Lost In the Light.

Photograph of Michelle Ingram's hand taken Oct. 30, 2014 at 9:00 p.m. at home. The photo represents impact because it's quite an unusual photo. I think it has a hidden message that could be interpreted differently by anybody. My lamp was the sole source of light and the rest of the room was dark, so I could capture a small lit area. The techinicalities are f/9.5, ISO-3200, no flash, 1/6 sec. exposure, 20 mm focal length, 3.625 max aperture.
