Hmmmmmmm...........................



Well, I can see where are you coming from.
But to start off, I didnt quite like the picture.
Perhaps the title "soft" and the picture is a little bit deliberate, and quite meaningless from how I look at it. Well, you did get your point there, it does look soft.

And are those your hands ? The image makes it look broken and ultra long ....

Hey, take my comments with a pinch of salt alright. I thought I'll be honest with ya... because I know prefer it that way.

Cheers :thumbsup:

No problem! I definitely prefer honest comments ;) Those are my friend's hands btw. Pianist, so they're rather long. :)

For me, the picture and the title did not work. From the gesture of the hand, it seems like it's pressing down vertically against the matress/blanket/fabric. In this kind of posture you generally associate with firmness rather than softness, especially since the mattress is visibly sunken down due to the hand.


2 cents. :)

My 2 cents:

The first shot in Blue did not work for me...too strong with the title. The hand seems to be applying pressure...does not put across the "soft" feeling to me :)

Can try a straightened wrist from an aged person, resting on the comfy bedsheet. Lots of texture but hmm.. must find old ppl. :p

But seriously, why would u wanna take such a picture in the first place. In the end, you wont keep it and ultimately it has no meaning. Hmm.... move ON!

I agree. No matter what you do to the picture, the angle of wrist is just not right. I can imagine the person sitting on the mattress, leaning and supported by the hands. "Lean" might be a better title. Also, too much mattress in the lower half--my attention is drawn to it rather than the hand.

Just my 2 cents.
