While I find this image to be very attractive, I would like to offer 3 observations -
1.I would prefer to see it as a well-printed b&w image rather than color. The colors (to me) seem to be more distracting than beneficial.
2. I'm not so sure about the jewelry - it too, seems to distract from the beauty of the hands, and
3. I don't see these as "praying" hands, but rather as hands at rest.
Nonetheless, a very nice image with good composition.
