Was the room dim or brightly lit when you took this? And did you use a flash?

never use flash; it was evening in a fairly dark room but with the last light glow coming in the window
I like that. In my own case using no flash lends itself better to black and white because it doesn't matter how the "colors turn out". So you can devote yourself only to the shape and line and the texture of the shadows.

David you are a sweetheart and I do indeed like it. I have an odd passion for clocks. I love them.

you took your time, I put that up ten minutes ago, but you were too busy asking questions
now how would you have exposed for it !?
I am at work as well and had to pause to actuall earn my money. Besides, the clock has nowhere to go except through time and thus he will always be there waiting for me.
As for my exposure choice? I can't say without being there. But knowing myself I would probably choose a stronger contrast between light and shadow.
... and then you would lose a lot of midtone values ~ midtones provide a hint of texture ~ would you want to deny that !?
Occasionally yes. Not always.
... then you are absolutely right M ~ you judge on what you see and what you wish to interpret and then pass on or communicate to others
Haha! Thank you very much. And that is actually exactly what I try to do when I shoot. :) (Succeeding is not always so easy.)
.... just don't show the ones were you haven't succeeded ~ that's what I do
if it were all easy ~ it wouldn't be a challenge ~ and therefore what would be the point
HEHE! There is a mess of old shots that I have removed from the public eye because I thought it was so fine when I first took it, and upon later viewing was horrified that I put such things on display. First lesson I had to learn was the difference between images that are interesting only because they have a personal connection for me and an image that can be appreciated by anyone.

Thank you very much. And how did you find out my age?
