Color is a bit off for diamonds, and the focus is a bit fuzzy.

I like the placement of the wording. However, the pendant itself appears out of focus and a little blown out.

This shot seems to be suffering from some digital artifacting...those jagged edges. Also, the lighting is harsh, making it difficult to sort out the fine detail of the shot.

To photograph one diamond is difficult. To take on this many may spell failure if definition and clarity is sacrificed. The layout is nice. Bumping up.

great composition and idea, unfortunately the stones aren't crisp and clear as needed for a print ad

Nice composition. Text is appropriate. Too many hot spots though

I wish the picture was clearer. You almost got the shine, but the pendant is slightly out of focus. Nice concept, tho.

nice shot i like the DOF, though the lighting is a little harsh.

Maybe it is just me, but it just seems a little blurry to me. I also think that a solid background may have put more of the focus on the pendant rather than trying to figure out what the background is.

Not very sharp/in focus

an image like this really needs it's main subject to be well focused
  Photographer found comment helpful.

The focus seems soft to me. Nice layout though.

I don't know if it is the lighting or the focus, but the diamonds are really hard to identify. The background is very distracting, maybe a contrasting color would have helped.

Nice layout, color, and lighting. Focus is a bit soft.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Looks like the focus is off on the diamonds or they are over-processed
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Interesting presentation, but difficult to see the diamonds because of the lighting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Neat idea wrapping the text arond the object. The jewelry piece itself is a bit bright and the detail of the stones is lost. Good luck in the challenge.

Composition works for me, as well as the text layout.
Personally the font used could have a little more feminine flair to it, which would soften teh feel there.
I'm sure you have received comments about the lack of detail here and can only suggest less of a crop, not shooting too close to the subject, a smaller aperature (if available).
Decent attempt at a difficult subject. (5)

Very origianl and I llike the way you used the shape to place the text. Great dof but the peice itself needs to be crisper as it is what you're trying to sell.

Diamonds don't seem to be in focus. Text on the left is not lined up with the side of the jewelry.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/26/2005 02:26:02 AM
the diamonds are out of focus the idea is good but needs to be sharper
  Photographer found comment helpful.

THis is a really cool idea, but the necklace is out of focus.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/25/2005 04:43:13 PM
beautiful!!! I like the focus, the color, the text, i like it all!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Good. It seems out of focus and there is a lack of sparkle for all those diamonds.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Massive focus/detail issue here: think that you are too close to the jewels. Reflections are looking dirty.

Lettering detracts: capitals are too big.

Fantastic!!!! A thought provoking advertisement!
