  #145 Hands (revisited)
Entry 2 of 25
Behind the glass       ©2014 bryanshoots
Panasonic DMC-LX7       2nd place, 152 points
1/200s, f3.2, ISO 80, 90mm, Normal Program, Pattern, no flash
Post-Processing: Cropped, rotated, adjust curves in lightroom. Darken the face a little bit to emphasize the hands.       Extra Info: After a powerful typhoon, we drove around town to gather supplies. It was raining and were stuck in traffic. A vehicle in front of us was carrying a passenger (little girl). I took photos of her and luckily this is the shot where she place her hand on the glass window.

    Thanks for the outtakes, they certainly show you have a good eye for composition. May I suggest you post them in the Forum for outtakes so everyone might see them. Too good not to share widely.

    Wow. Thank you guys. I appreciate all of the comments. Here is the original shot and some of the outtakes.

    Congrats, it was my top pick. And to hear that this was not staged, amazing!

    I love this. By far the best shot of them all, imo.

Jul 27, 2014
    I like the multiple frames that are focusing attention on the hand, the texture of the weatherbeaten truck and the raindrops

    Fantastic shot. This is exactly the image I wanted to capture but no opportunities found.

    You had a good luck with the photo. Dd you try a closer crop?

    I really like the mystery of this image which is heightened by the absence of the face. Is it the hand of a boy or girl? What kind of vehicle is it? Where is it going? Why is the hand on the window? The viewer gets to fill in all the blanks. The rain adds another layer of interest. Good cropping to create an intriguing composition.

    Difficult to say what I like most about this shot. The textures of the worn red paint, the rain (on both planes) and the distant window are superb. At first I disliked not seeing the left frame of the window but now realize that it would cramp the dominance of the hand. Kudos on your timing - great shot!

    I rate this highly. It's a great unstaged opportunistic photo that gets the imagination going.

Jul 27, 2014
    amazing picture, and all the better for your description of the context.

beautifully done, especially for an unplanned shot.

Jul 26, 2014
    A successful shot in many levels: aesthetically pleasing, it tells a story, and very interesting juxtaposition of different elements.

Jul 26, 2014
    You have managed to take the theme and extend it to a very effective textural presentation. Nicely composed and exposed.

    This has all the elements of a great shot, texture, interest, geometric pattern, framing, mood, colour, and a human element. As good as it is, I still think it could have been better. My sense is the framing looks off centre but since I don't know what is to the left of the frame, I don't know what you had to work with. I'd like to see the uncropped version in outtakes.

    like this one a lot. more heavy crop to bring the hand into play.

Jul 24, 2014
    I really like this photograph. You have amazing clarity in the hand considering it is taken through 2 layers of glass. I like the composition and the painterly colours and the droplets throughout. You have a great eye.
