The before shot was taken at 18:38pm today. The after shot was taken at 18:41pm. The watch never stopped ticking and worked normally for those three minutes. Can you explain why the hands have not moved forward?

This was a first attempt at copying a photograph I've seen recently - I just liked the effect and want to produce something similar. Hopefully I'll have a chance later in the week to produce something rather better than this. :)

Back to the original question - can you explain why time stood still? (I do know the answer.)

:grin: Thank you, Roger for having a go. I suspect no one else could guess?!!

It‘s simply two photographs with one put on the upper layer and then using a mask to “burn a hole” to be able to see the watch in the lower layer :D

I hadn't thought about that hack in this one. Well played, M8.
