This picture is one of the very few that can pull off a soft focus shot. This is a very effective shot. Despite the focus being a little shot there is a lot of detail involved. The angle is good. The choice of this tone was a very sound one. The only thing about this shot that I don't like is that bit of the hinge and lid showing on the right side. I know it's supposed to be there but I have this feeling of interruption by it. I think you should've shown more, or none of it. Its an excellent shot. I initially gave it a 7, but I'm going to change that to an 8. If you don't like it, PM me and I'll change it back. - Inspzil

Excellent. I find myself studying all the little cogs and wheels. Nice and sharp right down to the words and serial number on the edge!

This looks like a picture of a picture. No Depth of Field that I can see indiciating a lower score from me.

Nice composition and sepia effect. All the curves are appealing. Focus is good but just a little soft. Meets the challenge creatively. Consider side lighting to highlight the 3 dimensions. Good luck in the challenge! 7 Grayce

Great focus, good subject

Intresting. Nee more focus.

Great old watch. Does it still run. I collect old watches. I try to get them all running. My famorite ones are the self winding or "automatic" ones. The next are any with "sweep" second hands. I love the color. Wish the crop wasn't so tight, good focus, and good subject. Great for challenge. Good job. PTL

I don't really know if I like the sepis look to this photo, but I would have to see the original to know for sure. Good job with the lighting and having little to no glare.

did you use sepia? the pic looks nice and old-timey... just like the watch... good work..

I guess beauty really is in the eye of the beholder and unfortunately I don't see much to interest me in this poto.

I was shoot something similar, with gears and stuff, but i didnt get a chance. Nice composition, lighting and colors. a bit out of focus.

i wish it was more in focus. has great detail potential
11/18/2002 01:08:00 PM
Nice details. I wonder if this would have been better in color?

Great photo ! A touch more clarity would help make it perfect.

I like the way the picture looks 'old'. Not sure about the framing though.
