Being a medievalist, I was excited to see that I got the pointed index finger right in this frame; it’s common in medieval iconography. It may symbolize speech or a call for attention, and is often used as an index mark (a so called manicula – see this excellent example) to bring the readers attention to a certain part of a text in a manuscript.
This is also my first attempt to manipulate a picture digitally. There was a third person between these fellows. It didn’t feel right, and I promise never to do it again. Maybe.
This was the original version:
