Not a bad score for your first time out......I scored you higher and still feel it deserved better. But, then again, I would have been tickled with this score 2 weeks ago.

I think a darker background may have added something to this photo. The ring sort of blends in with the white background, making the ring not stand out as much as I think it should. I like the way you displayed it. it makes it original that way. The focus is good and lighting is also good. It's only the background that makes it appear a bit bright. Good luck with the challenge.

Nice still life, interesting curves on the dummy hand. A black background would make the ring stand out better, rather than the hand stand out, since it is presumably the ring that is new. I still like it.

Its seems as if you way oversharpend or compressed your image too much...

One of the more creative photos of the challenge. I love the lines of the hand and the feel of the photo, but needs a richer background and maybe a little sharper focus.

ring looks somewhat distorted, like the image was stretched. the color is wierd too. looks kind of like a dark image lightened too much with levels. nice idea.

Something is odd here: focus? sharpness? levels? curves?

This is a really interesting photo. Nice work, especially on the composition and lighting.

I think a real hand would have been better

Thre seems to be a lot of ccd noise in this shot. You might want to try manually setting your camera to its lowest ISO setting next time.

shouldn't that ring be on the "ring finger"?

Nice idea. Focus seems a bit fuzzy on central subject. Shiny metal and stones like this are very hard to photograph. A darker background might have been effective.

Nice title selection
