I went swimming near the nuclear plant and now the doctor's not sure what's wrong with me! I'm not sure either, but I decided that I'd used it for an opportunity to get a PaD for today and not worry about it for the time being! (Note on 01/07/2006: I replaced this image with a larger version of it just because it's one of my favorites. I still used the small square version for the montage though, which was my original goal with the picture a day project).

Hi Paul,

Looks like Verizon "borrowed" your idea. There is an ad in the August 9th issue of PC Magazine (pg. 23) with a photo that is remarkably similar to this one. I don't know if you should feel flattered or violated. As soon as I saw the ad. I thought, "I've seen that photo before" then the name Paul Walters popped into my head. You're on my list of favorite PBase photogs. I love your work.

The sound of one hand applauding just got much louder!
CJ Morgan21-May-2004 08:53
This is one of your best images Paul -- as creative as any PAD image I've seen.
Guest 20-May-2004 16:36
A side effect of self abuse?
JD Anderson14-May-2004 01:25
I would think this is funny, except I was a reactor operator for 12 years and my hands really do look like that! LOL! OK, so I am a reactor operator, but as far as I can tell, the only side effect has been going bald! :)
Guest 21-Apr-2004 18:35
Absolutely too funny!
Elizabeth Glass20-Apr-2004 14:14
Ewwww! Very nicely done.
Carolyn B.17-Apr-2004 06:14
Wow! Wow! Repeat three more times for the rest of the...hands. Very interesting image.

I bet you give the BEST back rubs!
Guest 13-Apr-2004 04:53
Man oh man! This reminds me the quantum physics courses. Such a mathematically and esthetically beautiful photo!
Ian Morehouse13-Apr-2004 00:25
Very good image manipulation. Forget the doctor go see a sideshow or even visit the red light district, you could make a fortune, by just raising your hand. LOL
Karthik Raja12-Apr-2004 22:16
Imagine tickling someone with those... ha ha... I love it.
Guest 12-Apr-2004 19:29
great manipulation - original image, if a little scary ;-)
Gary Blanchette12-Apr-2004 15:52
Yikes! That is too scary!
Guest 12-Apr-2004 15:11
Ha ha ha. Now you can have many fingers in the pie. Should be a politician you have the hand for shaking that is for sure.
Mark Koeppen12-Apr-2004 15:03

The funny thing is that people think this is can they be so cold?

lol, great job though.

Guest 12-Apr-2004 14:54
LOL! Oooh... creepy!
Jeff Gegner12-Apr-2004 13:40
Excellent! This is nicely done and an interesting image too boot!
virginiacoastline12-Apr-2004 13:12
CLEVERLY DONE . . . THAT had to take you an hour or two, eh!! Nice blending of the textures - ESPECIALLY with the strong lighting differences & the shadows . . an almost seamless conversions from fingers to wrists . . . I would LOVE to see the original of this one!!
Guest 12-Apr-2004 13:03
GAAH!! It's MUTANT HAND MAN! ;) Great work here, Paul!! I see you're having a blast with your last few weeks! :oD As you should .. go out with a bang!

Very it!
Robin Reid12-Apr-2004 05:02

Nice shot.
