A beautiful watch but the glare is distracting.

Watch your framing ... you cut off the top of the watch, plus your light source is a bit hot on the upper right.

Your flash created a hot spot in teh upper right hand cornere. Perhaps a stnad, tripod, or something and a longer shutter speed would have helped here.

good detail, but a little bright on the right side
04/10/2002 06:21:00 PM
nothing special

Other than the watch case, there really are hardly any obvious curves here. You've managed to avoid reflections to a great degree, but the lighting is still too directional for such a finely detailed subject -- try more indirect lighting for this, IMHO.

Soft focus and blown out hilights take a a lot away from this. Did you sharpen it? It's also cropped more on the top than on the bottom.

What a great watch!
04/09/2002 01:09:00 PM
Interesting. Clever idea.

Would have looked nicer centerred I think. Lighting is a bit harsh, but is necessary to make the watch shine. Overally a good photo.

great watch, focus is hard for macros. i would have focussed a little better.
04/09/2002 07:28:00 AM
nice idea. i would've preferred a uniformly dark background, though. the patch of white in the upper right doesn't work for me.
04/09/2002 07:24:00 AM
Nice, would have like to see it even closer with less background area.
04/08/2002 04:30:00 PM
nice closeup - soft focus?
04/08/2002 04:27:00 PM
To much light. Maybe if you shut the flash off and had the watch in a well lit room, the light would have been more evenly distributed on the watch. I like your idea. :)

Flash flare just ruins it.
04/08/2002 03:23:00 PM
If the light more central, the detail would appear more balanced.

This is very similar to another photo in the challenge. I like the subject but this photo has the same distracting feature as the other one like it... the glare is a little rough....
04/08/2002 09:53:00 AM
Need to work on the focus/ sharpness
04/08/2002 08:50:00 AM
somewhat blurry. lackluster composition.
04/08/2002 12:28:00 AM
A better surface/backdrop for the watch would make this much nicer.
