adjusting to get rid of the overall blue tinge would improve this and turning the watch to face the camera would help too. I like the vintage look to the image though. I collect vintage linens so it has natural appeal to me.

very nicely done

nice....combination of textures and a good composition and an interesting story. I think a more interesting title would add to the picture.

This is a bit too dark. (I found you in the watch reflection!) The chain needs alot more light to show it off. Multiple textures well displayed. Good focus and focal range. Nice angle of attack. I'm sure you got at least one comment about the watch not being square with the frame, who cares! I like that part fine. I just realized the stem of this watch is at 3:00, not 12:00, as my pocket watch is.
If this shot weren't so dark, I think I could have gone as high as 9, all other things equal, but as submitted I have to top out at 7 (started as a 6, please feel good!)

Very classy, but I would like to see a little more clarity on the chain. 9 nards656

The blue cast in this photo makes it look as though it was taken either early in the morning or late in the evening. Gives a very nice mood to the photo.

Good pic. Really like the lighting and contrast.

nice still life composition.
07/25/2002 09:04:00 PM
Needs greater depth of field.

Although this is a nice photo, the subject seems to be "Watch" rather than texture.

Interesting picture, but to me, doesn't seem really representative of texture.

Technical Aspects6
Meets Challenge7
Total Score7

For those that are just learning, like me.

Composition: Scoring in this area is based on basic composition of a picture and includes the rule of thirds, balance, cropping, and curved and diagonal lines. Subject matter that does not lend itself to the picture or otherwise unwanted is also considered here.

Originality: Scoring in this area is based on pictures or concepts that I have seen, as well as how much effort you have invested in the picture. Usually a little something that sets it aside from a snapshot. Does it make me want to come back for another look? You know things like that.

Technical Aspects: Focus, exposure, lighting, and other special effects (done by the camera), and post processing are all considered in this category.

Meets Challenge: This is based on my interpretation of if you, have/have not, met the challenge. This is fairly simple but quite important for this site.

There are many sites that can give you assistance in achieving better skills in photography, but I think the best way to learn is to take pictures and show them to other people. Believe me when it is a good one you will know it.

Good luck!

I like the linen but I dont' think the watch adds much to the shot. I would have scored higher without it. = 4

I like how you have set this picture up, and the contrasting elements you have used. Don't know if it was intentional or not, but it seems like it has a bluish tint to me.

In Focus - 6, Lighting - 6, Color Levels - 5, DOF - 5 , Interesting Composition - 5, Interesting Subject - 3 >>> Tech Scores = 6, Subject Scores = 4, Final Score = 5, RLS

Nice photo. You might be carefull about setting the white point on the watch face (unless it is a light blue). Good job of reducing the specular reflections on the watch case.
07/23/2002 02:27:00 PM
Needs more light

To me it seems like the whitebalance is a little off on this shot. There seems to be a lot of blue in the image
07/22/2002 06:05:00 PM
this works much better if adjusted so the watch face is white and the whole thing is then converted to greyscale. I tried it cropped down a bit also and ended up with quite a nice image. Oh and the time is wrong as well.

I think the lighting here is a bit weak.. i would love to see it a ittle brighter and a little whiter. The watch being upside down confuses me a little as well... = 5 - jmsetzler

Nice shot, and the coloring is very soft and pretty, I like it.
07/22/2002 03:29:00 AM
nice textures, and I like the placement of the watch within the pattern. I also like how you didn't just shoot the fabric by itself. major points for that.

I really like this picture!
