This is a picture that I had in my head since several days, so this is the result.
I'm not very good with Photoshop, I took 2 hours to edit and delete the son fishing (poor me :ashamed:). I'm a little bit sceptic about the focus. Your opinion? :?
I use :iconlieveheersbeestje:'s action.

The colours are very soothing and the editing done beautifully. The dots, for lack of a better name, give the feeling that there are plenty more clocks in the distance. I'd like to think that these are a part of the outlier group. The dots could also be snow falling, because of the wintery colour palette... And the way the clocks hang reminds me of in Harry Potter, Book One, when they're in the room full of assorted keys that are flying around... It's quite magical. I also like that they're silver and gold, most people only use one colour for pictures of various watches.
I can't rate properly off mobile, so for vision it is supposed to be five.
What do you think?

Thank you, glad you like it :huggle:
I spent some time, but I'm really not very good with photoshop, this explains it!

The focus to me is perfect. You can't really focus which makes you focus on the whole piee not just one spot. I do agree that the dots in the back could be more clocks or snow falling. Either way it adds a great effect and really makes the focused watches stand out. Usng ifferent types of watches with different colors is very different. Gives the feeling that time is slipping away. Gret shot.

i really love the concept and the composition, but I think it would have look better if all the watches were focused because you miss a lot of their details (sorry about the english)
Retaediamrem Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
No problem, I regret the focus too, the watches lacks of sharpness. I don't turn all the watches in front of me because I want an irregular effect, you see what I mean? And no prob about your english, mine is bad too! ^^;

This is beautiful. Personally, I really like the focus. I think my only critique would be about the blank watch that isn't facing forward. The ones with patterns on their backs work great, but because that one doesn't have one, it sort of draws the eye as a big blank spot.

But I only noticed that after staring in awe at the image for about a minute. So it's still amazing.

I simply must show this to my sister. She loves pocketwatches.
