This charming hand (Guest post) 2006-04-2328 Comments
Today we have a contribution from our friend Björn, who is one of my university colleagues. He makes beautiful pictures such as this one. Link to his gallery.
Here is his comment: What do you do with pretty girls who are sick of getting their face photographed at breakfast? Take their hand... and don't forget to take a photo. This shot was taken, as you might have guessed, one-handed.
The contrast is excellent. :-) tetsu @ 2006-April-23 13:07
Very striking how the absence of true color has moved this on from the original. A smooth, charming but thought-provoking shot : online palmistry will see a boost from this, methinks. AG @ 2006-April-23 13:43
Wow what a beatiful shot the lighting and contrast is fantastic I also like the good use of DOf Fantom Poet @ 2006-April-23 14:18
The original is good but the monochrome with a sepia touch like this is far better. Like the reflections and lines in the beautiful hand. eterisk @ 2006-April-23 15:01

Good level of detail, depth and lighting. Nice capture. Visiting his gallery now. Emré @ 2006-April-23 23:39
Thanks for the positive feedback. This was a real collaboration - I liked my original (coloured) version for its warm and lively colours, but the (de)focused geeks had something more artistic in mind... and it worked out great :) Björn @ 2006-April-23 23:43

I really love the detail here. Hands are amazing -- such a beautiful part of the body, though I've found them to be immensely difficult to take pictures of! I can't stop looking at this one. Ryan @ 2006-April-27 16:58
