Taken at home using natural sunlight as the only lighting. I initially planned on including several more items, but ended up with a simpler composition.

Seems a bit dull on the left - maybe some reflector fill? And also a crisper background would have been less distracting. But I like the muted tones - give class to the opulence.

This image is playing tricks on me - the flower is (in parts) very sharp, the diamonds reasonably sharp, but the pearls are way too soft - maybe the depth of field is TOO narrow? The composition is also a little bit too square and orthogonal for my liking - introducing some angles to add a little "movement" or dynamism would help a lot.

The light on the rose is very hash and for some reason the pearls don't look sharp.
