Tick Tock... Don't Be Late


I know, I'm totally cheating... first of all, I picked the obvious thing to take a picture of, but I love my clock, and what better word to stick it with? Secondly, I put two pictures on. I can NOT decide... I like the feel of the first one and the lines of the second. So, deal with it. Scroll faster if you don't want to look at two. ;)
I always forget to put CC at the bottom of my posts, but I'm always open to suggestion... so if you see one of my posts without CC, just know I'm ready for the criticism any time... bring it on! :)
For Charlotte, and whoever else cares: first picture: f4.5, 1/13, ISO 200, focal length 38mm, no flash; second picture: f5.3, 1/6, ISO 200, 62mm, no flash

I like the top one. I like the warm color and the focus on the clock with it's distressed look. I think the second one looses some of that because of where the focus is.

One of my cousins has that same clock and I adore it! Is the first in sepia and the second b/w? Or the first natural? Either way, I like the first one myeslf, simply because it has a little more of the numbers, representing the late-ness. Anyway, beautiful pictures, both!

The first one has a little bit of desaturation, but it didn't make much of a difference, since those really are the colors of the clock. I think I need more color in my house. ;)

This is a cool clock! I like the top picture. I love the warmth and 'aged' look of the clock. It's like the running of time... we just get older. :)

I love both of these pictures, Mindy. I can't choose either. Great job.

I remember this clock from your house in Rigby... I love it too!

And thanks for technical info!

Your clock is beautiful, so I'm not surprised you took a picture of it for this! And I totally feel you on the two picture thing--I have such a hard time deciding that I want to post 2 pictures almost every time! The only CC I would give would be to crop a little off the top of your first picture (I've been obsessed with the "principle of 1/3's" lately, and I think cropping it would help give you some great 1/3's, thus making some really interesting shapes). =) Love both of these pictures!

I love the first one! Colors are great. I'm not as keen on the composition of the 2nd one, but they both have good qualities

I love this clock... and the first shot. The colors are so rich, and I think the second might be cropped down a little too much. Just in case you needed one more vote! You have such a great eye for angles! Love it!
