    Broken Promises

    Now that I unexpectedly single, a suitable picture.
    The rings former owner had them under false pretenses and were no longer wanted, so I found a use for them.

    Nice shots, I favor the first one. Sorry about the broken promise though.

    As Orlando says, the story behind these images is one that, I'm sure, you hoped never have to tell. And that is always difficult.

    Life is full of disappointments...but also of new beginnings and hope..always hope.

    Graham, I admire you for taking something that is a source of pain and turning it into something bright and positive.

    Thanks all, you the story is an old one and will be told again and again by many.

    The background is some coral I found lying around the shore and I thought it would generally be a good contrast to jewellery - and as I don't own much myself (I have a wedding band somewhat larger sized, but that is all).
    I hope to be borrowing other jewellery now that I have a concept shot. Nice to add more to my portfolio as well as tell a story.

    I wanted the differential focus rather than have both pieces in focus. I prefer the first also, but I wonder if a little more focus on the engagement ring (bit too blurred) would enhance the composition?

    Hi Graham,

    I too prefer the first, but tend to agree with you that a little more DoF would help, perhaps to get the heart shape, not so much the stone, sharper.
