I only have two problems with this picture....
1. the red is a little overpowering
2. the DOF could have been a little deeper to get more of the ring in focus.

Too blurry and blown out to be considered for a print ad

The color is good, and I like the red reflecting on the gold, but the ring is out of focus - which is too bad, cuz I really like it otherwise.

Not quie crisp enough im afraid around the stone although great use of DOF here as seen in the material you have chosen to use with some good reflections into the ring off the material. maybe its the light source im unsure but would really love to have seen this a little sharper.

I can tell you had a difficult time with this subject, in comparison to the difficulty I had with mine. This could have used a longer exposure, of course with the proper aperature adjustments. It would have cleaned up the lighting a bit and there is a very harsh reflection of the lighting used in the gem.

Seems as if it is not focused enough

You had the right idea for composition, but the lighting is a bit harsh and the focus too soft.

I think, the lighting could have been better. The glare on the ring does not do it justice. 5

It looks somewhat blurry to me.

Light a bit too strong on the diamond. DOF just a little too shallow; the right side of the ring is out of focus. Good composition.

something about the focus in the picture bothers and there seem to be sometype of halo as well

This is a bit too closeup for my taste. It might work with a different color background but the red is overpowering and I'm not seeing any fine detail and color in the diamond(s). Some shades of blue work very well with diamonds. Best of luck in the challenge.

Great colours, I love the richness of the red combined with the gold. Focus on the jewellery is, to me, a little soft.

the thumbnail really looks good, but the full image has noise and detail issues imo.

I like this photo. I know that the lighting and focus couldn't have been an easy task. You pulled it off quite nicely.

Composition is there, but perhaps was cropped in too tight or at 118K, the image was compressed a bit too much. (try and make use of the full 150K when possible, as the image will always look better the less it's compressed) Detail/sharpness is a bit off too.
Not too bad regardless.

I like the idea, unfortunatly, the DOF is awful and the ring is largely blurry and/or out of focus. The Lighting is too strong and washs the ring considerably. With a better sharpening, the reflection on the diamond would've been very nice. The Red colour is very nice and would've done wonders if a better DOF and focus was used. Keep at it! 4

I think this has a lot going for it, but the focus and the noise are hurting this. pretty ring and good try.

Nice title, I like the idea, but it just looks out of focus to me.

I find that the texture in the red cloth ? distracts from the ring? in this image

There is a strange white glow around the ring. Looks out of place. Not sure what could've caused that.
