Im sure... this will eat dust... I guess a 4.5.

Thanks again Steve for the editing tips! Id die without your help!

complaints:

1.) my seconds are even: Cant help it that clocks old
2.) over done: its new for me, I made it my own.
3.) you can see the reflection of my camera, yeah I think it looked cool in the weird crop. Plastic reflects.... couldnt get it to go away.

I like it. thats whats important to me.

This is doing way better then I expected!!!

The texture is a funny story so I thought I would share....

The clock was a gift i received 4 years ago when I started school for education. I was told I could hand it in my future classroom. It is a cheap plastic clock. It has been sitting in my utility room for 4 years. We replace the batteries as needed but it never gets cleaned.

When I thought of this I decided to use this clock... I was going to clean it but the camera reflection was already bad and I knew if it was bright and shiny it would be super bad, so I left it dusty and just cleaned the rim.

After I took the picture I upped the contrast on this and lowered the brightness and converted to sepia. It left with me this texture, color, pattern effect that I really really liked!! So I kept it!

After voting:

I was really hoping for my first ribbon but I am very stoked with 4th place! A new PB! wahooo!!!

Well done Caree - Great shot.

I do think this is a nice shot but I almost gave it a 1. I really do not see how it meets the challenge of containing 7 of the main subject. I am really surprised to see this as a top 5 when it just doesn't seem to meet the challenge, good shot or not.

eta: I did actually give you a 10, I just thought this would have been hit with the dnmc voters. either way well done.

Not a member [yet...] so I can't vote. Instead I'm clicking through the images and commenting on those that make me stop and look. This is one of those images.

Clever idea for the theme. I like the way depiction of the slightly irregular distances between seconds. Probably not something one would notice without the long shutter technique.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/05/2010 12:35:49 PM
Nice -- I once did a similar shot for a five-second challenge, but you have a nicer clock!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/04/2010 10:04:02 PM
I love the picture, but I really wish the background was not so cluttered. It really draws your eye away from the wonderful tones and textures.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/04/2010 05:22:09 PM
Wow, great idea and shot!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/03/2010 08:07:27 PM
First off, I like this picture. Now...

Is that a reflection of your camera?
I'd like to see a little more on the left to see the whole number 12.
It is realy only six seconds (the space between the ticks).
Almost a little to much stuff in the background.

After all that, let me repeat; I like this picture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

interesting idea

I love that picture ! Just a brilliant idea and great realisation ! The only thing I can reproach is that we can see the camera in the clock...

Great take on the challenge!

Wow I love this one. Love the 'vintage feel' you've gave it. Not voting but would have been an 8.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/31/2010 07:06:31 AM
a feeling of 'déjà vu'... still a great idea
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/30/2010 04:05:23 PM
Very clever and well done. Wonderful processing. I love the contrast of the grunge on the face and the clean metal of the edge. Beautiful. Front page.

WONDERFUL! I love it all! (not voting)
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I like the idea - it's very well done. However it would have been even better if you had given some attention to the background.
