    Had some time tonight and started messing around with the camera. I took a picture of my daily watch. I use to wear fancy watches like omega and rolex but, now since I have been coaching soccer for so long this is my fancy daily watch. ;)

    For me the picture looks a little too saturated and under exposed. Also the fact that the digital numbers are vertical make it uncomfortable to look at the watch, as I find myself starting to subconsciously tilt my head.

    Joel thanks for the feedback.

    After looking at the image a bit more I thought a tighter crop might work better...I you know me I like the rich color of the wood but, I did one just for you!

    Crop is much better, imo! I would like version to of cropped with slightly more contrast, yet not as red as version one.

    I actually like version #1 of the crop. the wood color looks more like well oiled and hand rubbed Mahogany.

    Yes, but there is so much less table, that it doesn't detract from the overall image.
