I've got two versions of this and struggled to decide which to post. The shadows in this one 'ere are darker.

edit - and feel free to count the number of circles

Nice one ferny but i don't think i'll bother counting that lot. I hope you haven't smashed up that nice clock you posted earlier. :-)

I really like this one - love clock "guts" for some reason. So interesting - so uniform but so individual.

Ferny, this is an absolutely cool shot. Post the other one too so we can see why you chose this one.

Why do you have all those clock parts?

Here is the other version then.



It is brighter when compared to the other. On its own it may look better, but put the two side by side and I think there is a clear winner. I prefer the darker shadows in the first one I posted. This needed some editing to. For example, at the top left of every large silver piece and the bottom of every hole in every silver piece there was a bright white reflection. I used the burn tool (for the first time proper) to change it.

It is a crop of a clock come picture of an old 1919 bus. Not a very good picture I might add, but it's old and was bought before I was born. The lower body of the bus is made of clock pieces.

You're right about the first one being better.

What else would a person do with a box full of clock parts?:-) Of course, it was probably someone who worked in a clock factory or who repaired clocks. I once knewa guywho worked in a toothbrush factory. We were always trying to figure out what could be done with the brushes that didn't pass inspection.

Wow, ferny, did you shoplift all these gears from the local clock repair shop? !!! (Ok, just kidding - I saw your explanation :-))

A great shot!

(I like the first one better too)

Great picture! In agreement with everyone, I like the first better as well.

All these gears are making me dizzy as well! I like this challenge! Haha.

Hm, I'm gonna guess 51?
