Nice job, The product is crisp and doesn't get lost. I'm sure the pendant's for sale and not the rose. Nice DOF. If I had to be picky, the reflection from the chain needs to go away.

Top part of cjain drapped against flower is little bit blown out. Beautiful composition and lighting. 8.

Wow..what a great set up and excellent lighting. Bounces right off the screen. Greta colors.

A pretty soft picture...not crazy about the title though...the colors are wonderful, the jewelry is in perfect focus, this looks like a perfect ad for Mother's Day, elegant and feminie...very nice!

Very nice. Maybe lower the camera a little to get a better show of the jewel.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

To my eye, there is a disconnect between the soft delicate background and the bold dramatic jewelry. Somehow it just doesn't work for me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Outstanding composition and maybe just a a bit more softer lighting would have the pendant receive its full due. The flowers are beautifully defined. Bumping up.

04/30/2005 09:24:50 AM
Well done. The only thing is the highlights on the chain, may be a bit much?

I thought I had my favorite picked out until just now...I think I like this one the best. The colors are beautiful. The all compliment each other very well. The focus is perfect. A big fat 10 from me. good luck..hope this wins!

P.s..can I buy this after the challenge is over? hehehe ;-)

well pur together I like it but I think the pink rose is a little to powerful 7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/29/2005 04:31:19 PM
very good placement. For once, the flowers don't seem so distracting as others have tried in this challenge. Nice job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/29/2005 03:08:47 PM
Nice choice of colors. It's delicate and stands out well. 8

well lit, grren distracts
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/29/2005 01:14:52 AM
I love the roses in this, but it just may be a little on the bright side on the bottom left corner, but others might say otherwise! The necklace is nice and sharp.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/29/2005 01:03:28 AM
Excellent, no text needed here. Nice soft background and the subject is nice and sharp. I can't think of any thing that I would do differently here. It does get a little hot on the petals in the upper left but still not a serious problem. Great job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/29/2005 12:13:19 AM
Super use of texture to make your point. Bold colors and nice, clear image. 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/28/2005 05:41:08 PM
Real deal: one of the best examples of a background that really complements the subject (which in itself is really well captured). Good work.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/28/2005 04:41:19 PM
beautiful shot....my only non important opinion is that the flowers are so pretty that they draw my attention away from the product....good luck!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/28/2005 02:51:13 PM
Very nicely done. I love the composition and the lighting is excellent.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/28/2005 12:22:22 PM
Excellent work, but I don't understand the color band of white in the necklace?? Lighting? Not sure. 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/28/2005 10:02:09 AM
Very nice use of the roses. The colors in this jump out nicely. The only nitpicks I can come up with are the necklace is a little hot in the mid-section, and the green in the top left corner is a little distracting. Overall, great job. Good luck.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/27/2005 10:23:49 PM
Very nice! Only small nitpick about this is the way the chain is draped over the flower. Otherwise very beautiful! 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/27/2005 06:03:00 PM
The soft focus on the roses works well against the sharpness of the pendant. The green in the top left is a little distracting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/27/2005 03:25:49 PM
Soft colours work well.8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/27/2005 01:31:09 PM
like the softness of the flowers, whish the necklace slightly closer up
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/27/2005 11:57:12 AM
Jewel is very sharp and crisp. nice details and reflections. I think the DOF could have been more narrow to make the jewel stand out more. Nice use of the flowers to complement the color of the jewel. I am not sure about the centered composition which seems a bit off to me. Good job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/27/2005 10:33:33 AM
Very nice! Love the soft look of the roses in the background.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/27/2005 08:59:49 AM
elegant
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/27/2005 04:42:56 AM
Very soft & feminine.
I like the layout here and the silky feel of the background.
Only one thing I see that could use improvement is the lighting, due to the reflections on the chain (tough one to keep from happening though) (7)

The colors in this photograph are stunning. I would like to see the focus be just a little sharper on the large stone purple stone in the pendant. Otherwise, this is a very nice image.

nice image but focus seems a litle off maybe you wanted it soft my eye goes to the roses which are beautiful
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/25/2005 10:36:23 PM
nice contrast of the jewelry over the rose. soft focus looks good. nice and sharp. gl

Love the soft focus and flattering lighting. A great entry for this challenge. I see you left some space below for lettering. You could have used it rather than incorporating it into your title (or place it in both places). However, no deductions for a lack of writing. 8

I like this photo. Roses and jewelry one of my favorite combinations!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/25/2005 02:03:52 PM
Really nice contrast from the soft roses to the sharp necklace. Love the soft colors in the background. I can even see the text in my mind here, I think it would work great in an AD.

If I would change anything, it would be the purple stone.. seem slightly dark and oversaturated... But it is just nitpicking, this is still one of my fav. in this challenge. Good Luck :)

First time I have ever heard my inner voice say "Fabulous" - must be getting in touch with my feminine side. Great job on this. One of the best I've seen so far.
