    I realized how plain and boring a simple analog clock looked in my first attempt of posting up the shots. So I livened them up a little and turned them into abstract art. So if a mod could please move this to the "Abstract & Concept Photography" thread, It would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    I moved the thread, as requested.

    I like your "livened up" versions -- the first two are my favorites.

    I like number 1 a lot - it's simple, but VERY effective. Nice work!

    For me, the others don't work nearly as well, but it's a great idea to try different effects on one subject.

    I have to agree with Owd Roger. Number 1 is a superb abstract..

    Ha, ha. Thank you sir. It's very easy to do this effect. All the effects actually. The program is free under photobucket.com. I just used the "blur edges" option and then used the distort, twirl effect, while adjusting the outside diameter of the circular tool to the exact size of the inside of the clock.

    Thanks Morris, being a slow learner , I am going to try my best to learn this technique... I really appreciate the come back on the how to...

    I knew that it was a digital darkroom effect, but I haven't ever tried anything like that... I have some reflective ball shots that I would like to mess around with, and your photo and help here have provided me with a learning path that I hadn't discovered.
