Creative incorporation of two different items with numerals into a single image for a more complex entry. The perspective on the inkwell is way off, however. (We should be looking nearly straight down onto it.) I also think the watch should cast more shadow on the fingers. I personally would try to arrange the items/crop the image so that the amount of wood desktop (uninteresting background) showing is minimized.

I agree with Danlundberg, the wood desktop is kinda distracting.. the focus should be more on binary stuff.. Good Luck

i think it's a nice concept, maybe the hand is a bit dark, and for the mood you've created maybe the shadow of the hand is also a bit dark good luck

Thanks for the comments. I may try to crop some wood, but I need distance to make the well work, DL. If I stand at a table with such an arrangement, the well would be at about 18-20". I set up a similar scenario and the container was at about 45 degrees, which is what I shot for with the well. So I have to disagree about the perspective being way off-slightly...maybe. The shadow is an interesting point I should probably soften the hand-to paper shadow, as the watch shadow is fron the original photo. Thanks for the constructive criticism!
Edit: I cropped a bit of wood and softened the hand shadow. I had to move the quill to accomodate the changes. I also reopened in camera raw and warmed the jpeg to give the atmosphere a more candle lit feeling

EDIT AGAIN: Curse you DanLundberg! You were right. The inkwell is history
..and the composition is better too.
