    I'm personally not too into the concept, but you did a good job technically speaking. I like the highlights around the fingers, the cloud, the way the bracelets go with the theme. Your hand's a little underexposed because of the shooting conditions but you can brighten it up in post maybe.

    I agree, if you brighten up the hand a little I think it will be a nice image.

    The more you lighten it the more noise you will encounter. I added a slight vignette as well.

    Thanks, what exactly did you do to lighten it up? I'm pretty amateur at photoshop yet. I'm going to try and recreate it myself.

    Thanks again.

    Just added some fill light and used a brush to add in some brightness selecting only the arm.

    Do you shoot in RAW or JPEG?

    I like this shot! The only thing that bothers me is that it looks like a hand with only 4 fingers at first.
