for this challenge, I looked at a pair of my earings and thought that maybe I could make them look like people dancing. When playing around, I decided to photograph them with a reflection, almost as if this "pair" was in a dance studio with a view. For that they were shot against the irregular and shiny suurface of my green cabinet.
I hope I was able to give the desired impression.

taken in jpeg format, daylight, macro mode.
edited in Adobe Lightroom. mostly the image was cropped and then the color saturation was changed (tried to take away the red). Also, adjustments in exposure, fill light, and so on.
resized in Apple's Preview.

I like this. Colors and composition are good. Would like a bit more shadow detail, though, especially in the earrings on left (the reflected earrings are fine).

Nice shot. I like the reflection and the fact that it stays true to the challenge. It's not made up.

good idea to work the shadows against the brighter background

Hmm. I can hardly see the earrings. Perhaps this could have been lit differently.
