Nicely toned picture - but I feel the hands seem to be "awkward". I can't get a grip on Aries, and the connection between frienship and loyalty and the hand. It seems the title is is too reliant on putting meaning into the picture and the picture alone would suggest no link.
The negative space seems a little too dominant - particularly the area between the thumb and finger plus the very dark area underneath the fingertips seems to have seperated the fingertips just that bit too much. They seem to be floating independantly of the fingers. The very dark area then seems to be totally at odds with the fingertips which appear to have burned right out.

Nice idea. You've got some great detail with the lines in the hand, and I likr the sepia tone. 3 fingertips are over-bright. 8

I love this shot. It is my fave from the bunch. It's creative & seriously moody. Love the sepia tone, lighting is excellent although a bit contradictory to the title. But who cares, 9

The lone hand, in this position, doesn't convey friendship or loyalty to me - perhaps it may have done if the viewpoint were of the hand reaching towards me? I like the image itself a lot, the detail comes through well in black and white. Lighting is a little harsh - my focus keeps returning to those white fingertips.

Nice texture, and colors. I also like the way the lighting casts shadows over the fingers.
