    Swinging pendulum

    Since its discovery in 1602 by Galileo Galilei, the regular motion of pendulums was used for timekeeping, and was the world's most accurate timekeeping technology until the 1930s. (Wikipedia)

    Not commenting on the image, since it is not allowed. But I want to give some additional (smartass...) information:

    The pendulum was discovered in the year 1602 by Galileo Galilei, however it was Christiaan Huygens who invented the pendulum clock in 1656. This is the same Huygens as in the Cassini-Huygens ESA Mission.

    Samrat Yantra at Jantar Mantar in Jaipur, India. This was once the largest sundial in the world.

    Contests is over folks. Thanks for your entries. Some interesting photos from some of you and thanks for submitting them.

    Nice Speedmaster Pro there. Anyone would think you was trying to influence the vote by posting one of my favourite all time watches ;)

    pmexperience
    Nice looking public clock. Photo looks a bit instagramy for my liking but I still like it.

    deep diver
    Love the description but I find the photo somewhat disturbing for some reason. Just looks a bit creepy. Like an old xray. Interesting capture though.

    salacious
    I really like this shot. It has great a great tone to it. Really interesting looking clock too.

    Treycox
    Interesting macro shot. Moody.

    jabbott
    That is one big sundial! Noce colours. I like it.

    Indydenny
    One of the oldest celestial timepieces in the world. Great place to visit.

    Nice idea. I like the angle and the subject matter but the flash is a little stark. Next time you should try a tripod shot with a long exposure (i'm guessing you didn't have one with you so did the best with what you had at the time). Thanks for submitting it. Glad to see you're still shooting every day.

    That's a really nice photo and a great interpretation of the contest brief. I love the eye contact and emotion in the gent's expression. Thanks for posting it.

    Nice colours in this one and lovely and sharp. I like this one a lot. It has good composition too. Good job.

    Laird Knox
    I'll be honest; it's not really my kind of photo but I appreciate it on a technical level and it's well done. Thanks for entering it.

    So without further ado, here are my top three:

    Third place goes to:

    dmax35
    Although not technically perfect I really like this shot. The PP on it is right up my alley and I love the composition. Thanks for entering, that's a nice shot.

    Second place:

    jkramerbob
    Yeah that's just really nice! Lovely bokeh, great composition, nice watches. I love it. Thanks for posting it.

    and the winner is.......

    It just has to Schtumple

    To be honest i'm not a fan of composite shots but just look at it! That's brilliant! Out of all of the entries this week this one says "Time" to me. I'm a big fan of your photography Schtumple and love the muted colours you generally use. This really is a great photo and it's a very deserving winner this week. Thanks for sharing it.

    So that's me done. Once again, thanks everyone for entering. It's up to Schtumple to get the next contest up and running. Looking forward to it.

    Thank-you

    A big thank-you MacRy for the time taken to review all the wonderful photos. This is my first week to participate and any criticism is appreciated. A special thank-you to my good friend Indydenny who invited me to join this weekly contest! After a quick look at this week's photos I felt it was a race for second place with Schtumple's shot a true standout. Simply an amazing photo!

    Congratulations to the winners.
    Thanks for the feedback and judging. Yes you were right I didn't have my tripod with me. Plus it was a bit of a hurried shot as I was in a deserted grave yard. The angle was the one that didn't have me standing on some poor dudes grave!

    Not quite shooting everyday, but as often as I can.

    Looking forward to next weeks challenge.

    Great job MacRy, thanks for the feedback.

    Wonderful image Schtumple. I agree with the comment on the colors. They really make the image.

    Dmax35...I really missed how great your shot was as well till I looked at it full size. The thumbnail in in way did it justice. Really nice.

    Thanks for the feedback! I put that as being the best photo I've ever taken to be honest, it's gonna take a lot for me to top it.

    Some really varied entries this week, love the creativity of the submissions.

    Here's the new contest: Nighttime
