:iconhereticalnotionshots:
Very nice lighting in this shot which definitely serves to accentuate the brittle looking details of the subject and separates it from the background with harsh contrast, silhouetting its features and giving it a wondrously grim and melancholy feel.

The eyes also slowly move up the arm, taking in the textures and eventually ending up at the twisted fingers, which I feel (and was probably intended to be) is the focus of the entire shot.

The only thing I would perhaps have changed personally is left a bit more room above the fingers as they're almost touching the boundaries of the shot. Giving more room around above this would stop the eyes trailing off the picture and hold the attention on the hand. It would also enhance the already present feeling that the withered fingers are reaching up, and completely unable to grasp out at anything, which the title puts perfectly - 'Feeling Helplessness'

REally impressive.
Never seen it before.

Did you shoot it in Agrigento?
I'm Sicilian and often I went in the yester years to the Temple Valley. But I've never visited the museums.

Your gallery show so many talents!

ja,du hast mit deinen Kommentaren völlig recht,und ich sympathisiere offen mit deiner Meinung:
einmal Stärke demonstrieren in Bezug auf die Landtagswahl ,war völlig unnötig angesichts schrecklicher Bilder die da liefen und
dann die Millionen von Euro,die bei der Versteigerung des Bauprojekts auf dem Spiel standen und jetzt auch einkassiert werden möchten.
Jemand müsste auf legalem,zivilisiertem Wege dafür verantwortlich gemacht werden und die Medien mehr Druck mit dieser Geschichte machen (und nicht die x-te Wiederholung von Prozess Kachelmanns zeigen).

gute frage,Christiane.
weil die Hebel der Macht in unseren Händen nur aus Rhetorik bestehen?
weil Anteilnahme eine Gewohnheit ist und wir aus unkomplizierten Gewohnheiten bestehen?
was würdest Du denn machen?
