No, those are real hands in front of the monitor -- legal under Basic rules today too. That's one thing which made it difficult to shoot; I had to both operate the camera (no remote) and get in position to "model" for the hands where they and the monitor would have the proper size and DOF relationship.

This seems to be more computer art than photography (to me). Also very fuzzy.

Nice deep blacks and contrast. That is about all this photo has going for it. Maybe there is some personal sentiment in it for you, but it's lost on me.

Interesting photo, not sure if you're going for opposites in black and white or opposites in opinions? Either way I'll go ahead and score it a little higher than average. Good job...

Unique idea and presentation. Not sure if there is a link between the hands and the page displayed. The hands are a bit crouded.
