I am attempting to photo a variety of different subjects and value your comments.

Photography is my hobby and I enjoy viewing your comments and images , because they help me become better. I look through my lens and see art, beauty, color, texture and detail. I hope you enjoy seeing my journey from my point of view. Thanks for stopping by.

I like the concept. Also the b&w processing is very nice, however, I would like to see a little sharper focus on the hands.

@Bill Brown: Thank you for your input. It really is my bad - I did not mention in my description that I had cropped this from a larger photo so the focal quality is not as good as it could be.

Fascinating shot, I want to know why they are trying to break fingers :-)

@Curly: LOL! My son and his girlfriend were working on a project and were not trying to break fingers that day.

Great composition, although going on from what you said to Bill I think I would have tried to get in closer

Great shot! I have always thought that pictures of hands as a very powerful image.
