The Image: A bit of a rush job really. We were off to Adelaide and so I had about 45 minutes to set up, light and shoot this image. It really didn't turn out the way I really wanted it to. I knew some people would recognise it as mine.

As mentioned by the voters, it would have been better if the logo was in focus, I agree.

The Edit: Not much other than levels and some d and b and blur...USM.

The Prediction: Well, now that we are in voting, it's a bit late, but this surpassed my expectations. I expected a 6.0000

Some weird coloring in the magenta range. It's still a 10 to me.

damn, all the elements are there, but half the tennis bracelet is oof as is half of Tiffany's! I'd like to see at least one of those two in full focus.7

hotpasta? Nice work as usual, but I think I would have liked to ahve seen the jewellery come down more vertically in the frame.

Nice use of shallow DOF, and well designed layout for this shot.

Really good lighting, you've made the bracelet/necklace? and the ribbon look very nice. I'd have kept the whole name in focus though.

This is lovely, nice sparkle in the jewelry and good use of color and brand name.

Good idea, would have liked to see the whole Tiffany name in focus though instead of part of it. Good job!

not enough DOF
  Photographer found comment helpful.

i like this, but the white upper right corner is kinda distracting
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/08/2008 11:45:28 AM
I think this would benefit from a slightly deeper DOF so the entire name was in focus.

Enzo's little box again? Very nice shot, more for an ad than a catalog, though. Might work on a catalog spread page or title.

Very nicely done!

I like the way you composed this. However, something about the jewelry doesn't quite appeal as much as it's meant to. Maybe it needs to be polished so it sparkles? Or maybe all of Tiffany & Co. needs to be in focus -- a company would not put half its name out of focus for a catalogue.
