    I prefer the first one overall. Though I like the wood better, I like everything else about the first one better.

    I can't seem to get the same tone...different room, different light, different day!

    I really like these images and the story behind it. You Mom will be touched with any image you give her I am sure...

    I can't speak much to the technicalities of lighting or anything but I like the compass on wood better and also like that we are able to see more of the dial in these shots.

    On another thread I read something about the hands of the clock are most often shown at ten and two in images and on tv because it looks "happier". Along those lines I wonder if you could shoot it showing true north as in "this compass and Dad's memory will always be with me and keep me on the right path?". I know that some will probable think that is psychological/sentimental mumbo-jumbo but the thought crossed my mind so I thought I'd throw it out there.

    Shane, you bring some good points, thanks. According to Grandpa though, true North was not always the correct path. Sometimes it is best to take the path less traveled. How's that for "psychological/sentimental mumbo-jumbo"?
