This is nicely framed and the red background works because of the red tip of the second hand pointing in the direction of the background. I guess the texture of the background works too since the watch is somewhat weathered and not smooth.

Good title.

I like the composition and how clearly the dirt on the watch face is visible.

Excellent photo. The title gives the photo a hint of mystery - thought provoking. The quality is great. Effective cropping and composition. Excellent work!! 9

Fair composition for the theme, but the title makes up for much of it.

Nice variation on the classic watch picture. Good concept and framing.

Background doesn't help.

A moving title. It could mean lots of things and leads one to imagine what it does mean.

I like the way this is composed. Very good macro shot. Boy that thing is dirty, no wonder it gave up on living. I almost did a macro shot of a very old dead watch too. They make very good subjects.

Looks more like 12:12 to me.

you are off by a second

Like the clocks all stop when someone dies? or was the watch worn in a accident. Very nice The watch is great and the red tip on the second hand is striking, I think the texture of the red is distracting however

Really good. I wanted to do somthing like this. You did a great job.
08/05/2002 10:22:00 PM
Great title -- super shot! Nice DOF, too.

Something old. Use your photographic technique to emphasize the age of your subject.
Composition - quite good
Technical Aspects - quite good
Meets Challenge - I have a problem here. Looks like water stopped it, not age.
Visual Impact / Originality - ok

Good idea, however I think a little more indirect light would have made a big difference. In my opinion any way. Autool

I like the subject and the cropping of this picture. I am grateful that you didn't fall for the B&W cliché for this challenge. I belive the ticker is at 12:12...

This is an interesting perspective of an old watch... I think the off centering of the subject works very well here... I believe that the only improvement that I could suggest for this subject would be a smooth textured background. The background that you have is not bad, but a smooth background would possibly enhance the overall impact of the image by removing the 'texture' constrasts from the non-subject area of the photo... - jmsetzler

Background is distracting.
08/05/2002 01:38:00 PM
Cool image, cool title. Find the two colored backgrounds somewhat distracting.
08/05/2002 11:28:00 AM
I like it. I don't know about the red cloth, though...
08/05/2002 11:22:00 AM
I'm a macro fan, and I think the shot itself is well composed, well lit and technically up to the mark. OK, here it comes but it looks more dirty than old. I can't fault the picture, but I think it loses a bit in translation of the challenge (7)

exceedingly cool watch nice background and lighting

Looks more like 12:12 to me... Nice picture. I like the concept. Focus is good. Lighing is good. 7
