Nice sale at Alamy - and an absolutely great photo.

I loved this photo! 5.9 isn't a bad score -- but I sure thought it worthy of much more validation than that!

Your photos totally rock, Don!

Very nicely done - the lighting is wonderful. Your picture is really appealing and shows off the round shape of the watches.

Do you have more watches in your collection? Nice composition. (8)

Interesting idea, sharpness, DOF, and composition. The title prompts a closer look, only to discover that 4:45 clashes with the other watches and the chart - not a problem, I like it regardless.

My 10 for this challenge. I don't vote by "wow factor". Every body starts with a 5. I then deduct for out of focus, incorrect exposure, and distractions. I give a point each for presentation, creativity, lighting, and detail. I think this shot has all those good qualities. Good job.

This is clever, not your run-of-the-mill circles shot. (Is there a time zone that's fifteen minutes off from the rest? I know there are some on the half-hour...). Light and colors are good here -- I like the muted gray, black, and white with the metal watches.

Fun photo. But, I was expecting the clocks to be show the same number of minutes after different hours.

I really like this idea!

I like how you got the title to relate to the shapes most present in the composition - very clever. Now onto the composition. I like the presentation of the idea - very strong in set-up and composition. Lighting of the subjects is very good and details are crisp. One observation that may strengthen the connection of the watches to the circular time clocks seen on the chart would have been to sinc up the times to match what is seen. The gold watch reading 1 o'clock matches one of the clocks seen on the chart. The gold watch reading a quarter to five and the other reading 3 o'clock are not visible on that time chart below.

This is a really interesting picture, but to my eye the shapes of the watches aren't the most interesting aspect of the picture. The map is very interesting, too, and my eye goes more to the faces of the watches, not their shapes. It's a good picture, but IMHO, not for a shapes challenge.

to many still good

Nice idea, well executed.

Dang, why didn't you set these watches so they were correct for the time zones on which they are overlaid? Nice shot anyway, I like it :-)

Super crisp, super-unique... should I just say SUPER and get it over with? ;-) Good work!

(I wonder how you peeps react to these comments)
