I like this idea. Too bad the face of the watch didn't "glow" a little more.

Good intention, but needed to be brighter to work as an advert

The dramatic lighting falls just a little short but the composition is just great. Bumping up.

Over all a little dark I think

Oh to have had just a little more in focus....
I really like the composition and lay-out here, and espcially like the color.
Well chosen title too. (6)

Superb coloring and layout.

I love the lo-key idea, although I do think that with the 'night' look you should have increased the dof to get all of the detail in watch face clearly focused - hope you do well :)

Great shot. like the blue tint a lot. seems to highlight the complexity of the watch face without it being too intimidating. great dof. 10

Good composition/angle. Return for more comments: I like the shadow/lighting approach. A little, little bit more bright to reveal more details would have been nice. Also, you should have use a deeper DOF to have the 6 o'clock portion of the watch in focus a bit more. Bumping up.

may be a tad dark, the dof is a little shallow
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Love the angle. Very good detail in the image. I gave it an 8.

Very nice with the blue color cast. This works well with the black and white on the watch. Great use of lighting and the DOF is right on with it fading from bottom to the top third. This should score high, but I think not having text will keep it out of the top three. I know text isn't required, but you know DPC voters...

Truely looks like an advertisement

maybe a little too close although I do like the tones
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/25/2005 02:02:06 AM
Nice shot, but would like to have seen the whole face of the watch in focus.
