2 Seconds in February

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
BetterPhoto.com Photo of the Day  
2 Seconds in February
2 Seconds in February
EF100mm, f/8, 2.5 seconds, -2/3ev, ISO100, RAW, tripod, light tent.
Back in '05 in my first month of photography (using a Sony P&S camera) I made a macro image of this watch.
I was looking for something around the house to shoot last night, since winter doesn't inspire me to go out,
when I realized I'd never tried shooting my watch again, with my SLR & dedicated macro lens. So here's the reshoot.
I liked the longer exposure capturing 3 positions of the second hand, located below the moon-phase window.

Super sharp, great presentation!
Took me more than 3 seconds to find the second hand, though... :-)

Great shot. I'm glad I decided to go into the picture link to see with what and how it was shot.

I didn't understand the '2 second' title and that was explained in the link.

Chris - - Excellent - - your imagination is right up their with your photographic skills. My first thought was this was the face of a grandfather clock - - how great of you to see your watch and transform it as you did. Congrats on the awards; they are well deserverd.

Thanks so much, folks, for the encouragement and for taking a look! Cheryl, that Canon 100mm f/2.8 Macro lens is brilliantly sharp! Easily my favorite lens so far!

Congrats on POTD. Odd that the simplicity of a watch is able to catch the eye like that. Well done.

Thanks, Jace. This watch caught my eye nearly 15 years ago, when I wanted something special to mark my second full-time job! "Complicated" watches (having more than one sub-dial) have always fascinated me, and this one had such an elegant look, I couldn't resist it in the jeweller's shop. I'm thrilled that those good looks still pay off today ;)
