Not feeluing this bro, a little flat and weird for me. Whats with the toning? I wish it had some ooommpph like yesterdays grin

Dotun Ayodeji: Thanks Suby.
Conveys the message. But a closer shot would have created some more drama.
Dotun Ayodeji: Thanks Anup, I like your idea.
I see what the others are saying about the PP but I like the message it conveys.
Dotun Ayodeji: Thanks Etomi.

Well for me, Dotun, I'm immediately drawn to the hands of all 3 and definitely feel the blessing! The rest is the context that can be "burned out" or whatever. It doesn't matter to me because that's not where the focus is.
Dotun Ayodeji: Thanks Ginnie.

I wish Suby could physically point out what he sees/don't see, because I miss it - totally. I see four hands joined in union and the blessing hand in motion. Your title alive. Words like excellent, fantastic comes to me. The preacher's leg/jacket or whatever, is a little intrusive in the background, but nothing serious.

A different mono tone/colour/filter - I am not sure that you will still have the exquisite details like her finger nails.

I am not trashing the man - just thinking how I am missing his point and I could have learnt from it. Ah well, I just must accept it.
Dotun Ayodeji: Thanks Louis, funny how people point of view differ atimes.

I like it as is, and I think I'd like a closer crop of the hands too.

That's nice.

I don't understand what Suby means either, but never mind. I wonder if it would work as well, or better, cropped in to the elbows, or thereabouts?
Nice fugitive moment !!
