Thanks. I tried cropping it closer, but I didn't like it for two reasons:
1) Didn't have the same 'effect' without being surrounded by as much black.
2) Zooming in so much brought out too many flaws in the 'stone', which is actually a child's toy with a gem like plastic piece attached to a light.

Different use of light and creative in every respect. Nicely lighted, the white are right on the edge which is a positive from a technical standpoint. From an artistic standpoint, it suffers from a loss of facet detail, but that is countered by the very interesting effect of the gentle curves of the light source itself. The top light bloom is distracting by being ever so slightly over done. A good solid demonstration of the creative use of lighting on the subject and a clever idea both from the technical and artistic aspects. Should place well in the challenge.


Thanks for the comments. The lack of facet detail is less about the photography and more about the fact that it is a child's toy without good clean lines between the facets :)

I wish you were right about my placement in the challenge too :(

lol, but I am happy to have finally submitted none the less.

Well, it was a rushed last minute entry, but I finally got around to entering a challenge. Didn't expect much score wise, but it felt good to finally submit instead of just look and vote.
