This image was very much inspired by John Setzler's image Quittin' Time that he used for the Transitions Challenge. I hope he doesn't mind being copied; you know what they say about learning starting by copying what you admire.

Post-processing consisted of square cropping, rotation, cloned out some small dust specks, levels to increase contrast, white balance correction, selective contrast to enhance visibility of the seconds hand.

Sorry for all the dust and scratches; I didn't manage to get rid of it all, my study isn't really clean :-( and I noticed the remainder only at the moment when I didn't have any more time to retry (busy weekend...). And apart from the scratches, avoiding reflections was TOUGH on this one, hence the very tight crop...

I wish it weren't cropped so tight on the top and bottom, but this is a beautiful shot.

The effect is great. The picture is a little wasted out on the right hand side however. Almost a ten.
