When two become ONE

(195mm macro setting, f/7.1, 1/100, ISO400)

Used natural light and spot metering. In Elements I sharpened, cropped and burned the black to make it darker.

CC welcome

Oh and my lens is now stuck in macro mode....HELP! Any ideas on how to get it out?! The little switch seems jammed.

Pretty. I love the dark background. Lighting, lighting, lighting. That is my new goal!

I'm so sorry about your lens! I have no idea what to tell you... I guess we'll just have to look at a lot of beautiful macro pictures from you. ;) I love your picture! The diamond looks like a heart, which is just perfect for the theme of ONE... beautiful picture, Brittney!

Brittney said...

It is a heart actually, Dave picked it out all by himself ;).

Mindy said...

Impressive! Way to go, Dave! :)

Melinda said...

I think it turned out very nice with the macro! Beautiful job!

Candace said...

I like it! Great job! And burning the black is always a great thing to do. I hate black that's not really BLACK. :)

Awww....sooooo sweet! STUNNING ring. (way to go Dave) but stunning SHOT goes to you!! Seriously beautiful.

Did you get your camera out of macro mode?

Katy said...

SIGH!!!! I LOOOOVE ring shots... you Nailed it too!! I love this picture, it's so beautiful (even MORE gorgeous when i clicked on it too!) And LUCKY YOU, that ring is so beautiful-- unique and stunning!!!! GREAT SHOT

Brittney said...

Yes! Its out of Macro mode. Dave woke up, fiddled with it for a moment and it was good to go. Boy did I feel stupid ;).

I really love the symbolism behind this picture. I love the lighting too. It could look really neat if you added some black at the top and had the rings at the bottom of the frame.

Janelle said...

I agree with everyone...great photo! The heart shaped stone is beautiful, and fairly unique, too (I would guess). When I click to enlarge the photo, I love all the wear and tear I can see on your husband's band. It's been through a lot, but still you're both here.

nice shot. guess the hubby has been doing a lot with his hands. you can see the detail of the scraths for sure.

Brittney said...

haha yeah, he always forgets to take his ring off when he works in hiw shop or on the cars.

I especially like how the ring looks worn. Like it's not a new love, but one that has weathered some of life's challenges.
