I really love this photo because I wanted this image to show emotion and i believe the best way to show emotion is not only through facial expression, but through hand gestures as well. the position of the subject's hands in the photo shows a lot about the emotion of the photo i wanted to give off. for example, if you were to erase the subject's face and just have a blank face with hands on the side of the cheeks, you could still tell what emotion it is, such as being surprised or being sad looking like your saying "oh nooo". This also helps a lot when I'm painting, when i cant quite get the facial expression correct, i can show the emotion through hand gestures, and i believe that that is important to a photographer as well, to add more emotion to the image.
