For this challenge I wanted to find a way to represent the mechanism of the clock that belonged to my parents. Luck wanted the sun to be on my side. By depositing the clock on a table to find an angle of shooting, the sun has projected on the wall the silhouette of the internal mechanics of the clock. I took advantage of this situation to create this composition.

I look forward to hearing from you

Hello from the critique club

An appealing image that contributes well to the challenge

I admire your creative approach to the challenge Marcel. The composition works well with the emphasis on the clock’s lovely shadow, this is a very effective way to show the inner workings of the clock. The inclusion of the clock face works well and gives meaning to the shadow, I just wonder if your aperture was just a little too wide, perhaps a little more definition in the clock face would have given it a more instant appeal, especially here at DPC where there may be a tendency not to linger too long. A very appealing image, well done Marcel.
