I love clocks and watches, and I instantly fell in love with this piece.

I enjoy the fact that the focus is only on the upper characters, and the 5 6 7 8 9 are unreadable. The broken chain is another part to this amazing photo.

I think the background is lacking just a bit, and the top and bottom should be just a little darker to give the negative space some attention.
The hands of the clock should be in the photograph's focus. The dial and the 12 seem to be the focus, which is outstanding in of itself.

All in all, a beautifully crafted photo, but the negative space seems to be lacking just a bit.
What do you think?

This is a beautiful piece of art work. I disagree with the fact that there is unused space. To me, the bottom of the picture is the only way you can tell that the watch is broken. I looked at it several ways myself and finally decided that I would not have known the watch had been broken. I think the watch has stopped on the time. It is a beautiful old watch that has been ripped from someone's hand or has been found in someone's old box in their closet. I love this work. Thank you for sharing it with us.

I love the way this is focused. I would prefer to be able to see more of the face of the watch, but otherwise this shot is amazing.

The is really amazing. I love how you used an old pcket watch and put in a lot of gold but had different types or shades of the gold so that its not constant or too much. This really cool.
