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.

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.
