* Greetings from the Critique Club *

Hi Noud. Funnily enough, I did something very similar to this as an example for a camera conference I went to a few years back. I figured it was always a good way to show an exposure longer than a second.

I really like this photo but it appears some of the voters didn't share my view. I suppose what probably let the photo down more than anything here is really just the subject which maybe a lot of people didn't really relate to too much.

I like the lighting you've used. I would of maybe preferred to have seen it slightly brighter as it's a really nice subject you've used. SHOW IT OFF!! The graduation from dark to light works well for me. I'm finding that the focus looks softer at the top than at the bottom and perhaps it's that graduation that doesn't help here with that?

The last thing I'd like to say here is that I think the crop you've used is very nice. Brings you right into the action of the second hand.

Well done on your effort and best of luck in future challenges. You have some nice photos in your portfolio!

This would have done better if your lighting were uniform across the entire picture.

Another second hand, better than most but still not very exciting.

from a quick look at all of the entries, it seems like a dozen photographers came up with this idea, this was one of the good ones, lovely composition, I hope you do well
