Thinking of all I had lost in the course of my life: times gone for ever, friends who'd disappeared.

Time is always in the front line, leaving everything out of focus and further away behind.

An element of life, which we choose to make the best of or the worst of. Everything that passes, cannot be undone. It is true that we have lost a lot in the course of our life, but what matters now is what we have right now, because time is always ticking.

Inspired by an opening line from the novel "Norwegian Wood" by the famous Japanese writer, Haruki Murakami.

*Hello from Sid and the Critique Club*

An image with potential whose title fits the challenge.

Given the nature of the challenge the title is as much a part of the viewers interpretation and therefore the end result as the image itself, taking both into account here I feel you have not made the most of the opportunity. I may be wrong but it just doesn't feel as though much thought or effort has gone into it.

I assume your crooked placement of the clock is deliberate though I'm not sure what if any relevance it has to the effect you were after. So, we have a crooked clock against an out of focus background of what? Clutter? Again I can't make the background contribute to the end result. The clock itself is poorly lit with harsh shadows some of which are obscuring parts of the face. I like that its in mono but thats a purely personal thing.

I think to give your title more meaning that I would have put the clock round to its correct position against a sufficiently focused background of an empty bed with ruffled pillows signifying the friend who has disappeared or something along those lines.

Sorry I couldn't be more positive but thanks for your submission, Sid

Shadows on the face are a tad bit distracting, although can see where it might be a nice effect.
