Another contribution to the hunt with this "eye catcher" :-)) Same setup as before but a different hand position to fit in the eye...in fact this is the new version of the picture i've posted a few days back with the eye , but that one wasn't to sharp and the compo was different,again a hand on a fleece background and my daughters eye..

have a nice day !!

Oh wow, terrific! Your lights and exposure settings were perfect to take the hand and keep the background black (or it's a Photoshop work?). You did a very great job with the eye, that's just an amazing picture!

This one is my favourite. Stunning in all ways. Well done.

Very creative! I love this sort of photo manipulation -- what fun! That old saying 'a photograph never lies' is no longer true, but enough of that mystique still remains to give these sort of illusions a sense of validation that is missing with drawings or paintings of similar subject matter.

Another very nice and surreal pp work,Leon! Beautiful light! A very interesting work of art! Tfs! Michel

The eye is well intégrate! I like the effect...
Look it will prepare to catch. But beware... You miss it and you put your finger in your eye! :)
A cool one!

What a "catchy" picture, Leon ;o). As I said before, you're the eye-master on TL. Nice idea to blend the eye in with the hand. Another idea would be to shoot the hand from the side, while it reaches out to catch a hovering eye...
Excellent concentration on the subject by using the fleece... I too find them quite handy in studio shots.
A beautiful contribution to the hunt!

Another macabre masterpiece Leon. Excellent PP work, great focus and all so sharp. TFS
PS Many thanks for your comment on Alone
Foggy it had been Leon. The cloud in the background is actually a bank of fog.

It's a bit creepy but I think you did a really good job on this. The eye is very clear and looks like it belongs where it is.

Hi Leon,
that's the perfect idea - I love it - so creative and excellent quality.
I'm thinking about my contibution - the last one that is missing - but I don't have a good idea ;-(
Thanks for sharing, wonderful

I think your creative shot, is spot on with the Hunt theme. Your imagination came up with an original idea very well realized. Excellent colors and sharpness and the PP is fantastic.

Hi Leon

I like the bizarre, surrealistic, appearance, of the hand & eye. Good pp work, with excellent color & sharpness.

Great PP
nice one
wierd effect
like it

Very arresting image! Shiver me timbers, sends a chill down my spine. Great impact. What would have added more to the image would perhaps be if the eye was 'looking' in the same direction as the hand's movement.

Terrific.....WOW !
Excellent experimental work. I like the clean black bg.
Travail très créatif.
Une idée folle.
Bravo !
