For being a set up shot, I think the leveling could be better. Ther is a very strong horizontal line, and it's making a bit of a left turn. Overall though, the photo is very nice. I do like it a lot, and the use of neg. space is clear, and very good. 8 good luck in the challenge. ~hbunch7187~

Seems like an obvious idea when someone else thinks of it...well conceived and well executed.

Very well composed, though I would've had your model clench a bit harder to show struggle.

I like this simple image a lot. It's a great rule of thirds example and yet still original and punchy.

To me, this photo poses a friendly debate over which of the spaces is the negative space. It's the debate that keeps me interested, after the initial grin at this poor soul clinging to the edge. I would have preferred a perfectly even white area (the line is a tiny bit crooked), but the general composition is right on. Good lighting (maybe a bit more contrast?) and good use of negative space up top ... it weighs down on top of the fingers. 8

Wonderful division of space.

Very original. I like the composition. ... makes you wonder what is behind the person hanging on. 8

Interesting :) This is definitely a unique interpretation of the challenge... The focus on the fingers is a tad soft for my taste, and the flash appears to have washed out some of the finer detail in the fingers.

Very clever - really jumps out at you! I wish there was no thin grey line around our photos when they are displayed for us to judge - yours would otherwise be even more powerful, I think! - not your fault, I know! :) I do like the use of neg space here - a good example of where a single color is more effective in a negative space than a texture or other treatment.

Defines the concept of the topic.... besides it gives us the Whole grayscale on 3 elements.... Clear and Precise... I like it a lot

I realy love this

Not only does the image use negative space to show the image, the hand comes out of negative space itself. A douple meaning negative space--gets my 10 for this alone although it is not necessarily the most pleasing image to look at.

Well done - I like the contrast between black and white!

I wish I could see more stress on the fingers... as if they were really hanging on. Right now it looks like they are just resting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Another of these well taken shots, good framing etc, but ultimately my feeling is: Whats the point? Theres nothing really to hold any interest, nothing really being shown to me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Excellent!!! Nice contrast and composition (I almost detect that the 'line' is uneven - could be me). I like this very much - grrrreat work 10
