I've been going back through some of my favorite images of yours. I don't know why I didn't vote for this before. voted

Very neat. It catches the attention of my eye out of all the other photos in the album. I like the black and white better than the color version.

You do impressive work Bob
I really like what I have seen so far
I prefer the b/w as the hand doesn't seem to dominate as much as it does in the color version
In this image I see the hand as an extension of the sword or rapier (whatever it might be)

Fantastic DoF... -- and I love the B&W: makes it timeless, somehow...!

Looks like Lee's thrown down the gauntlet and you're rising to the bait. Tremendous choice and execution ;->
Guest 02-Feb-2006 22:28
Excellent - I love the mixture of strong diagonals with softer curves.
