I had not shot this with the Lines challenge in mind.
I just bought a new tripod, and wanted to try some stuff with it. The silk and pearl idea was in my mind for long.

This is the "first" for many things
1. First session with new tripod
2. First session where I actually setup something for photgraphy
3. First time I am submitting an absolutely uncropped image

The illumination is from a single light source, a TV. I setup the test image (7 coloured vertical lines) from the satellite receiver set top box.

The compositon is great and the colors are good too, but I think it need a little more light. The necklece is a bit blury and lacks a "punch". I like the soft processing that you showed below better ;)

Am I right you used a tv for lighting? well, that's very creative I must say! :)

I think you tried your best to compose this shot, but it looks a bit busy at the bottom and empty in the middle. Try experiment with composition a bit more, and check out other photos, how did they do the composition?

Also check out the settings you can use from your camera and experiment a bit, try to find a way to get the fucus on (faster shutterspeed) or use a different, bigger and fiercer light source.

Hope this helps!

Thanks to those who commented

Well, i really need to know how to improve this image. I know that i
need to learn a lot about post processing. Posting the original and an outtake i did after the challenge submission dates.

image seems a little flat. Perhaps better lighting and more focus.

Needs sharper focus throughout.

I like the concept and focus.
My eye finds the open space is where it wants to land though, perhaps a tigher crop or bit different placement. imo.
