Shot in a hurry when I couldn't find a sand "Timer" that I wanted to try to shoot, all my other ideas ran out of time as well... Yes the watch face is too soft, but I was already out of light and couldn't stop it down for more DOF.

I would've liked the watch more in focus.

im not crazy about your choice for DOF here. it's a little shallow for my liking.

Nice contrast of the brown gritty sand and the smoothe silver watch. Creamy bokeh on top is nice. Narrow DOF may be too narrow as very little of the watch is actually in focus.

nice picture, would be better IMO if the watch hands were sharper focus.

Good composition, but slightly oof. The watch face in focus would have made this a great entry.
