    Very attractive shot. I find the background a bit distracting though. The shot, as framed, seems more about the background than the gem. I think cropping much closer around the gem would help.

    You've done a superb job of photographing the citrine gemstone; great lighting and wonderful detail. The background is unusual, but your composition really brings everything together beautifully.

    Good concept, well-composed and shot, even though the see-through portion is a rather small part of the image area.

    I looked all over the house for a plain mesh but could not find any.

    Beautiful cut, well shot, but I'm uncertain about the background and in particular the dots which pull my eye away from the subject. The black weave alone I think sets off the stone beautifully. White, black, colour subject, without pp makes this every effective.

    Nice sharp image but not too keen on your choice of background which tends to draw my eyes away from the gem.

    the crop could have been tighter but the texture comes through
