Hands are possibly the most expressive part of the body. They are definitely one of the hardest things to photograph well. Because we love challenges as much as we do...... The task this week is to post images of hands. I am looking for images in which the hand is either a/the focal point or an essential part in telling the story the image conveys.

The usual rules apply:

· The photographs must be your own work.

· Be creative and have fun.

· You may only submit one photo per contest.

· Please do not comment on photos until after the judging has taken place.

· The contest runs for one week, starting NOW!

· At the end of the week, The Judge (last week's Winner) will choose a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place photo, providing as much feedback as possible.

· If the Judge is unable to complete the selection within 48 hours of the deadline for close, then a vote will be carried out to select a winner. This will be based on the number of "likes" each image has. In the event of a draw, the second place winner from the previous week will choose the tiebreaker.

· The 1st place Winner will start a new thread with the topic/theme of their choice, and act as the Judge for that contest. (Winner has 48 hours to create new theme, after that it defers to 2nd place).

· Winners please update the Weekly Photo Contest Master thread

Doing the old switcharoo and inserting an image taken for this challenge. Great theme, which should allow for everybody to explore it!

Don’t try and palm it off with an apology.


You know I couldnt put my finger on it but yes, sorry... caught red handed there....

I am of course just deflecting as I don't have a worthy entry to hand.

Ok.... I will get me coat and shut the door on the way out.... :oops:

36 hours to go. That's plenty of time for the two of you to get something submitted. I promise not to judge you harshly on account of the taunting. Can you handle it?

Are you kidding me?!?! Have you seen the quality of the entries so far?!?! No chance I can get close to anything worthy of being next to this lot.

Amazing work everyone. Sorry for talking during the comp...
