This is part of a project I'd been thinking about for a while, but wasn't sure about executing, the response to my "Standing Still" image, prompted me to try and develop the idea. Basically, its to try and show how we project our thoughts and emotions using different parts of our body. The whole series should be B&W I think as it seems more emotive.

This shot was taken with my 50mm prime, at f/1.8, 1/13sec at ISO100.

Thanks for looking!

I like how you have highlighted the ring, portraying marriage.

Interesting idea for a project and yep, it'll work well in bw. Here's what I think about this image, though: If it's "Reaching Out" you wanna portray, there are two possibilities.

One, reaching out to someone who needs help. In which case, turn the hand around, palm up, with fingers slightly curved...as if to say, "Here, take my hand".

Two, reaching out to someone FOR help. In which case, palm down is perfect. But maybe try a view of reaching forward straight ahead (and not at an angle). Also include your whole hand and don't let the fingers be so straight. Let the fingers on the left curve slightly down. Imagine reaching for an apple on a table.

Just my immediate reaction. Sorry if I've rambled on too much Smile

Thanks for all the comments and input, I suppose now I've put it out there I've got to do it (which was kind of the idea). I'm off work next week, so hopefully I'll have a few more shots to update the project with.

All the best

Steve
