You and Ernst can, in different styles, capture a lot in a photo of hands. These are weathered, scarred, wrinkled hands of someone who's been on the earth a little while. The positioning is powerful too.

Wow this is really powerful, the composition, the processing, the missing two fingertips. I really like this!

I almost don't want to see the original to spoil the magic, but could you give a quick hint on how you did this? I'd like to try it.

You need to print this! S-

Everyone else has said it well or better. One word: powerful.

This is definitely one of your better images. Simple but strong, emotive without apology. While the theme isn't new, the subject is unique enough to make it stand on its own. The processing is gorgeous. It definitely doesn't look flat or embossed, giving a more natural feel to the hands. Two thumbs up from me.
