This is a timeless image, I've seen it done many times but it never fails to look so inspiring and really beautiful. Of course the type of watch and the size of text in the book do have a different impact on the viewer.

For example, this piece says to me that the watch would most likely belong to an aspiring writer with the book being their inspiration; maybe there is an overhanging worry of not making it as a well-known author or a time scale almost to complete their work by. It may even be that they missed their opportunity, running out of time.

Of course, as mentioned, this has a different effect on different viewers; but the style of the watch suggests it a newer watch, whereas a different font for the numbers may have made it look more antique. If it did look like an older watch, it may give more of a fatherly aspect, who regrets the time, or lack of, spent with his children.

I would personally have only had the chain running in one direction down the spine of the book, but the focus on the text is really great; it leaves enough to read some of it, without giving away which book it is or anything about it.

The background is also great, the grey scale used really attributes to the colour and texture seen in the book and watch and doesn't clash or cause any confusion over the theme of the image.

I really like this; I know my ideas of the subject are probably very off, but art is different to everyone. But overall there isn't much I would change about this image; I really like everything about it, wonderful image.

I like books. I like pocket watches. How could I not like this image?

The focus is great - you can see the watch in amazing detail, and I like how some words stand out from the blurry haze.
