This is a really well composed photo, the cooler colours of the pocket watch contrasting nicely with the warm colour of the glitter and the surface it's resting on. On the whole, what is in focus and what is not is really good too. However, to the immediate left and right of the pocket watch (especially the right) the background is sharpened just a little bit too much, I think. When you look at the photo, your attention is immediately drawn to the clockface itself, then to the glitter on it, but I find my eyes kind of 'slipping' to look at the glittery patch of table too, which detracts from the rest of the photo. You did a very good job on the lighting though, catching just enough that it makes the watch and glitter shine, but doesn't block out the details of the clock with too much light. Very good job
Well being a photographer myself I couldn't help but notice the depth of field right away, how it focuses just on the center of the pocket watch. (Which the fact it is a pocket watch makes me really excited) I am not sure if thats dirt or sparkles either way it gives me feels, like somebody left it behind. Or an even deeper look, the Eiffel Tower. It also strikes me as a memory. Somebody possibly loved going there. Ahh I am getting a little to deep into this. Well anyway, I love the composition and how the color balance is off. (at least I think the inside of the watch is white. I like how it appears blue) Great work!
People like to say that these shots of pocket watches are getting old. However, I disagree. I like this watch and whatever happens to be all over the object leads me, at first, to believe it's just been sitting in an old pile of sawdust. (save for the sparkling I noticed after my initial glance.)
I also enjoy that my imagination was put to work here, in observing this image.
