    Thanks for the comments.

aprilsole/ Glad you liked it. I'm afraid I didn't do anything special - no magic formula I'm afraid. I think the painting effect may be due to the shot being a bit noisy. I tried some noise reduction but it seemed to smear the hair a little more than I wanted so I left it alone. This was also a pretty severe crop from a larger shot (100% crop actually), as I couldn't get as close as I wanted and even at my max 4x zoom, I wasn't very close. I didn't have to downsize it at all to meet the contest size guidelines. Perhaps this resulted in the painting quality you see.

danielsonkin/ Guilty as charged I'm afraid :-) The face and particularly the eyes really catch ones attention. I tried to give the hands more emphasis by cropping pretty tight on the left and right but it only helped so much. Still, I liked this better than the more hands priority shots I came up with, so I went ahead and submitted it anyway. Glad you liked it in general.

Amberbug/ Glad you noticed the hands :-) Although the face and eyes are definitely a strong focus point, I thought the hands were strong enough to make this at least a semi- decent 'hands' entry. The visibility of the noise is mostly due to the pretty extreme crop, I think. I didn't think noise reduction improved it overall so I left it alone.

    Nice shot, a bit of 'noise' but you have to love that face and those HANDS, just jumps out at you, in my tt.

    I like this photo, but my eyes are drawn more to the face than the hands.

    This is sooo lovely~ it has the appearance of a panting on canvas. How did you achieve that look? In my TT~!
