Beautiful picture of the watch. Creative title but not so great on the shadow. Still nice effort.

Nicely shot, good detail. I like how this shot, unlike the other clock one, set it to a meaningful time.

Nice job but enough with the watches. lol (7)

Great photo, wish the shadows had been more prominent.

Very Funny, I was waiting for a person to come on the screen

i love the play on words. althought i'd probably try to light it so the shadow is more pronounced, that would create harsher reflections on the watch. a dillemma..

Ha Ha Ha Ha. Cool.

Very nice work! The 5 o'clock shadow concept here is definitely a good idea... I didn't even need to see the title of this shot to catch that :) The photo execution is GREAT and the composition is nice as well.. I'm looking at how you applied the rule of thirds with the clock... It's leaving a little blank space on the right side of the frame. I wonder if a little tighter crop would be better? I'm not sure... great shot! = 9

This is the one--great picture---exellent lighting!!!

Beautiful clock, and well photographed, good composition. Also like the title. For a shadow challenge, I wish the shadow was a little more pronounced. Still, I like the shot.

Clever, well shot!
06/17/2002 07:04:00 PM
haha....nice idea. Also like the composition, and the depth of field used.

Very nice photo. Yes there is a shadow but it seems so secondary to the subject.
06/17/2002 03:46:00 PM
O' my socks just flew across the room!! Love this, great job. ooooyour so clever.

Wonderful still. (stopped the motion of the second hand perfectly!) Less light sources or main light source further back would have made a more distinct shadow. Light flare at 10 O'Clock. I would have liked a cleaner reflection on the other side of the watch, between 2 and 3 (see the dark matter?) This shot reminds me of a previous winner, but it was a super clean set up, probably in a studio. Seems like I picked on this quite a bit, but I really like it. Keep up the good work!

Very crisp macro shot. I love pocket watches, and your presentation of this one is excellent. Nice clean background and a very simple and tasteful arrangement. However, I see two shadows and neither is well defined, otherwise a very nice photo.

Very good photo, but the shadow it pretty weak.
06/17/2002 12:21:00 PM
creative idea. i would have liked an even stonger shadow being cast off of the subject. but nicely done.
06/17/2002 11:00:00 AM
love the good focus and sharpness
06/17/2002 10:20:00 AM
wow. great photo! seems like a little lighting from the front may have improved it.
06/17/2002 01:28:00 AM
Nice product shot. I think there should have been a little more DOF in front of the clock face. The blured cover is a little distracting. To me, the shadow isn't as much a design element as it is something that just happened.
06/17/2002 01:09:00 AM
Good execution, and I love the title.
06/17/2002 12:25:00 AM
Cleaver idea, personally getting tired of the studio watch shots. I give you an 8 anyway.
