Something about this I like but the DOF/focus needs to be sharper across the whole image.

Superb b&w shot. Light reflections and shadows on the hand and the watch gives incredible interest to the shot. The great contrast in the background help to make the subject pop out of the picture. The great focus gives a clear view of the fingerprints off the fingers.
The vivid lighting on the watch really shows the details in the watch.

Fantastic, superb use of light and shadow, here creating a 'noir' look. Use of blinds and an old pocket watch, along with high contrast and much sharpness have worked well in creating this feel. Brilliant composition. My only criticism is that you need a model with better looking fingernails. 10

I really like this shot. I like the reflections, use of b&w, composition, lighting.... nicely done! I wonder what a solid background might have done for this shot (either black or white). Now I'm being picky :-)

Life is all about time, unfortunately. We spend our days working... our nights sleeping... (most of the time) and the few hours that we have left, we try to have some 'quality' time alone or with ones we love. The time displayed on your watch here and the dark mood of the photo reminds me that time is short... We are approacing the 'eleventh hour' :) Excellent work... nice storytelling too... I hope my interpretation is similar in some way to your own :) = 10

Great dof in such tricky lighting! I don't like the title so much, but it doesn't matter.

Lots of meaning in such a small spot - the light through the blinds, the time on the watch. Nice focus, texture in the hand - the skin the mails. Very neat, well done.

Very nice!! The whole picture really 'grabs' the eye. The shadows are just awesome and I love how it blends in with the background. The watch with the hand clutching it tells me that 'time is precious' in other words - clench onto life. Clarity and the closeness of your photo is very pleasing and clear to see. Your photograph is just brilliant. GL in this weeks challenge.
