I was playing around in my freetime with some attempts at doing some concept photography. Let me know what you think.

I think lightening the globe would help, too. Dustin is right about the background. The eye is drawn to the brighter areas, away from the whole point of the photo. The composition is nice - enough hand to know what it is, but not too busy.

i like the pic it has great detail and a sense of power, holding the world in your hands. maybe clouds as a backdrop would make the eye focus on the object? not sure great idea though

Nice job...I hadn't thought about the whole space concept...Syd's edit may even make a cool print. thanks for the ideas.

Syd's edit would definitely make a cool print... i like the concept, too... i wonder, though, what it would look like with the globe balanced on the tips of thumb and fingers, rather than cradled deep in the palm of the hand...

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"either way, i like the idea, and the space background really makes it...

I understand where you're comming from about the world held by the tips of fingers and thumb, but I think it looks safer cradled deep in that hand.
