    Hi friends,
thank you very much for your votes and nice comments!
I'm very happy that so many of the Panachallenge Members share my humor and also allow a voting on a gut level (emotional impression over technical perfection).

    Congrats Franz!
This was best for me as well...at least I have never seen this idea.
BW balans is lit strange(finger), left-top-corner empty...but not too bad.

    Congrats on first place!

(Franz, Edward48, the snail is not a she! Can't you see he has those.... And the eyes and that demure smile on that finger; obviously female!)

    Hi all, thanks a lot for your comments.
Jade O - you're right with the competing colors, but I didn't want to do too much PP (you know why...). Also my finger has almost the color of a carrot (and looks like ;-) ), but I refused to correct that too. And finally I don't know how to, without getting a 'bleached' effect.
Lo - Thank you very much!
rafinmelb - the snail was coming out of her house in this scene. I didn't touch her eye to get an effect for the shooting. Actually she touched my finger and explored it a few moments after this. This picture was not meant to be too serious...
Leaving a bit sky in the crop preserved more spatial pattern and brought light to the shot (imho).
Edward - LOL!

    A cute idea. I just hope she didn't have her heart broken post shot.
Nicely done.

    technically very good. Top left is a little bit of a bother. The 'forced' interaction though left me cold.

    This is such a wonderful photo in so many ways - the clarity the colour, and the humour. My #1

    Great colour, idea and composition though I would have toned down the background a bit as the vibrant green is competing with the subject.

    Not only she was acting like a pro: she is a real beauty!

This picture made me smile.

Good luck with it !
