      Tampen removed the first deleteme tag when his vote was changed. I've changed the "deleteme2 " from helter-skelter to just "deleteme" to accurately reflect the count.

      Thanks everyone for your comments and votes. This is my first one in!

      Hopefully it will not be my last, though I suspect a number of thorough trouncings before I'm successful again. :)

      Reminds me of the cover of "The City of Lost Children." How was the tinting done?

      If it needed my vote, I'd save it.

      @drgandy: Thanks for the added "vote". :)

      Converted to b&w using a red filter, then mucked about with highlights and shadows. Altered the color temp to my liking and added in some grain to give it some grit.

      That was pretty much all that was done.

      there is something about the workings of a clock that is really very appealing, and I think you captured it well.

      Zing! :) Nice shot.

      Out of curiosity, how large is that movement?
