    The second one has some real emotion in it. There's a story there.

    That first one... is sexy as all getout. I like the calmness of it and the shallow DOF. The clothing/blanket/whatever in the forground is a little distracting. I'd rather be able to tell what it is or have it not there, so I guess that and the DOF work against each other. The lighting is great!

    But isn't the ring on upside down? huh? huh?
    Damn.

    I really like the 2nd one. I think the tone of the picture matches the emotion very well.

    I'd like the 1st better if the fold of blanket in the foreground was gone. I love the warmness of the tone, but the oof foreground is distracting.

    Both images seem soft to me. I'd like greater DOF to see more details/texture in the hands.

    Are these your hands? I find it near impossible to shoot my own hands.

    I'd agree they are a mite soft, but it doesn't detract from the effect of the images. I'd also agree the foreground of the first one does pull the eye away from the hand-on-skin sexuality of the image....try it again, girl! I think you're onto something here. :thumbsup:

    Leave it to MD..... :roll: :lol:


    I love that second one.... so much emotion.... I like how you can't see the background and even most of the arm and back of the hand. Great job on that one! :thumbsup:

    I love the colors of the first one but I agree with all the others about the blanket.

    ya had to do this, didn't you? something about a woman's hands... i'm a legs man, and there's definitely alot to be said for falling into a woman's eyes, (alright, like MD, i find everything about a woman to be beauty in its own right) but most definitely find myself attracted to a woman's hands. is this a fettish?

    i really dig #2- the tension is exquisite. there is a deep seeded message here from you to the rest of the world... hmmm... wonder what it is? lighting and composition are fantastic.

    i like the serenity of #1, and again the composition (less the foreground blanket, perhaps) the goosebumps on the skin in midground are sexy as hell....

    awright, i gotta go take a cold shower now.
