Challenge has finished
Camera shops often try to sell you compact cameras purely by the numbers - megapixels, zoom ratio, scene modes, screen size and so on. In this challenge, we want you to take pictures of numbers using a compact camera - the more related to your camera's specification the better (for instance, if your camera has a 10x zoom, the number 10 could be an appropriate subject). Think about composition, lighting, and colour, and include a caption to explain your image.

In this photo, I explored the relationship between fingers and numbers. Firstly, the term 'digit' in the English language could be numbers or fingers. Indeed it was believed that the commonly used decimal numeric system has its roots in our ten fingers, because early humans use them to count. It so happens that I was using the Canon G10 to take this photo, therefore it fits the requirement of this challenge that the numbers in the photo should be related to the PnS used to shoot it.

|Notes:||The fingers were taken without flash and a single source of light. The superimposed numbers in the fingers are taken from the financial section of the local newspaper. This was also taken with the Canon Powershot G10. So no dSLR was involved in this entire work. It illustrates the complexity of the numeric system that stems from the 10 digits.|
