A lovely warm image, Steph.
Walter O. Koenig08-Jan-2010 22:23
The high iso works very well here, especially when I see your shutter speed and I assume they did not let you bring your tripod. Nice depth and details on this shot.
Doug Cruden08-Jan-2010 21:09
I agree, the high ISO visible in the background adds rather than subtracts from the composition...great shot Stephanie, a rich and warm subject beautifully taken
J. Scott Coile08-Jan-2010 20:45
Must be MIDAS ;-)
Phillip Normanton08-Jan-2010 20:29
Oh, but it's rude to point - or is he showing off his girlie polished fingernails?! lol Super tones - and the high-iso grainy dof manages to add to the whole rather than detract :o)
Ronald Bijtenhoorn08-Jan-2010 20:23
That's close! Well composed and nice shallow DOF. V!
Cindi Smith08-Jan-2010 20:00
Wow, the man with the golden hand. I like it, the dof! If it is made of gold I will just take it and sell it!
maggie_falconi08-Jan-2010 19:49
Beautifully composed photo Steph. wonderful colors, lovely shine on the bronze!! V
LynnH08-Jan-2010 19:06
Nice with the ISO as is. Really like the "in your face" POV and close details. V
lisamidi08-Jan-2010 18:50

Bernard Davis08-Jan-2010 18:40

Norman Richard08-Jan-2010 16:12
You know! Most of them had terrible futures... you gotta watch what you sign.
Ed McConnell08-Jan-2010 15:50

Nancy Good08-Jan-2010 12:44
Loving the detail, Stephanie. Even the "noise!" :-) Do agree with Alister that it would have been nice to see a bit mor space below the hand, but it's still an awesome composition!
iamjv08-Jan-2010 12:07

Lovely tones and details. -v-

Superb color, and the comp is very good, Is this full frame? If so not much you can do, if now, it is a little tight at the bottom, I would have considered leaving a little more space below the lower part of the hand. Otherwise a lovely image with good flow through to the OOF BG...
Michal Leszczynski08-Jan-2010 10:27
Excellent close-up photo, very good sharpness and details. V.
