An interesting photo, here are my honest thoughts as I look at it.
Things I like. The tonal range. Sounds silly but the hands have a weathered look, an intriguing subject. I also like the way they are isolated, no face, keep us thinking. Black jumper so hard to see arms again I like it.
The bits I am not so keen on, The title and the subject, sorry the context linking them is not strong enough for me. I may be alone but it does not link closely enough. Why British not English? Is there a GB faded tattoo on the right hand. If yes is it strong enough?
It is a portrait image, but the hands look so tight in the frame. If it were landscape would it make the hands look better placed? Should it be a square image?
Sorry if I give you more questions than anything, but your image intrigues me and these are my thoughts and reactions.
And in a way, I quite like it. But would have used a square image. It just feels like it should be square. I uploaded a mod for your review.
This is a very good shot, well observed. Hands, especially well worn hands such as theres make great images, and are powerful statements.
The image can benefit with a little more contrast, and be slightly sharper, - this combination make those great lines stand out more.
A square crop can work as suggested above, - as also can the original crop with some shadowing/darkening applied to lose the jeans and jacket.
In mod 1, - the original shot with sharpening and curves adjusted.
Mod2 is the alternate presentation.
Welcome to EPZ, - hope this is helpful,
prefer you image to any of the mods
