Gem Glow

Click the pic to enlarge


The facets on the centre stone of my favourite ring aren't as clear as I had hoped,
but as it turns out, I am really more taken with the reflections on the wood.

If I had a ring like that, I wouldn't be looking at its reflection on the wood...I'd be staring at its beauty on my fingers!!!

It's a neat photo, the reflections are very nice.

Getting details in gemstones are tough. Maybe a smaller aperture, like f20, would help.
