Took these for a client. This will be dual purpose, one set goes to the owner and one set goes to the jeweler. The husband to be likes pandas. When I went to China, I got gifts for folks and one of the things is a miniature 4 panel lacquered screen. So, I placed the ring on it since it had a panda on it. Taken with a 105, SB600 off camera main and the D200 flash set to commander, fill. Camera set to manual Center weight F11 @ 125.

Thanks, Dennis.

Hi Dennis, silver (or whitegold) should never be presented with yellow gold (at least i learned it that way). Id also have choosen a lighter coloured background (grey?) in order to let the ring stand out clearly. Can you check the focus point? From what i see in the reduced version here id say sharpness is not on the biggest dark stone in the center rather then the diamonds on the left of it. Even if the second shot is possible not the best presentation it has something of a still life which i like (and do to the story you told us it becomes a deeper meaning). Just my 2-cents
Cheers

I like the second one, has a very soft and airy feel to it. The first picture, at first glance, drew my attention to the sharpest point of the gold rock just below the ring. The ring seems to get a bit lost and overtaken with the gold background much like Virgil said.

Sorry for the late response, been out of town for a while. I agree about white/yellow gold being together, but the jeweler wanted them together. He had just received that gold nugget and wanted it to be framed with the ring before he turned around and sold it. The softness comes from the reduction, I re-checked and the black stone is clear. Thanks all for the comments, I appreciate it.

Thanks, Dennis.
