    New to this forum. I mix my two hobbies, antique clocks and photography. Trying to do improve technique and presentation of subject matter.

    The 1st photo was taken about 3 years ago using a couple Nikon SB-600. The next two were taken using Novatron lighting systems, with the last one using one head and a reflector. Thoughts?

    Great subject matter, but too much cropping and too "in your face". These are very clear and lighted well, but maybe stand back a little, have some background/foreground, maybe some nice shadows. Make these clocks the center of attention, but let them do the work, if you kind of know what I mean.:mrgreen:

    Should the depth of field (the brass lamp) be more in forcus? Other thoughts? Thanks you.

    I think the lamp is way too bright and distracting. Also the whole picture is a little blurry for some reason. Maybe the camera moved a tiny bit or somethin
