I took this shot a while back and as a whole I like it. However the original's color and lighting were dreadful. I have attempted to doctor it up. I still don't know how I feel about it though. I am just not satisfied. Let me know what you think.

It would help to know what your intention or vision for this image is. Technically it's acceptable, although I'm not really keen on all of the reflections I see. As well, there's a bright spot above the 12.00 position which is very distracting, and the bracelet, image right is fighting wtih the dial for attention.

I'm not crazy about this shot Disrupt. It's not sharp, to my eye the angle is weirdish and most of the image lacks contrast. I think your instinct of not being satisfied is accurate. Not all images are worth saving, and if there is a problem in colour often the problem lingers when we convert to B/w.

also what is that mirrored writing (canon) at the top mid-right?

what was your intent here?

I think my real problem here is that I just loved this watch. The shot I took was crap and I just want to to work because I liked the watch. I was at an event and a gentlemen placed it in front of me on a table for whatever reason it was a one time shot. The only lighting was from a few very yellow outdoor bulbs, the ones that are designed not to attract incests. Witch made the shot extremely flat. My only thought was I wonder if I can capture the second hand because I was taking long exposures anyway. I have trashed it several times and just keep remembering it.

Thanks for your feedback and some more encouragement to trash it. :)
