Re: Pandora Bracelet

Ok hows this I actually prefer the angle/composition of the first one but the aperture used on the second one

So would like to see the first one taken again with more of it in focus

I am being nit picky tho - they are still good shots

Wouldn't say you are a beginner either Ca - you've done the YoP lessons and have a grasp of the basics, easily

Re: Pandora Bracelet

Will take some more tomorrow

I still see myself as a beginner to photography though. I know the basics but its practise I need now. Maybe once the nights get lighter I will find some time to get out a bit more

Re: Pandora Bracelet

Oooh i have one of those but only have one teddy bear charm and 2 spacers on it at the moment.

Nice compositions, i would like to see what it looks like against a white background not grey really make it stand out and sparkle

I really like the copmpositions too, and I like the lighting in the first one.

LOL at the little "Finn" lookalike charm

Re: Pandora Bracelet

Ok I have attempted to try the suggestions above This is the best I could come up with today. The background is a bit whiter and there is more in focus. I need to dig the tripod out I think to work on it a bit more.
