I like this one, Elaine. I haven't even got out any of mine own jewelry -most of which is silver as well. I hope you had as much fun as I did. Love the texture in the one ring. #1559591

Very nice! #10946803

Very nicely done, Elaine. Great study in texture contrast...a good theme for an essentially B&W image.

I think it could have used a bit more DOF. #10947004

Well done Elaine, I think you nailed the right focus point and I like how your reflection is subtly visible on all of the bumps of the ring.. #10947182

Thanks-it was fun. It really helps me focus on composition. Pun intended. #10947826

I really like this one! Great job and the reflections are really cool. #10948920

Kalena Randall January 17, 2014

I really like macro of the jewelry! The only thing I see is the small section of accentuated highlights that may need adjustment. The comp, reflections, and details a super! #10949508

I like how this shot brings out the beauty of the silver. Very rich looking. I also would like to see just a bit more DOF, but it works as shown and I think that is a personal preference. #10950476
