This shot needs to be much better focussed and am unsure that the harsh transition from tool board to clock does the picture any favours. Keep at it!

Cute setup and title, but very low image quality and lighting.

Good idea but very out of focus. The white sides are also distracting. Maybe you are unfamiliar with the cropping and sending of files and that's why this happened.

Good idea but the focus is a little off though!
The light hitting the clock is a bit bright

Look at the time, better get focused. Too bad that one did not come out too good....but I have seen much worse. Good luck, next contest you will own : ) nice try.

A bit out of focus?
02/07/2004 05:25:48 PM
kinda blurry

Nice idea, the flash flattened the image, which is washed out and out of focus, another light source might help with this. The cropping doesn't help the composition.

The white border on sides take away from the subject. And I know I have taken many pictures with glares, I have gotten better by having other light sources so like glares on the clock wouldnt be there.

Photo is a little fuzzy and not quite straight, looks the the wrenches area leaning. Also the flash in the clock is a little distracting.

Out of focus. The glare on the clock is distracting.
02/06/2004 08:33:04 AM
This is out of focus and a very bad shot 1

Well, let's see. Focus isn't there, there are hot spots on the clock, the composition isn't terribly interesting, and I don't get why there's all that white space on either side.

wAy out of focus... and what's with the HUGE white side borders?
02/05/2004 01:36:24 PM
This doesn't quite look in focus to me... I think, that tools are supposed to be strong, hard things, so they should be pretty sharp. I can't quite tell whether this looks like it was a question of compression or something else. Also the lights glaring off of the clock are really quite bothersome. I don't care for the white border just on the two sides, I feel it detracts from the subject. I do like the repetition and the similar tools getting larger.

Glare on clock and low light levels hurt this shot.
02/04/2004 08:13:17 PM
Is this a scan?
02/04/2004 01:51:36 PM
You could have done this in a much better way if you had only spent some time with the lighting and a few more minor adjustments. You could have atleast focused on the wrenches.
02/04/2004 01:09:44 PM
out of focus, oversharpeded, too dark
02/04/2004 10:53:20 AM
Think I would have tried to reduce reflections on clock, gotten a better focus and straightened this image.

Bad lighting [glare on the clock] and bad focus makes this look more like a snapshot than anything. Next time set up a different light source and work more on focus, and you'll have a good shot on your hands.

Really I had only one word about it: Focus. It´s a good composition, the clock is disposable, but the three wrenchs are in good form to make a big shoot. A tip, is to try some points of view, and explore your light conditions. If the light is not good, your camera can´t do a great focus job, then try to use a tripod and manual focus.
