Drawn 'reflection'

A completely different type of shot for me. I placed the watch on a plain sheet of paper and then quickly (and crudely) sketched it on the paper. Somehow the blend of the actual watch, the shadow and the sketch seemed interesting to me. I made sure to include the reflection of the drawing in the watch face to enhance this effect.
I think the shapes in the drawing make you consider the detail in the actual watch more. Basically you see the perfection of the watch by comparing it to the imperfection of the drawing.

You will be surprised but I prefer the drawing over the actual watch!

How very artistic of you! And what a deep analysis, too. Are you running out of interesting things to photograph in your room? Well, you can refresh your photo collection with Philly, NYC, and CA coast pictures soon.

Thanks for the comments.

Robyn- I actually do have a lot of shots from inside the room left, I just didn't want to overload the site with too many of one type of photo.
