Nice idea, ok macro....the background just kills it.

I like the luster of the gemstone, but the metallic texture of the blade seem lost completely - it looks more like wood. This might need a second light or a reflector to bring out the details of the dual subject.

close, could've worked, not sure what's off with this pic, maybe the color and the way the jewel is positioned?

The green background is terrible. You would have done much better if you had spent few more minutes in this picture. i give you 4

This picture has potential but there are a few things that affect its overall effect. It looks a little slanted to the left. It is too flat ie. no feeling of depth. The picture would have been more interesting if the gem were not directly in the center of the picture. The green backround is OK but where is the yellow in the gem coming from?

the green was not a good idea, the razor blade isn't level, and the crystal could use some different composition.

I don't think the bead is real clear ( yellow middle) and sharp and the blade would be better without the yellow outline around the bottom.
