I was doing a photo shoot of my sister (age 16) and she was posing, and I saw her hands cross like this and was like... STOP! Played around with color, and B&W went for the warmer tone of Sepia :-)

I especially love the "coloration" that you chose for this shot. Composition and lighting all work well for me.

Beautiful photo... almost surreal. Great exposure and just the right amount of light... without any real hot spots. Job well done! My only 10 of the challenge.

I like the composition and the use of DoF. If you could have blacked out everything but the hands & arms this would be fantastic.
Lighting and detail on the hands is good, and I do like the overall image.

Gorgeous! I love the DOF in this, and the lighting. The composition is perfect. It's just wonderful. A 10 from me.

Would be "Au Natural" had it been in natural skin tones, and would have been worth about 3 or more points over as is. Good composition just needs better execution. PTL

The softness of this image is wonderful. Good job.

I really like the soft focus on this. I think it creates a mood. The angle and framing/cropping are nice, and I think that the lighting is very good as well. I wish that somehow it were possible to get the bottom half blackened out as well. Although I'm not totally sure about that. With the brown area, it gives it quite a bit of depth, and if it were blackened, that depth might not be there, so I'd have to see it to compare. Otherwise, a very nice shot. Good luck in the challenge.

The title of this shot makes me like it even more. I like the soft feel in this picture, I like the short depth of field, I like the background, I like the cropping. Overall I like this picture! Well done :)
