    I am not really sure of the sparkle looks good or not, and tell me what you think of the lighting.

    hmm, i've had a good long look at the photo but i can't quite put my thumb on whatever it is i should critique on. the sparkle is a tad distracting. perhaps try a more solid contrast with the dark and light sections so you have solid black in some places and solid light in others. i don't think i'm making much sense but i hope you can gain something from it!

    hmmm, highlights are good, sparkle is bad IMO...also, it looks a tad flat to me...maybe bump up the contrast, or something...i wanna see the green POP!

    I bought my wife one of these for christmas last year. The lighting is harsh, but I think it stands out. Kind of the opposite of the jewelry photography that we see in catalogues.

    It is probably more expensive than a couple of countries, but hey the little missus is worth it.
