I altered a simple clock by giving it a black face and a white second hand. The background is a piece of scrapbook paper. I tried a lot of backgrounds, but the water stands out and makes you scratch your head for a second.

The only editing was a bit of levels in Photoshop.

Hmm, I liked this one more than most voters I suppose, and I gave it an 8. I like the sweep of the second hand and the interesting background. It was a creative change from the water shots which dominated this challenge. I see this was your first challenge... good luck with future challenges! :)

Great idea, but you could have added some perspective to it.

I'm not sure that I get why it's on water, but the clock itself is pretty cool.

Not too crazy about the background. Also, might have been better if minute and hour hands pointed up instead of down.

This is an intersting image. It's simple, has nice lines and detail. I like that it's different the other night shots and things out there too.

I like that you captured the sweep of the second hand in this shot.
