Nice idea, but your "prize" is a bit hard to spot in amongst the popcorn

Interesting idea, but the flash used for this makes it a bit flat. Maybe try it without the flash, since it is a stationary subject anyway. The composition is not bad, except my eye keeps traveling to that right upper corner. Not sure what I would do there, though.

Nice composition and color selection. Did you try placing the ring directly on a blue spot - it may be more effective,

Good thing you found it before you choked on it.

Nice idea. Lots of diamonds in the challenge, but I like this almost-believable context. The lighting is harsh and perhaps a little overexposed. The composition is o.k. but I miss the paper wrapping that comes with the prize and feel the set-up of the box is just a little too unnatural.

Too contrived for my tastes.

Nicely photographed. I wish that the ring was more obvious.

I think it would have been better to emphasize the ring better.

Nice idea, but the background is a little bland and the ring is hard to spot right away.
