  #192 Sophistication
Entry 1 of 17
   
 
Sophisticated time       ©2017 RobertLavker
Panasonic DMC-GX7       1st place, 154 points
5s, ?, ISO 125, ?, Aperture Priority, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: increased shadows, decreased highlights, increased contrast; curves; filter - unsharp mask. Placed two images into a single Photoshop document; blended image layers using auto blend layers; cloned out dust, sized.       Extra Info: IMHO a watch is a perfect example of sophistication compared to a sundial. This Chronoswiss Opus Chronograph Skeleton watch, with its 18 carat rose gold case, sapphire crystal on front and case back, automatic movement, 46 hour power reserve running 5 separate dials, is a paradigm of sophistication. Unfortunately the ~$30K price is a bit to sophisticated for me.

    Thanks for the comments and votes. A special thanks to the Chicago jewelry store that allowed me to photograph this watch.

    Gee Robert. I see you put your better entry in the Open, so you wouldn't have to pick a new challenge. Well you won both categories, so what's next?

Focus, lighting, sharpness all superb!

    Wow, $30K.... even without the price tag, this conveys sophistication, both as something to wear and the craftsmanship. In my TT.

    This would have been my first choice had it not been for the ragged overlap. It's absolutely stunning great detail and colour.

    Beautiful workings. Yes, it is sophisticated and you have photographed it well. Highly placed in my rating.
I was tempted to photograph my husband's Rolex. Unfortunately it is a Balinese Rolex, bought for him by our son when holidaying, haha.

    Wonderful choice for the theme. Beautifully taken and crystal clear for 5 seconds.

    i like this. sort of steampunk.
few issues where they overlap but doesn't distract much.

    Certainly a very sophisticated piece of work, and the dial and works are well shot. But is this two images super-imposed? Why does the right edge of the dial appear eaten-away? Not sure what I'm seeing here.
