212 Salon: Watch(es)

Watch(es) - a small, portable timepiece, as a wrist watch or pocket watch.

We all used to wear them, now more and more people seem to rely on their phones for the time.

Please show us a watch or two, big, small, cheap or mega expensive. Case or movement, anything interesting.

The rules

1. All photographs are to be uploaded to the photo gallery at http://dpnow.com/galleries/

They can be put in members own gallery if they wish. The resulting link generated for the photo will then be pasted into the next available space in the salon thread. Please keep photos to a maximum of 1000 pixels wide so people can see the whole image without scrolling.

2. As agreed previously, TWO entries maximum per user ID only please, which must be the personal work of the entrant.

3. Entries should be ‘in line’ within the thread (not as a link to an image held somewhere else).

4. Comments on entries are welcome within the salon thread itself.

5. After the close, the curator will indicate a winner and a couple of runners up.

6. The curator’s decision is final.

7. The winner will be invited to choose the next theme and curate the next salon.

8. If the winner is unable to curate the next salon the current curator may offer that ‘honour’ to any willing volunteer, possibly the entrant in second or third place.

9. These rules are to be copied and pasted with the new theme by the curator at the top of the new salon thread with a finish date and time.

10. As with all photos posted on DPNow, copyright remains with the photographer and DPNow will not use them without permission.


The closing date is midnight on Monday 31st October 2016.

Re: 212 Salon: Watch(es)

Come on folks - it is an interesting challenge because it is close up or macro requiring control of highlights and reflections. Just right for passing a dull evening.

Judgement will be on quality of picture - not of the watch!

Re: 212 Salon: Watch(es)

Well that went well

Still a little difficult though. Barrie's first watch picture would get it for technical excellence but I like something a little unusual so I will pick Kurt. Thank you both.

Hi Mike -

I am hopeful now Ian is updating the site we will see some of the regulars reappear.

Thanks for the comments and running the Salon.

Congratulations Kurt - I like your entry as I was attempting to carry out something similar but couldn't quite get there.

Regards. Barr1e

Re: 212 Salon: Watch(es)

A shame there were not more entries, but like me I guess people find it's a busy time of year, especially to take something different. I must own up to creating mine with a scanning app.

I will try to think up something poste haste


Kurt

Apologies for not joining in... I meant to, then lost my internet connection for a week! Well done to both of you for entering, and congrats to Kurt
