Clock Broken by Leonid Shectman

August 2019 - Clock Broken

About the Image(s)

My August Image is mostly combination of the real photo that I shot in Italy in Perugia inside the clock tower with my Fuji XH-1and 18-135 lenses. Than I created this composition by using Photoshop. I wanted to create something different. It is my image when the stone is coming through the glass.

Your photo is lovely and your imagination and technique deserves a lot of credit.   Posted: 08/03/2019 14:40:47

Very clever image, way beyond my skill level in compositing... Three questions: 1. why is the hand on the clock burry? Is that part of the story or can it be made sharper? 2. The point of impact for the rock (hole in the glass)... is it possible to make it more obvious? 3. I am not sure if the rock is going in or coming out towards the viewer? Since there is a hole in the glass I'm assuming it is coming towards the viewer??? Doesn't quite make sense to me. But, as said before, WAY beyond my skill level.

Thanks Dorinda, the clock picture is behind, the back side of the clock, so the hand are a little be out of focus. The stone is coming from the outside toward the viewer,this is why the glass shuttering pieces are going in the viewer direction. Anyway, thanks a lot.The picture was taking inside the church and the clock are looking outside to the street.   Posted: 08/06/2019 14:44:32

I like the surreal/fantasy image you created. I wold remove the rock though (is that a rock. It is distracting. Otherwise I love it!   Posted: 08/10/2019 08:45:12

I am sorry, but the rock is the main object in the story, the rock is created all these broken glass.   Posted: 08/10/2019 09:41:49

A very interesting and thought provoking creative image. However I think leaving out or desaturating and decreasing opacity in the portrait painting on the right and the door on the left would focus our attention on the rock ,the breaking glass and the clock which are the main elements for me. I see this image as Stopping Time and the shadowy buildings and background elements add to the sense of time passing and then being suddenly stopped. The fact that we are seeing the clock from the back adds another possibility : that of stopping back in a previous era.   Posted: 08/11/2019 15:08:51
