    Took this pic earlier today and just got done doing some editing on it.
    I admit, I'm not a very creative person. I try with pictures though. So this might seem a little boring to most, but I like how it symbolizes the time away from home. Well it is a cool looking picture too.
    So... I'm rambling now.

    It'd be nice if we could tell what the other clock represents. I'm assuming some time in the U.S.?

    Assuming you're in Iraq, it'd also be cool if there was some "prop" related to war we could also see in the frame.

    Hmmm, that would be good too. I just wanted it to seem mysterious like showing it disconnected from the states or something. I'll think of something else I can get in the pic for tomorrow.

    Somewhat interesting, leaves me wondering what the point of the picture was, and what the other clock represents.

    Looks nice and sharp and well exposed & edited

    Now I'm starting to see that. How without a backstory it wouldn't say much. Hmm I am going to try and reshoot this with something else in the pic.

    Not happening. Command would probly freak out and hold a formation until someone owned up to it.

    I see a bit of a glare at the top of the Baghdad clock, it's much more apparent in B&W

    not sure how i feel about it :noes:

    Take the shot again with more DOF so you can see the other clock. Maybe lean a rifle against the wall near the Baghdad clock and include part of it in the frame.

    Looks familiar. Christmas in Iraq is very anti-climatic.
