This photo was taken using only incoming daylight. Only processing done was auto level, auto color, minimal unsharp mask and crop/resize. The background is a Leonardo Da Vinci drawing from the Da Vinci Code book I just finished. I thought it add support to the theme without adding to must distraction from the main subject.

Crisp, clean and with good composition...one of the better watch shots so far.

almost there. Watch could be rotated clockwise maybe 15-20 degrees. Lighting a little blocked up, losing shadow detail in subject. exactly half the image is the antique diagram, so it's sort of static. The rotation of the watch woudl have helped this. These sorts of shots are devilishly difficult to light.
