    Congrats, this was my top pick. Wonderfully dramatic image with great PP. I initially had to count the fingers because it looked like there were more than 10!

    Thanks for all the nice comments everyone, my first, first placing on this site.
Not bad for a challenge I originally had no interest in entering.

    I like the image that you have taken, the central position, the straight-on angle. It's very powerful. I think the finishing is a bit overdone, and detracts from an otherwise impressive photo

    Too dark for my taste.

    I rather like this especially the high contrast.

    Nicely lit. I also like that it has a soft glow about it. My top 3.

    Interesting effects, but for me the lighting and contrast make the shot.

    Wonderful. A strong contender. (Actually, my #1!!) Perfect processing and choice for B&W.

    The stacked post-processing comments should tell me whose entry this is but without sleuthing, I'll simply say you've done a nice job. Simple and unadorned but well presented. I like the dark background detail (rather than pure black) but I'd darken the light patch to the lower left of the hands a touch to force that detail more into the background. High in my votes.

    a strong study of a pair of hands reminding me of some of the soviet coal miner pictures of the 1950's
spoilt by the light shape on the bottom left.

    I am not sure about the glam glow, but the pose , focus and composition are all strong.
