bien bessi como siempre :D
Different background colour is needed plus moving the subject away from the background helps to avoid shadows....
Agree with Graham. A single shoot with flash?
It gives the impression that all the ornament is made of natural elements and dry. The process is very good, some improvement in the composition could be done, for example, not so central, the more air above and below.
The use of flash does not bother me
... not bother me until I could change the angle to further separate the shadow, type shadow Chinese.
bad cut down and the harsh shadows
It reminds me of a cameo brooch
Glad I DID NOT VOTE on this Image YET, and you KNOW WHY SIR. At least I have The GUTS TO TELL YOU SO!
Really not bad :-)
Good process but the image is very flat to me.
Good shot.. small problems.
