Messing about with beads and rose petals on a white plate. Used CL-25WF lighting kit with diffuser bounced to ceiling, and a silver reflector. My aim was to achieve a little section sharp but to show off the soft colours of the petals - shot on f5.6.
Feel free to critique, as I'd like to do much more of this kind of shot.

Welcome back -its been a long time. Like your use of focus here but personally I might have just cropped a touch off the bottom.

Hi Ali. Great to see you back, and sounding so technical too. I hope you're not in danger of taking it too seriously as I always loved your sense of fun. Smile
I love what you've done with the floaty colours at the top and overall it looks splendid. I just feel I want a touch more definition at your focal point... even if it was only on the one gem. I tried a mod but the detail is not there to pull out.

So good to see you posting again. I have thought of you often and wondered how you are doing.
I like the feeling of this. If I were to change anything, it would be a tighter crop, I think there is a bit too much space at the top. Also just a bit finer focus on the "in-focus" bead. It has a soft and feminine appeal. Hope to see more.....

Hi Ali, good to see you! Those are lovely Troll beads, Lady Marian would like that glittery one! I very much like the look you're going for here.
