17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images
Talk to the hand

This photo shows the concept of being your toughest critic. As humans beings we are the most harsh on our selves when it comes to working hard. I do not think anyone commonly thinks their doing the best they can, when in reality you are. we are our greatest enemies and with that we always continue to improve and become our better selves. For some of us though we hit a wall that we cant seem to get over, and we don't find the courage to leap the wall. In this picture the hand is the wall. It is simply up to the person behind the hand to choose to open up himself to the world.
