It's so...majestic and compelling. The hands almost invite you to join them, or be them.
From: English Literature Student (Sun May 22 16:19:54 2005)
The arcs and natural curves are to me disturbing. They are reaching but not desperately, more like aspiring and climbing to an affinity.

Hello. I love how the pose is going. I may not be a photographer, but I love to draw. I hope you don't mind me drawing them.

From: Amature Photographer (Thu Sep 22 17:03:45 2005)
I really like it, it's differnt, you really don't ususally see how beautiful hands can be, it looks very exotic almost like a bird of some sort.
From: tyler (Sat Sep 24 15:35:51 2005)

From: marko polo (Thu Sep 29 03:57:59 2005)
well lit shot- thats about it really
From: Rosie (Fri Sep 30 19:47:07 2005)
Stunning, they are the epitamy of grace and elegance. There is truth but almost no logic. You have a beautifully insightful way of presenting the physical expression of the soul.
From: Clara (Sun Nov 6 14:14:35 2005)

From: Virginia (Wed Dec 21 00:32:17 2005)

From: mich lou (Tue May 2 07:01:12 2006)
this picture is fantastic. the use of light and shadow is great. wonderfull job
From: mark (Fri May 5 05:00:19 2006)
i like the way that the lower (Background) hand assists the shapes of the the more dominate hand (foreground)
i feel that this would not be a hard image to draw and i hope that everone that lays eyes on the picture art lover or not should exspand ideas on this peice of art!

i like his drawing however the lightening is to bright in the background and i feel it takes away the beautiful curves etc away from the photo x

i was looking at photgraphy using parts of the body. i found this picture amazing. really shows off the curves and delcate shapes of the arms and hands. i will be experimenting photography myself using hands. hopefully i will acheive something similar.
From: student (Wed Dec 19 11:22:12 2007)
I see two hands interlocking with each other. They are attempting to reach something, and are almost like a ladder to somewhere they desire. As two hands interlocking, it reminds me of a relationship between two people, as they journey together, reaching places they’ve never been before.
