lighting was not so studio..but more creative!

I like this image a lot. I think I might try to increase the contrast some and try it in color for the skin tones.
