A warmer version of yesterday's upload.
Many thanks to everyone who left clicks and comments.
My particular thanks to Andy and Graham for their User Awards which I was delighted to receive.
Yesterday I desaturated most of the image in order to focus on the hands. This includes warm layers - and today I think we all need our thermals WinkWinkWink
Thanks for looking.

Exactly what I thought.
What a difference colour can make. The bottom looked like water in the mono, and here it looks like flames.

Michelangelo, Paree, all come to mind, it is one of those creations that bring back an image of great standing, amazing work, created by the creator of processing in colour. fascinating work of art Helen.

I love the warm colours and hues here, Helen, but I prefer the previous one. It's darker, colder, more sinister and has an H.R. Giger feel to it Smile
