think i'd have paid closer attention to the nails at this sort of closeness. i mean...a fresh coat of paint and perhaps some filing is in order.

author says:

I was trying to create a stronger contrast between the fingernail and the skin. The skin is by nature very smooth and nice looking, so you cannot really change that. Therefore, it's easier to make the nail to look more "out of it" than the skin, which is why I chose not to have the nails done to the best they could be.

I actually think the rough edge works very well in this shot. Nice capture

jadedink says:

I know what you mean author, but to me its distracting from the skin which is the focus of the picture. Perhaps its my own peeve, and no one else is distracted by the nail, unfortunately for me my eye keeps looking at the nail. :P

I kind of agree with jadedink... it's very nice focus and lighting etc. ... but the nail is kind of freakin' me out
