this is such an awesome idea! :) i would have never thought of this, and not only is the concept brilliant but the execution is great. the photo is crisp and looks SUPER professional. good job on that! :) i love the bubbles around the clock; they just look really cool and really add to the effect of the shot. the cropping is also very suitable for the shot. it's spot on. the only thing i would change is the little blurry bubbles in the left of the shot, but they're really not a big deal and the photo is still AWESOME.

:iconninjasqwirl:
This photo takes the term "still life" to a whole new level--which adds an interesting conceptual twist on its subject matter, a watch; in essence, time equals life--if time is "frozen", if we do not age, if our days do not progress, then we are not alive, correct? So conceptually I think this is a very interesting photo; it is straightforward and bold--time is [i]literally[/i] [b]frozen[/b]--which almost gives it a whimsical sort of sense of humor.

As for technical grace, I think it delivers in bounds; the shot is crisp and simple, just enough focus to capture that beautiful array of bubbles at the watch's edge, and just enough blur to keep the eye focuses on the subject matter. Additionally, the artist was able to capture a wide array of color inside a world that, at first glance, seems like it should be entirely devoid of it: there's the deep blue of the frozen water; the sharp gleams around the watch's edge; the dark edge itself, which I find to be the most interesting facet of the photo; and then, in a most pleasing contrast to the aforementioned dark edge, the perfect white of the watch's center.

While I feel that a more extreme crop, in which we see just a little bit less of the watch, so that our eye has to actively seek out the details, would make the picture a tad more interesting, it's really the only apparent flaw.

An interesting and though-provoking piece, for certain.

I...... I love it...... This is an extremely powerful piece. What you have done is shown an intricate concept and a complex stream of thought about time, life, and the fragility of anything we would have thought was permanent. Time changes everything. This is deep. It speaks to me and brings me a little into some fantasy world I may have once felt when I was a child. There's something primal and vague about it, and yet it's so starkly laconic. I'm not at all aware of the techniques and theories of photography, but this is absolutely beautiful to me, and I can't even fully describe why. It is vivid and surreal; ethereal and intensely sharp; rich with thought. Genius.

For a wonderful picture. You're welcome. Very rarely does a work of art move me enough to attempt an in depth reflection on the emotions evoked, but when one does, it is very strong. ^^

Time does stop. So icy and cold. The blue overtone just seals the feeling of this. I love the clarity and the detail of the ice on the lifeless watch face. :)

Truly amazing! This serie is better for every shot it contains :)

I have to disagree with ChazMoSaz, by saying that I like the blurry blubbles. Due to those, we focus more on the watch itself - that was the point, right?

And I'm curious, too.. How did you do it? Have you edited in some sort of program?

Great shot :)

The bubbles are all real and the watch and the water were physically touching. But yes, of course there is some post-processing in the photo.
