I think this would have been really cool if it were dark and had a single light source showing on the stone and then the background would fade into darkness. Just an idea.

I like the concept here, Although there is just something that throws me with the image. moreso with the cloth the stone is sitting on, something about the colours just isn't right. Also that light spot in the stone drawls my eye in like a vortex.

Rock healing....Very nice! Very simple, but nice texture and angle.

I like the idea behind this picture, but the tigereye would appear better and more interesting if it was closer up, without all of that background.

The white powder is a little distracting - Nice tones.

I like the concept, but it gets lost in competition with the background. I understand you might have wanted to compliment the stone, but another fabric might have served you better for this challenge.

Nice shot, though I did find the red hue on the cushion a little distracting
