A critique for you, my dear!

As you may know, clock pictures are admired or hated.
I'm personally pissed off those, but yours caught my eye and now it's already the 50th time I look at it!
Your picture expresses a nice atmosphere, it's quite autumn-like, but also reminds me of Christmas, because of the spice anis.
You have got a great depth of field and as you know, the Square cropping is utterly perfect! :giggle:
I don't have much to say at all, you know that I love your pictures.
Your picture catches the eye, brings a comfortable feeling of warmth and coziness and is technically perfect!
I love it, you did a really great job, my dear.
Keep up the good work.
What do you think?

Uhh I just saw you have requested critique for this :D So here's mine harhar! Be aware :giggle:

Vision
As you may know I'm a huge huge fan of conceptual artworks. I love it, when the artist really thought about the things he/she shot! So this one is a perfect example for what I mean. I love the way you put all the different things together and created a wonderful still life which looks as if it belonged like this forever!

Originality
It's always hard to decide whether a work is original and unique or not. The single elements like a clock, dry leaves, wood, etc. don't seem to be so unique. But I think the overall composition and idea makes it here! You put them together very nicely and as I said, I like the concept a lot. Nothing really to critizise here :giggle:

Technique
When it comes to conceptual works, I think technique is not the most important point. BUT of course it's great to see thoughts that have been put into the technical side. I like your use of light and shadow to create a nostalgic feeling that is underlined by the depth of field. The colors give besides the nostalgic feeling a taste of autumn too - love it!
The only thing I'm not sure about is the crop. I really like squares, but I'm not sure whether this takes away too many atmosphere. I think you submitted this work as a non-square too and I like the way it creates mor width there and more motive in a way if you know what I mean. Here everything seems a little bit squeezed maybe... :confused: More space above the clock would have catched the eyes of the watcher better I could imagine. But of course this crop creates a kind of comfortable mood, which I like too ^^
Just an idea that came to my mind...
Another thing I thought of would be a different use of the depth of field. I think it would be interesting to see the same composition with more sharpness on the clock and less on the front elements... Just for curiousity ^^

Impact
Uhhh impact is always hard to describe haha ^^
Soooo... what really catches my eyes here is the strong atmosphere you created. The tension because of the depth of field, the composition, the colors, the lights and shadows - everything fits together very well and I like the way it affects me. The picture feels comfortable - sounds stupid, but I don't know how to describe it better ^^
All in all: LOVE :D


Keep your awesome work going :hug: I really would like to see more still life works of yourse, because I like the way you see the things!

This is very much Salvador Dali and his liquid watches.
The consumption of time, the fragility of everything so apparently solid, vanitas vanitatum et omnia vanitas.
Really great.

Eh dimmi ma hai veramente pensato a Dali mentre facevi questo?
Perche', sai, qui l'orologio e` piuttosto solido ma l'idea della fluidita` e` affidata agli altri oggetti piu` fragili - e trovo la trovata geniale.

No, in veritÓ stavo solo cercando un'atmosfera autunnale e una una grande profonditÓ di campo... A Dali non ci avevo proprio pensato, anche perchŔ al tempo astratto e surreale non erano proprio nelle mie corde! 
Cmq, grazie infinite di nuovo per le tue parole, sono molto felice che ti piaccia! :heart:
