A beautiful gem and I hope to see the agate in other pictures - it's gorgeous! I like the way this is presented - only nit would be the folds in the fabric are visible. A pure black flat background would show this off better. Lighting is very well done!

Critique Club Review:

Focus is very good. Depth of field could have been made more shallow to soften the background.

Color, saturation and hue are good.

There are white specs that appear to be dust or noise on the right side of the image. Too bad this is basic editing, or you could have cloned them out.

I think I would have liked a little less overhead light, and more of the light from the candle behind. I like the glow at the back of the bear. But the highlight on the bear's head is a little unflattering.

A very interesting picture.

looks kind of like a stegosaurus.

Like the color combo on this and your choice of a naturally purple object that is not a flower. :) I wonder how it would look without the folds in the background. Like your lighting.

The image seems a bit noisy to me
