Hand of what?

A  very very late one. Well I was too tired last night after a long day with Tosin, trying to pitch for some investment into ScentOlive. Tosin was amazing in her pitch to some of the original members of the Dragons Den such as Mike Clare (Dreams Plc), Brent Hoberman (Lastminute.com), Chris Gorman (The Gadget Shop and a few others) and Simon Woodroffe (Yo! Sushi).

Anyway it was an exhausting day and as a result this image is coming up late.

Hope it went successful bro. Me want to see more of ScentOlive on the shelves of all shops.

To the image, Love the details in the hand, don't think you pulled off the shadow though, way too bright on the left of the shot.

It's all about the light in this shot, nice idea, but the light is not framatic enough to pull this shot off. Top marks for the idea though
Its a lovely use of light as the subject instead of it normal supporting role.

Excellent!! Even the shadow on its own would make a wonderful image.
Is he reading his own palm? Very nice pic Jide. I am, however, inclined to agree with 1 or 2 of the others re: the bright highlight in the shadow, still you were tired and therefore forgiven!! Regards, Neil.

This is pretty cool. It's a bit creepy with the shadows, appropriate for this time of year.
