The Image: I have bought my wife and daughter quite a bit of Tiffany's from all over the world including New York, Singapore, Beverley Hills, Melbourne. I wanted an image just like this, perhaps with slightly better lighting.

The Edit: Levels, USM, Colour Balance, Noise Reduction, Blur, D and B.

The Prediction: 6.0024

Post: did better than I thought, so that's cool. The more I looked at it the more I liked it. Nice to get a HM...thanks everyone...and yes, they all had a gift in them at some stage. They are ones I gave to my wife and daughter, and there are a couple that came my way - a ring and a pair of cuff links. We keep the boxes and bags...cause we just do!

Enzo, way to GO! This one was one of my top picks! I would have picked it for a ribbon, but an honorable mention is awesome in this high scoring challenge too!

I really thought that this would ribbon! It was the only 10 I gave in this challenge. Fifth place is still awesome though, and that's a shot you should be proud of!

Many women, not every woman. But I get your point, and it is nicely shot. It would make a great print ad.

Nice. Looks like a glossy advertisement in a magazine.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I feel like the composition is a little too smushed up towards the top. But, it makes for an interesting feel - where I want to stare at the photo for a very long time. So overall I think the composition is not a bad thing. And of course the colors, lighting, and DOF are stunning.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/29/2008 05:58:57 PM
Mmmmm hhhmmmm! The soft focus is wonderful with the colors and your dof and design are stunning.

Good idea and well photographed.
