Hi Tommy,

It's a "love-hate" shot for me!

It's a technically very strong shot! The setup attempt to shot the 2 face of the watch.
The focus and lighting is good.

I didn't like the shot for the "reflection" and the "messy" feel. From a product/ commercial point of view, it might not be very "usable"

I would love to see it shot on a white surface/ mirror - it might have a totally different feel.

On that note, without the reflection, I think it'll make a perfect product shot!

I don't know, it's almost too busy to me. Otherwise, the focus is nice. I see now, your trying to show both sides of the watch!

Interesting display and use of limited DOF. Reflection on left is a bit distracting.

well done...

Excellent perspective. You've shown me the front and back of this unique and challenging object to photograph. The uniqueness of the watch and composition causes me to stop and look closer. Highlights seem to be controlled to the top and bottom of the object and do not obstruct the detail.

Well done. I like the DOF control you've exhibited here. Interesting product too.

Good shot of the product and it's versatility, I like the idea and the sharpness is great.

Nice lighting
09/08/2008 05:35:41 PM
well how cool is that! i may need to find my daddy one of those...

Love it. If I was being picky I'd say I'm not mad about the background colour - bit dull, not much contrast. But the composition and DoF are fab. 8
09/08/2008 07:30:08 AM
a bit more DOF and some more light on the frontside would have made me give an 8 instead
09/08/2008 12:48:45 AM
Where have I seen this?
09/08/2008 12:37:17 AM
Beautifully done! I see this in the top 3
