I had really hoped to do something better for this challenge, but this is what I get for waiting until the last minute!

Post Challenge: In an attempt to mimic the scene from the movie, I cut my fingernails very very short and rubbed dirt on them. I promise my hands aren't usually that grubby! :)

One of the better ring shots, I think it was nicely done, however the yellow background is a bit distracting, maybe some dark foliage or something would have been better. but the dirty fingers and such really adds to it.

Given my past experience, I bet you're getting dinged for the dirty hands, however it's true to the movie so I'm bumping you up for same.

Good take on the challenge - however, I really think the ring needs a bit better lighting, a bit less scratches (I think of this ring as invinsible)

Nice prop, shame about the nails. Get a manicure before their next macro assignment. :-P

With cleaner hands this would work better. The yellow background was a nice idea.
