Very classy image and beautifully done (and said - your comments).

Soooo hard to catch that sparkle that you've got gleaming, there. Perfect placement of all three rings, and I love the way you've held them together and the dynamics created by the ribbon in the shot. A maglite, huh? Funny how many gazillions of photographers spend gazillions of dollars on fancy lighting equipment and don't rival this result. I'm adding it to my favorites... It's inspiring and beautiful.

The photo is good looking but it did a great injustice for the diamonds in the photo. Not even a sparkle. The biggest one is at least 0.75 to 1 carat.

Simply gorgeous, composition is great, colors are very nice....wish the diamond was a bit more in focus.

The rings are awesome, but the ribbons make this shot, I think. They add to the composition by giving it some color, texture, and movement. Great work

Challenge met. I would've never thought of arranging the three rings with those ribbons, but that turned out very well. Need to add that to my list of things to remember for future photo ideas! You've got nice focus and controlled the reflections on the jewellery pretty well. While I admire the gradiant background you've achieved, I don't think it adds anything to the photo. Have you considered cropping down to the red ribbon (maybe just crop a bit off its highest point on the left). The borders work well here, overall a very good entry for this challenge.

Would like to have seen a little bit less texture in the background. Nice lighting and use of framing.

Beautiful shot, one of my two favorites this challenge. I tried a similar shot and gave it up when I couldn't get these results. I'd be interested in your setup and lighting if you would e-mail me. Great colors and lighting. Looks like a ribbon to me!

Beautiful photo. Love the colors. Fantistic focus. Maybe an extra ribbon or so. Love the symbolism of "Trinity" forever. Georgeous rings. Well done. Borders add to this one. Love the glint at the top of the diamond. Congratulations on a well done photo.

Very nice set up. The only complaint is how the diamond seems to flare ... I've had the same problem when shooting diamonds. Nice touch by throwing in some red. Good luck. Jacko.

Great lighting, and well done on the compousure. Maybe better use of the top space, rather than just dark.. more ribbons maybe. while still keep the rule of thirds with the rings.?

Nice photo, not too dark, the ribbons are a tiny bit distracting, but it's cool that the diamond isn't glaring. well done. -annida

looks great... I don't really like all the shawdows though... perhaps more lighting would lighten the photo up... of course this may be exactly what you wanted to do..
