This ring belongs to my wife and was created by a local artisan named J Ritz. The photo was shot in a lightbox I constructed lit with three sets of halogen lights on the outside and diffusers. A mirror was used to add slight highlights to the stone and diamonds. Camera on tripod.

Good and well composed, but not quite enough punch in the colors to stand out.

The subject seems to fade into the background to me. I might try a more contrasting background.

Colors of the photograph blend very nicely together. The shell with the ring on it appears to come out of the picture and draws the eyes immedeantly.

This photo has no real emphasis, there is too much going on. Maybe a very close up or a different background could help.

pretty but rather distracting

Not bad. The tones are great for the product and there's plenty of negative space for text. However, I don't feel that the ring is the most prominant element in the ad. Perhaps more contrast and a different POV would aliviate this.

The color doesn't work for me, not enough contrast, all of the objects seem to blend in to one another.

The ring kind of looks awkword on a shell

The jewelry tends to get lost in the background. Needs more contrast to pull it off.
