Very strong image as per normal. It's all in the lighting. People take note.

And what's wrong in being jealous of Nico's work? I know I am:-)

You guys are all jealous of his work (meant in a complimentary way to Nico).

Very creative, absolutely "Nico blue" style. Nevertheless, I have problems with some of the fingers. The index and the ring finger almost look chopped off. I know you want your finger tips "in the flesh" to express the physicality, but I don't really see the finger tips. I also get irritated by the fifth finger which somehow looks unnatural to me. All in all, I wonder whether the same setup with a slightly different position of the hands and the fingers would give even more impact without the "irritating" (at least to me) factors.
It's the very good photos that attract comments to make them even better.

Wonderful work of light and shadows. Not to mention composition and pose.
But aren't we getting a bit narcissistic here Nico ?.
By the 80th challenge it won't be part of your body left tha we haven't seen, LOL. :)
Keep the good job.

Your technical ability, which is very good indeed, is once again exceeded by your creativity. Great job.

The rest of us go off traipsing through the countryside in search of good photo subjects, and you always come up with something great just looking at yourself.
