'Harpist in the Ring' (TSC - Get Personal + technical element)

'Harpist  in the Ring'  (TSC - Get Personal + technical element)
This is a ring that belonged to my Great Grand Mother and was given to me when my Mother passed away. I find it unusual and very appealing, but sadly it sits in a jewellry box collecting dust! It gave me a good feeling inside bringing it out to photograph! :-)

I used selective lighting and a worms eye close up view in an attempt to do it justice!

Nice work with the selective lighting and low angle =) But I think you could have combined even negative space technique, and add some generous empty space on the left.

A great capture of a once very fashionable item. Old it might be but you have captured the detail and colour beautifully.

It was worth saving for the good feeling, can you wear it on a hat or in your car?

we put them away again .. until another day ;-) makes for a very
interesting picture ... ;-) oOo
