    Thanks for the comment on my shot. I am not sure it is so much a gift as it is having been there and done it before. As for yours, there are some things that time does not heal so much as deaden. Paying tribute is certainly an important way to both deal with the present and smooth the future. No way of knowing how personal this was for you, but you have my good thoughts.

    Thanks for all your votes and comments. This one was personal.

And Michael, it's true it's been a little touch and go....

    Congrats. I wondered if this was yours from the start. Well done! With all this up and down in your standings it must feel like doing circuits :-)

    I like the lighting on the hands much more as that on the other picture showing levitating hands in the dark.
Is the black background a layer or was it on the hands shot?
The extra-info makes me sorrow-stricken.

    This is such a good idea for a photograph. An excellent photograph and a fitting tribute.

    What a wonderful tribute to those who have suffered so much. The lighting is perfect and the sentiment is beautifully expressed. Our hearts go out to them.

    Very moving image. My preference would be to have the frame closer, just slipping out of the hands. Lighting is perfect. I can sincerely echo your sentiments. Well done.

    touching photo. I'd clone out the reflections in the glass of the photo within

    Amazing shot, unfortunately a very sad inspiration.

    Very touching and moving. The lighting of the right hand especially is just excellent and the composition is really good.

    I love the light on the hands, and you have chosen a really interesting composition. The 'floating' picture is the element that does not work for me - my mind expects to see some background, some depth, some object it is resting on, as otherwise it feels unnatural. However I realise that you may have wanted that effect, and that this is a photo that has an emotional content.

    A little unearthly and disembodied looking, but still interesting. I sense the longing to touch the loved ones lost.

    Nice lighting and interpretation. May I know who are in the picture frame?

    I very much like this idea. I would prefer the composition without the framed photograph.
