WOW! I love this!
However (I know....), I think you should have removed the reddish/brownish smear and probably cropped out the bangles. They're overblown.
E Etomi: Thanks for the tip Deji

I believe constructive critisism goes a longer way than positive comments so I'll do a little of both.

What I like:
-Subject and my interpretation of its meaning.*
-Black background.

What I dont like:
-Blown out writs bands. WAY too overexposed. It reminds me that flash was used. Some on the thumbnail as well.
-Title. I normally dont care about titles, but if you leave the view to decide what this shot means to them by not using a title that says what YOU think it means, then thats much better. In other words, don't make a title so specific, more general titles can apeal to larger audiences. Right now I know what this shot is of and its intention. If the title was more abstract or general, then it would speak to ME and it would be more special that way.

Overall, good shot. Just some technical things. Good job!
E Etomi: Thanks Reza, What do you think of the title now?

Omoge, I REALLY like this shot!!! I'd go on and on about how much I like it, but you'd tire of hearing it. Wow!! how'd you get the background? What was your hand on? Good freaking job!
E Etomi: Thanks girl! It was dark already, I just used the shadow tool in picasa ot make it darker and my hand was in the air

Well you look a lot lighter in colored than in black and white LOL!

I love the detail in the hand area,
the black background provide a delightful contrast
THIS IS PROBABLY OUT OF MY PURVIEW but i have to say it sha:
The finger nails look very natural.

I do not like the distracting red stripe on the left side of the hand.
dont know what that is.

Its a very catchy picture

Good work.
E Etomi: Thanks Mask. The red stripe doesn't show up on my monitor but there are very slightly reddish tones i guess...dunno. Also those are my fingernails lol

great concept shot. Very artsy. Negatives for me.. the bangles are a bit distracting but can see how it might work
E Etomi: Thanks attah. I've been attached to the bangle for a few days now, don't know why.

Hey Enimien, I am writing a blog on an online ayo game I found and I planned on using your pic (the ayo one) as the pic for the title(referencing you of course) but for some reason it doesn't show when I insert the link of ur blog in order to upload the pic directly from shutterchance. LOL long story but could you please email me the pic? It seems shutterchance prevents from saving pictures, which is good I guess. (

Thanks xx

All this one you peopel are saying is big big grammer. This is HOT!!!Loving it. It invokes so many things. The light hit it in the right places.... It's like she is reaching out to a light of hope that is reflecting on her bangles. You are about to inspire me. Keep it up my dear...SO FAR SO GOOD!!

Ooooh... eye-catching, great texture, very nice!
Hey, didn't know you had a picture up yesterday. Nice pic. like the hand against the black background. Really brings out the textures and detail, although i think picture would have benefitted from a tighter crop. Still, it's a very nice image (and nice hands too).

i like this picture, it didn't evoke any thoughts in me for some reason but I just liked the concept. Beautiful hands though and nice natural manicure.

Hands are fascinating subjects. I'm used to seeing shots of hands in the act of performing some task, this is a different take. Well done.
