Actually I wanted to make a tree out of the hand, but after 10 unsuccessful tries, it developed more and more to this one.
I tried adding other thing (more flowers, animals and so on) but it just looked worse, so I decided to leave it as it is.
Comments are always welcome :)

Mike says:

excelent idea!! i really like it, just two nit picks, everything has great lighting except the sunflowers and seagull, which lighting doesn't match the rest. The other suggestion i have, is that the visual zone that atracts more in an image is the upper right quadrant, and right now it's totally empty, that somehow gives the feeling like something is missing, and that's accented by the fact that the four finger tips and the right side of the tree completes a rectangle, i suggest you to place the seagull in the mid space between the 2 middle finger tips and the top of image

I love the feel of this pic, author...you did a great job! (Just one small thing: if you flip the seagull it will match your light source). Good luck!

I like this pic, really great work, I too have a slight nitpik, it is about the blurred edge below the thumb, before the wrist. Should this area be blurred? My eye seems to go straight to it.

Thank you all very very much for your nice comments I flipped the bird, changed it's position and tried to work on the sunflowers. Thanks Mike and CMYK
@Richie: No, that shouldn't be blurred... seems like I was a little bit too enthusiastic with my eraser
@animmax: I don't know why it looks familiar to you, but I swear, that I didn't steal anything. Ask my mom... She was suffering for 2 hours, because I asked her all the time, what I can add

author says:

Thanks again for all your nice comments and favs
@animmax: I just wanted to make that clear I know, that you didn't meant it like that

avatar hymerion
hymerion says:

great entry - the idea is wonderful and the execution almost perfect... I have only few suggestions: if the hand is made by grass, shouldn't be the edges more fluffy? And the girl seams to have a slight shadow around her, and she cannot drop in reality that shadow unless the sky is a piece of paper... but, overall, it's a wonderful entry, good luck

nice image.... good job author

author says:

@Hymerion: Thank you for your suggestions I already tried to make the edges more fluffy, but it looked so bad and I wasn't satisfied with the result at all, so I decided to leave it this way. Concerning the girl: I'm not really sure what you mean, I don't see a shadow around her?!?

Nice outcome, author . I do think Hymerion has some good advices about the grass shape for the edges of the hand. It doesnt have to be all around, but what you can try is juuuuust use a bit of smudge tool to make a suggestion that there's more than a sharp edge. And I also see some kinda aureol around the girl, or at least on the right side. Doesnt have to be bad for the entry though . Good luck!
