“A hand welcome” is the name of this photograph. This picture shows a grandmother welcoming her granddaughter to her home to help work on a quilt.
I tried to blur out the background with limited success.
I hope this photograph gives you a pleasant emotion because it is meant to convey I’m really glad to see you and I hope you can stay a while.
This photograph was cropped, Level adjusted, Gaussian blur to the background, Hands sharpened in lab color U. S. M. 100,2,1, And saved for the web .

Great composition, great idea and colours but the post processing is too obvious and it is diturbing (to me at least).

I like the shot, but the edges around their hands are pretty evident. You might try using the magic lasso tool and then feathering the edge of the resulting layer.

very nice feeling, and great note explaining circumstances, but it is true the post-processing is too evident and a bit disturbing, i don´t know how it can be done better because i´m new with photoshop
