LOL @ 21.gif hesitant! :D

POST: THANKS for all of your comments and congrats! I'm so thankful for them.

BTW, I'm 48 now... and the ring that holds up the egg was gotten on a family trip to Mexico in our (very small) camper when I was twelve. My daddy snored. Yeah. He did.

Really loudly. *grin*

Those were the days...

Congratulations on your well placed finish. Yeah a ribbon baby! lol Although, I still am trying to figure how you got a one vote and four 2's. Makes me wonder, did they even notice the egg?
Ahh well, keep on smiling. Great work!!!

Nice and soothing
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/05/2010 07:17:27 AM
I like this very much, but it seems a bit grey to me. I think it could be lightened a tad and be more effective, imho, of course :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/04/2010 07:56:36 PM
Beautiful! Gets a 10 from me :)

Beautifully done! 10

03/03/2010 04:38:44 PM
Excellent control of exposure for this white-on-white. I don't find the ring so appealing, but I don't mean to insult your jewelry! It just seems less "pure" than the other materials. Overall very good job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/03/2010 03:59:53 PM
This should do very well. Can immediately see the professional lighting. This should take blue in my opinion. At least top 3.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/03/2010 03:56:33 PM
The shading is amazing! How did you do that?
