    Thanks Jade O., it's been a great ride. Can't say the ring's been to exotic places but it's seen its share of the US.

    Wow, 43 years! You are fortunate to have a blessing of such a life shared; the ring looks like it has a great history.

    At first I thought there is too much negative space on the right. Then I noticed you were trying to include the shadow. I think you should have raised the light source to shorten the shadow so that you could then reduce the space on the right a bit.

    Great composition, with the shadow off to the side. Perfect lighting, which brings out the character of the ring.

    Well, it's been on my hand for 43+ years, involved in lots of around-the-house non-desk oriented projects so I'd guess that's why it looks a bit weathered. I've actually lost it on a golf course at one time only to have someone find it!!

    Well taken though I am interested in knowing why the ring looks a little weathered.

    This is a very powerful shot. What a beautiful ring - no doubt hand crafted. The composition is just right, especially the shadow and the faint reflection. The point of focus brings attention to the decoration on the ring too. High in my picks.

    Cool ring - and I like how its shadow is reflected inside the ring itself

    first of all, congratulations on 43 years!!!

nice composition with lighting and shadow. only suggestion would be to get the whole ring in focus.
