    Hands say a lot about the person: age, affections, life experience (a.k.a. mileage), moods. If you want to size someone up, be sure to look at his/her hands. Get in close and share "hand"some revelations.:smile: (I hope this is as sappy as I get.)

    I'm thinking human hands; they can be real, live hands, or interpretations of hands. I am not thinking "paws" or "claws" (no, not talons either), unless you really want to try to convince me otherwise.

    PLEASE NOTE: All times re: ending for submission and voting are GMT.

    The challenge starts with the posting of this thread on Wednesday, July 29th, and will end at 23:59hrs GMT on Sunday, August 16th.

    Voting will be open from 0000 August 17th (GMT) until 23:59 Monday, August 24th (GMT).

    To check GMT, click here.

    All right, let's see your stuff! Create! (Ooh! Power rush.:biggrin:) 


    1. Every participant is allowed one picture per challenge.

    2. The picture has to be taken between the submission start and end date.
    This is to make it a "Challenge" and not just another "Best
    Picture Contest"

    3. The posted picture must remain unaltered, once posted.
    But the text of the participation may be edited/changed, as often as
    necessary (for possible exceptions contact the Challenge Leader)!

    4. Pictures may be processed/edited and worked on, in post production
    before submitting them, but the main picture/content must have been
    taken during the submission dates.

    5. Somewhat controversial pictures are permitted, but please use your
    judgment and keep it within reason. ( Note that this community should
    remain suitable for all age groups )

    6. If there are any questions or obscurities the Challenge Leader is the
    person to appeal and to decide.

    7. The actual Challenge Leader has the freedom to alter the rules,
    if reasonable (except Rule 5 perhaps). But he/she has to make sure the rules
    are clearly stated and applied to all submissions.

    8. Please try to keep the identity of the photographer/participant hidden
    (as long as the challenge is running, and voting isn't finished)
    So don't include the name or post the picture anywhere else on the cafe for the duration of the challenge! Don't use pictures, that where already shown/posted in the cafe before.

    9. Please feel free to give your picture a title, and even explain it a little!

    10. You must host the photo somewhere on the web. The photo is then entered via the "posting 'bot", using the URL where you have the photo hosted.

    the Voting Thread: in which the votes will be posted, best
    started when the submission time has ended. Again, only votes are allowed
    here. This Thread is posted by the Challenge Leader again.

    1. While voting, everyone is allowed 3 Votes:
    first place (counting 3 points),
    second place (counting 2 points) and
    third place (counting 1 point).
    Each entry can be voted for once! (either 1st, 2nd or 3rd),
    that is, each vote must be for a different entry, but no more than 3 entries can be voted for (the points can't be split across multiple entries).
    You may also say why you voted for the pictures you did.

    2. It is not necessary to have participated in the challenge,
    to give a vote. But if you did participate, don't vote for your own entry.:rolleyes: 

    And so you don't miss it...
