Ah, the master. I have seen nothing close. I would wholeheartedly recommend you check out as this week they have the weekly theme is "hands" and if you post, I am certain this would place in the top 10. You'd certainly get highest marks from me. Let me know if you do post - it's an open challenge so anyone can enter. Oh, love this shots btw :). Vote

Fantastic shot Chris. Are you passing it to me or just admiring your chunky roll? ;)
Guenter Eh17-Mar-2006 19:21
So beautiful in it`s simplicity Chris! Three fingers sharp and the other two in blur, holding a self made burning (!) cigarette - so much tension and expression in this picture! Fantastic add to this famous gallery again!
Antonis Sarantos17-Mar-2006 19:19
You know that your treatment here is awesome, don't you?
Jim Chiesa17-Mar-2006 19:16
Simply beautiful, Chris. I think you have a gift of "taming" light in such a way, you are a reference in this piece of art.
