why not color?

A little more contrast would have made the pearl pop a bit more. Otherwise, very nice.

Lighting is a bit harsh on the shell.

white a little blown out would like to see more detail

Kinda blurry...maybe you could sharpen it a bit and center the subject more.

Very nice. Good use of the rule of thirds. Nice combination of lights and shadows. Nice feeling to it. I would have loved to see it in colour but it is just me, I am sure. 8

Very moody. At first I thought that the pearl would stand out more if it were lay on something darker but after studying it for a bit, I realised how the seashell adds to the picture. I particularly like the shadows off of the shell.

Nice idea, and nice setup. I think better lighting and exposure would have made this a top photo!

I wish the lighting was a little softer

I like this shot, but I feel the white on the left of the shell is just a hair blown out
