About the Image(s)

I took this image on a Camera Club Field Trip. This clock was on the outside of a old bank building. I was taking it at an angle. I tried to make the correction on the lines. I used three textures.

An interesting enough clock. The textures do add a feeling of "old"
To me, the areas where the clock ends and the textures begin seem haphazard, and perhaps the clock could be transformed to be rounder.   Posted: 02/04/2021 17:35:19

As a fan of fantasy fiction, this image really appeals to me. The distortion of the circle just adds mystery. I can see what Witta meant in the area from about 4:00 to 8:00. Some of the clock's frame is missing. The second version is almost another image. The background is very red, perhaps a warning that time is getting short. The clock face is clearer. I like both versions.   Posted: 02/10/2021 12:52:12

Hi Linda - I too like both versions, for different reasons. I think I prefer your redo in terms of fine art - it really tells a story. I am intrigued by it, look further, and there is an air of mystery and danger :)   Posted: 02/10/2021 13:42:09

I find I like your first image more than the second. With a bit of distortion to the clock and some of the frame fading away, I imagine how one could be "losing time". Like this clock is being sucked away into another world.

I think this is more about understanding the intent from the artist's perspective or the story one is trying to tell. I feel the first image tells a better story than your second edit that you posted.   Posted: 02/21/2021 10:13:05

I too prefer the first image. The distortion of the shape and the missing ditties between 4 and 8 are all due to the perspective of the photographer looking up at the clock. They are natural. To me, the texture over the clock and the shape say "antique" and "history". I like that.   Posted: 02/24/2021 10:56:00
