A rather fun shot to create. I persuaded my neighbor's kids to have their hands painted, wasn't that difficult I must say. Pressing the shutter didn't prove to be challenging neither, what brought me to the predicament was however, to ask these obviously excited kids to pose the way I wanted. After more than an hour, I finally got this shot. Oh the background, as in many of my other conceptual shots was painted by me.
