    This is really weird, Rob. But isn't it just a photographical representation of a small part of the fractal Handelbrot Set?

    You're right. I totally missed the four on the hands of the fingers of the hand on the pinkie... finger... I think maybe.

    I agree with Richard. The shadows are very convincing. Howdyoudothat?

    Thanks for the interest in this image.
    The shadow effect is surprisingly simple to do.

    Select the hand and remove the background to transparent
    Copy to a new layer
    Goto new layer
    Select the hand and feather the edge to suit
    Make silhouette of the selection Black on transparent
    The trick is to rotate the shadow (anti-clockwise in this case) - this makes it appear 3D.
    Stick the layer behind the hand
    Make a final background colour layer - any colour you like.
    Reduce the opacity of the "shadow" layer until it looks real

    Hope that all makes sense!
