[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Once upon a time I've been placed in this same wall with a great proud. Since then I've seen generations and generations coming in and out at my rhythm to have a breakfast, to lunch or dinner... or even, just for a drink and «two fingers of easy talk»... It was a great time until the moment that I've stopped without anyone had even noticed...
Once upon a time I experienced a time when people's time mattered...
Once upon a time...

Very good entry for the theme, Jose!
This clock is so luminous despite its oldness. I like the vibrance of the colors! Annie

Ola Jose! Amazing clock, wonderful capture and exposure, good sharpness, very good texture. Perfect work. Interesting note. Saude!

I like this nice simple posting Jose - very sharp and crisp image, nice lighting. Also good to not have the clock in the centre of the shot.


Ciao Jose

Belíssimo efeito deste relogio
adoro o visual deste bem antigo.
Com certeza é uma relíquia.
Uma visão de horas bem velha.
Um bonito Bg define bem os detalhes
do relogio e a ação do tempo nele.
Parabens, bonita apresentação.


Excelente trabalho, amigo mb.
Nitidez fantástica e uma claridade de causar inveja (no bom sentido).
Meus parabéns, mestre, e tenha um ótimo fim de domingo!

Grande abraço,
Bruno Santana

hi, Jose. Original andLovely composition of this old watch. Good sharpness, DOfF and colors. Cheers and TFS.

Ola Jose,
Great technical qualities and a beautiful image. Well seen and done.TFS.


Hoi Jose,
A very effective title. Indeed the time, which is refered too and shown, heals wounds and makes damage.
Superb moody photo.
Very good sharpness and exposure.

hi Jose, your note is beautiful and appropriate for the shot and friday´s theme.
The shot is simple and strong.
Congratulations for this amazing mood 'work'.

I love old timepieces, Jose, and this one has such a wonderful feel and character, which is brought out with incredibly sharp detail and the warm tones against the dark background. Nicely composed with some negative space to the left and the dark background gives warmth. Great subject! And very nice image.

Hello Jose - Beautiful composition that creatively shows the effect of time. Nice colors, good sharpness.

Great metaphor and excellent shot showing the aged clock which has so much character and seen so many changes in world history Nice work and note
warm regards

Hi Jose,

I had always wanted to take a photograph of an antique looking clock. This will suffice for now. I especially like seeing the effects of your distinct workflow. Very appealing with rich texture and quite vivid. An impressive studio work. Best regards.

Hello Jose, wonderful idea for the theme, well seen and well done! A fine image! Thanks!


Hello Jose,

Great composition with much simplicity! The clock caputured on the dark red wall make it really stand out! I also really like how the clock is not centered!

Well done!

Hi Jose,
Great and original shot with great colors and composition.
love the mood of this old clock.
Nice presentation.


Good one Jose , so simple, so evocative of the effect that time has had on this clock ,it has rusted over and was left alone un-maintained for some time obviously, if it had had eyes , it would have seen so many mortals loafing about , hurrying by or simply those staring back to know the time ! One object that would have so much to tell if given a voice ,thanks for the note, well observed Jose .

Past future and now,its all the same,its all one ;]].
I like your note and the clock looks as it is from a wine house ?


I like this image. Good, simple composition. Strong colour and perfectly lit.


Amazing clarity and sharpness on this incredible old clock-face ... nicely off-centre in your composition too.

Hello jose

This is not everyone who can see Bordeaux this way, usually it is a bottle of wine.
I like this view of things, these details on the clock, the contrasts are stunning.
The atmosphere is very interesting, the use of light is perfect.
This picture tells a story that the state of mind.
This photo has a soul.
