    I really loke this one Joe. Maybe its the sparkle effect.....or the sharpness.....it works for me!!!

  • Michael Ball

    Michael Ball gave props (19 Dec 2009):

    I like all three. On this one though, I think a closer crop, leaving in the 3rd star effect would have been nice. Just my opinion!

    i really like the detail here! and i like the original. how about a crop half way between the 2nd and third, a bit more arm? just my opinion...

    It's really so hard to select. Each stands on its own merits.

  • Sonia Adam Murray

    Sonia Adam Murray gave props (20 Dec 2009):

    To be honest I like both. The first one shows the watch as a whole, the second zooms in on the details of the watch, both showing off different aspects.
