Another hand shot - this time I collared my Mum in her garden a couple of weeks ago in the early evening sun. Added photo edging in PS by scanning an old crinkled and damaged photo for the worn look and toned using Hue/Saturation.

Thanks for taking a look. Lyns x

I was going to say that you need to change your washing-up liquid or at least start wearing rubber gloves .... then you said it was your Mum.

This is so clever Lyns. Love the distressed look and it really suits the image.

Cheers. Dave.

Another great image Lyns and well presented, I wondered how this type of worn photo look was achieved, so thanks for that. And yes I agree No.3 is a bit special.

Another excellent high contrast shot Lyns. Great detail in the fingers especially around the knuckles, super lighting and very well composed. I love the old crinkled framing you have used which really emphasises the shot and the perfect title. Very well done and congrats on the RC award. BIG CLIK,
Joe

This is wonderful. It is an old hand (forgive me for saying that) that looks as if it has lots of nice things to tell. Very well done, love this effect and the feeling it conveys.

Thanks Alan, dven, Mark & Dave for your kind comments. x

My Mum's hands are basicly an older version of mine, we have exactly the same hands only my Mum's fingernails are really white (naturally) which i always wanted. Mine are just plain old boring pink and like to peel and break frequently. Lyns x

Good work. We shall have to compare notes Smile My only suggestion, and its something I need to work on as well, is the photo needs some grunge to match the frame.
