For me I feel that this picture is so rich and I love the subtlety of the words on the page. Look at that pocket watch though, everything on its face and cog gears is in absolute beautiful detail. It is glorious. I love the colour theme and how everything is a compliment to the main object, the watch. The blur is a nice effect and I like the shimmery orbs in the background, with a tiny bit on the chain were the gold caught the light. It makes me think of Christmas. I think I have seen a lot of photos of watches and clocks which is why I felt perhaps it isn't original as such, yet there is clearly a lot of thought put into trying to make this unique. Such as the colour scheme I mentioned and that he watch is on a book holding up one page. I also love the clarity of the Roman numerals on the face of the watch.
What do you think?

This is a stunning image! Firs thing that I felt when I saw this photograph was a warm happy sensation. The use of your lighting and, if this was edited, your editing work hard in hand to create this feeling. The way the book is open and the pocket watch is holding up some of the pages gives me the impression of some one checking the time and needing then to hurry off o do something leaving his book open for all that pass by. The blurring of this photo also works to you advantage making us focus on the pocket watch yet also shortly afterwards see where it is and what it's doing.
Again this is a splendid photograph and I commend you on a job well done! Sorry if this was confusing, it is my first time writing on of these. I hope it was helpful.

I like what you did with this.  The brightness and contrast make you squint and convey the power and beauty of time.  Wonder composition and I like the blurred pages that get written as time passes.  Bright and alive in the moment and blurred and faded as time marches on.  And the gold - indeed nothing is more valuable than time.
