I truly appreciate this image. Frail, yet strong - subtle, yet overwhelmingly clear. Great image. Thank you for sharing.

This is wonderful, Lynn! I have a thing for hands! I wish I had gotten a picture of my mother's hands before her accident 7 yrs ago. She is fine and alive, so I of course couldn't be happier, but I remember always playing with her hands as a child and I still can see them in my mind. She was burned about 60% of her body, mostly her hands and face so they don't look the same! Ok, so I know I am rambling, but this really touched me!!

This is fantastic, hands tell a story just as a face would. They look like very gentle motherly hands. Great job!

Lynn....this image brought tears to my eyes! This is EXACTLY what photography is all about. You have created a piece of art that is all about someone dear to you and that will always be cherished for years and years. This is just awesome! I'm truly impressed with your creativity and I'm loving this idea. Very well done!

I missed this somehow... What a wonderful keepsake... I too love my mom's hands.. And need to remember and get the camera out more often with her... Photographing the simple things end up the most important ones... Wonderful capture...

OH my goodness, I can't believe it !!! I am so excited about this. I have had a hard time with taking care of Mama this week and have been discouraged and depressed. I got up early this morning and had my prayer and devotion time asking for God's blessing on our day.

I then checked my e-mail and read the notification for second place and I just cried. Thank you all so much for your encourageing comments about this photo winning 2nd place. You all are so sweet, and a inspiration to me as photographers and mostly as friends.
Thank you, Thank you so much.
