My husband has been sent a watch to mend for a friend, so when he got his box of tools out I couldn't help but get the camera out.

I like your shots, though my favorite is #2. The first one looks what could be motion blurred, maybe pumping up the ISO to 400 wouldn't have hurt and you would've been able to get a faster shutter speed. I like the wider perspective on the second one, the more somehow "cluttered" look when he has the watch down on the table with all the watch's parts and the tools and everything there looks nicer. Also the fact that he has the watch down on the table I think draws more attention to what's on the table (tools, watch parts, etc.), hence why I feel that kind of cluttered look.

Good job :)

Thank you, pierovera for the feedback. The motion blur in the first shot was due to the watch being slightly rotated during its inspection, but I didn't want to yell 'don't move' at hubby as he'd be too self conscious then of me taking pictures and his concentration would be lost. These shots are a work in progress really; I hope to one day get my perfect picture. ;)

I too prefer the second picture, as I find the inner workings of the watch more interesting than the watch face and it does draw you in more to the picture.

Thank again for your comments, it's appreciated :)
